Update on Josh...

A few months ago we mentioned that Josh had the opportunity to work with a device called a Tobii Eye Tracker while at the San Antonio VA. This is a very expensive piece of equipment that actually tracks the movement of Josh's eyes on a computer screen and was on loan to the VA while Josh was there. The VA in Fayetteville was able to get us one on loan for Josh to use at home for the next 3 weeks! I went over this afternoon to see Josh and my mom set up the tracker to show me what it could do.

It has been a difficult 7 months and we have prayed for this day to come for a while now. W
