Today I turned 24. Besides the fact that I feel like I am getting old, it was a good day. My dad was talking more and seemed to be improving. He swallowed some ice on a more regular basis! This may sound like something strange to get excited about but a few days ago he couldn't swallow and he was so frustrated he couldn't have water (it was very hard to watch) so this is good news. I enjoyed eating dinner with the family and Megan and Whitney. Thanks to everyone for all the love and support. This will be a birthday to remember!
