A beautiful day

Pre SDR playing outside was always challenging because when standing, we needed to be behind Thomas holding back his knees in the attempt to make sure his legs were straight and to try and prevent his knees from ‘kissing’. Fighting against his spasticity, his tone in this way was hard work and always felt we were interfering with their playtime. Today, on this beautiful autumnal day, we still needed to be there but look at the beautiful standing – legs straight and there is space between his knees! These changes really are a big deal as it means the right muscles are being engaged and nearly 4 weeks post- op he is beginning to get his confidence back and wanting to try things again. It’s a beautiful, beautiful day.
