Feet and Legs

Met up with work friend today, who I haven't seen since Joey was in ICU. We share the same birthday (a few years apart), and while we are similar, we are so very different too! Good to catch up. Or rather, nice of her to listen. :-)

John took Josh to the hospital today to have the casts that were placed on last Monday removed, and a new casting put on. Black casts last week. Back to red this week. Joshy's physio managed to get a few more degrees range in his feet.

John also bought back a standing frame. It used for what the name suggests. We lay the stand down, Josh lays in it, we put supports on his legs, velcro strap him in, and then stand the frame up, so Josh is… standing! Great weight bearing excercise! We’re to do this 3 times a day for around 10 minutes a time.

Fab! Another positive step!

I'm so excited for you with this. We used to put a stool in front of her so she could rest her arms and we had one of those microbead cushions that are all squishy so if she lost head control it wouldn't hurt. Another thing we had was a water filled mat toy for her hands to rest on for stimulation.
