Small Victory

One of the most significant affects of Cash's tumor has been the limited use of his right side - more specifically his right hand and leg.  Since my parents have been here they've been working with him to use his right hand more and while this video doesn't look that impressive, it's a small victory in this long fight.

We're thankful to God for this small victory and know that even after treatment, Cash has a long journey ahead of him.  I'm certain there will be months, if not years, of physical therapy to rebuild and retrain his muscles once the tumor resides.  He is willing to learn, however, and even though he doesn't like us pushing him to use his right hand, he's becoming more comfortable with using it again.

Have a blessed rest-of-the-week and thank you for your thoughts and prayers!
