Is that light at the end of the tunnel?

We have been slowly climbing the mountain, navigating the dark tunnel. We can almost see the mountain top, the light at the end of the tunnel.

Shivam re-took his first steps today. He walked ten long steps. The world stood still while he tried to balance himself. In a different world, Meera also took her first steps. We missed them. But now she shows off her new found walking freedom to Urmila when ever they meet.

Shivam's morphine is being reduced 1 unit everyday. His infant formula is being increased 5 ml every day. His TPN and Lipids are being reduced too. All in all, good signs. He does throw up a few times a day, but that's expected. Sort of.

Shivam is loving to ride his tricycle around the floor. Here are some moments captured yesterday and today.

Its a huge winning smile! Could steal anyone's heart. It lights up not only his face but our hearts too. Its like a new bloom under a radiant sun. The light is right here, now... amidst us. There is no end of a tunnel to await.
Meera's first steps are so symbolic of happiness tip toeing into your lives.
