As parents, we always want the best for our children and their well-being is of the utmost importance to us.
For the past year and a half, my exposure to Harrison’s therapies, outside of witnessing his advancements and improvements, have been photos and a text or phone call update from Jenna after each visit. I have very much been a spectator. However, this Christmas break, I had the opportunity to take a week off and be a part of his therapies firsthand. So it is truly an understatement when I say the past week has been an emotional experience for me.
I know Harrison puts in the work week in and week out, not just at home with us, but during the week with his therapists. I see it, not just in his advancements, but in how tired he is on certain evenings. How he doesn’t want to put in the work at night standing up, or raising his arm up. How his mom wants to show me something once I’m home, but he has zero interest in cooperating.
That has been the sum of my exposure to Harrison’s therapies until this week.
Now, I’ve seen it. I’ve witnessed it with my own eyes. I’ve fought back tears on numerous occasions as I watched my son work and try to accomplish the goal in front of him. I’ve seen the love and support he is surrounded by, with EVERYONE knowing his name and saying hi to him. I’ve witnessed and was a part of a large portion of Jenna’s and Harrison’s life that, until this week, I was, at best, an observer.
From day 1, I have been thankful for Hogg Therapy Pediatrics and Harrison’s therapists. After witnessing and being a part of therapy. To see how these therapists work with and interact with my son. To see in them their drive and their desire for my son to continue to move forward and to continue to improve, I’m exponentially thankful.
I am thankful I took the time and had the opportunity this past week. I feel like now; I know things. I understand things, and I am so very, very thankful for all at Hogg Therapy.
