Dominic worked really hard today. We had Physio at 9am and then again at 5pm. He was struggling a bit sitting in his pushchair but once at physio not bad. I think he is more scared than anything. He has done all kinds today, thrown in a barrell to get sensation of rooling, excellent high kneeling, great sitting and knocking down towers built by Daddy and even took a couple of very supported tentative steps – without any scissoring!!! These are very early stages and he has a lot of work to strengthen his legs but has a fighting chance now seeing as the scissoring has gone. We went up to the garden for a bit and he went shopping with Susie and came back with another balloon! Got a couple of lovely e-cards thru the hospital – thanks Chris L and Dave and Angela was lovely to receive them.
I have posted some videos of today sessions. As much as you all love Dominic I am sure there is only so much sitting and knocking down blocks you can watch so I have mainly posted them for his doctors and phyios if they are checking in as they will find them more interesting. They are good comparisons for a few weeks down the line.
After a 90min therapy session in the morning he can come home to his American home! Can’t wait missed us all being together.
