Josh continues to work hard in therapy.
Walking is still a struggle. However, yesterday
he walked about 50 steps with very little assistance
from his therapist at his side.
After therapy, Darling and I met to transfer Josh from
her car to mine so I could take him home. It is usually
a car to wheelchair then wheelchair to car transfer.
This time, we stood Josh up, then walking between the two of us,
he took about 6 steps to my car and then transferred in.
This is a first!
Josh is in the pool today at Bryn Mawr. He hates it,
but it is doing him some good.
Josh's middle name is Daniel, for my Uncle Dan who passed
shortly before Josh was born. In the picture above, Josh
is wearing a Dan's leather vest. Dan hand made the buttons
from silver coins. His wife and family gifted this to Josh just recently
and he loves it! Thank you!
More good stories as they happen!
