Callie is still making progress!!! We're looking forward to seeing you all at the concert

This a picture of Callie with one of her physical therapists (yesterday)!
She is making so much progress!
As you can see, she is learning to stand on one foot & very aggressive about it!
Just today her occupational therapist was so excited about all the progress Callie has made just since the last time she saw her a week ago! Callie had her amazed the whole time!
We are all looking forward to seeing you all at the concert this weekend.
I think that Callie will have such a great time. I just think it will be great to be able to see everyone not in the hospital!!!
We're so grateful to all of you.
Last week at Callie's eye Dr. appt, he gave basically no hope
of her ever having the use of her left eye.
While that may be the case, I still feel that we need to try to do whatever we can to save it.
Her therapist says that she does differently than other children she has worked with that are blind in one eye. So if any of you have any suggestions, we are open to hear them!
We are grateful to all that is being done to make this concert happen. It will be covered by Channel 15 News I hear!
We hope that all is going good for you & yours!
All Our Love & Gratitude,
The Butler Family

I took this picture to day at therapy. Callie was playing tug of war with her occupational therapist. She had just actually made a real smile just before I took this picture! It made me cry. I tried to make it bigger, but couldn't figure it out. Look how her mouth is more symmetrical & if you could see better, you can actually see white & iris in her left eye!!!
Three times in the last week, she has felt us put ointment in her left eye!!! Woo Hoo!
I'm blown away.
Thank you soooooo much for all of your concern, thoughts, faith & prayers on Callie's behalf! We are sooooo blessed & SOOOOOO Grateful!
