About Me

I am 7 years old and my favorite activities include listening to music, going to a pool with my dad, having books read to me, and playing with my 3 year old sister Hana (although we fight sometimes).

Let me tell you a little bit about myself. When I was 10 months old, I fell from a booster seat and hit my head. I don't remember much but I was carried to a hospital in a helicopter where I was diagnosed as having a traumatic brain injury. With internal cranial bleeding, I went through a surgery. My doctor told my parents that I had a 50:50 chance of surviving but I fought for my life and survived. But as a result of my injury, I lost control of my body. When I left the hospital, I wasn't able to hold up my head, move around on my own or eat my favorite food anymore.

Since then, I have worked really hard to gain back what I had lost. Physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, feeding therapy and other therapies became part of of my daily routine. Most of the time I don't enjoy these therapies because the therapists work me really hard and I cry sometimes. Nothing comes easy to me but gradually I made progress. I am now able to hold up my head, make eye contact with my parents, eat more food from my mouth, and even speak a few words (I can say my mom's name too). Also, my parents got me a nice walker which helps me stand on my legs and move around a little. Recently, I also started going to an elementary school where I enjoy spending time with other kids.

Although I have my challenges, I am a normal boy who loves to do things that other kids enjoy. I just can't do everything well. But my parents love me very much and I take my life one day at a time. And I don't take for granted any little progress that I being able to walk a few steps further using my walker.

So when you see me, please hold my hand and say hi! I am very friendly and I like to make new friends.

Thank you for reading my blog!! God bless you.
