Today's Visit

Today was a beautiful day.  The weather could not have been any better with brilliant blue skies and a light breeze to keep it just a little cool and comfortable.  Even better was our being able to visit with Tyler at the park.

As usual he seemed to be a little taken back with seeing us at first.  But that quickly wore off and many of his old tendencies with us came back.  We spent about an hour with him, which he was happy to spend with us as well.  We got some pictures and walked some laps around the park.  

He was with one of his terrific caregivers today which gave us a chance to catch up on how Tyler is doing.  According to him Tyler has been continuing to make great strides in his new home.  His aggression toward staff for now is almost completely non-existent.  He has stopped kicking at the walls so well now that everything has been repaired and freshly painted and the house is looking great.  He and his housemate have seemed to find a mutual understanding of how to co-exist and may even be forming a bond.  Church continues to go very well.  The agency is also looking at more and more opportunities to get him out into the community.

The best part of all is that right now Tyler seems to be happy with his life.  He looks healthy, he is smiling from ear-to-ear, and all reports from everyone are that he is well adjusted to his home.  He has made it his new home and his new normal. He has grown to trust those that are caring for him and to build bonds with them.  But as you can see from the pictures he is glad to revisit the bond he has with all of us as well.  

I'm sure he feels the devotion and love we have for him and that as long as we walk this earth he will always have that.  

It really was a beautiful day.

Be well and God bless.  Tom
