More on mHBOT

We ended up taking a 10 day break because of the ear and the new tubes. We resumed and were able to get in another 66 1/2 hours to make a total of 90. (Our goal!)

He is definitely stronger! He is now able to pull himself to a standing position without any help, prior to this he would crawl over to you or something to pull up on and he can now stand up from the middle of the room!! He has done this in front of us at least 20 times now - but doesn't fully realize that he can do it every time yet. It is very exciting!! He is also getting off of furniture much easier, walking much better, faster (almost running!)

Originally, the chamber was to be picked up on Labor Day weekend, but because he has done so well with it the office has given us another couple weeks. This has allowed us to take another 10 day break (that ends today) and get in another 30 hours before the chamber is returned so if all goes well we will have a total of 120 hours in by the 25th. After the 30 hours, we will take a month long break to see what progress is made. The oxygen continues to heal during the break periods and that is when a lot of people see most of their gains.

Hopefully October will bring some good things!
