Week Made.

I love when new and positive changes happen with Christian. It really makes my day. Actually it makes my week and today my week was made.

Today the new in-home physical therapist visited again and she was awesome! They all bring something to the table and this PT brings like 200 years of experience. Okay...more like 20 or something, but still.

She pushed him harder than I've seen any therapist push him. I'm used to almost everyone treating him with kid gloves and as well they should. But she really pushed him past his limits. And he cried and cried but she pushed and pushed. He really seemed to respond well and do some things I don't think I've seen him do but something in me knew he was capable of doing it.

Christian held his head up while in a kneeling position without much resistance in his legs. He worked hard! It's better to see for yourself!

Wow! That is amazing. I am so impressed with how much he is accomplishing in such a short amount of time. He is such a fighter. I know that he will only improve more and more everyday.

Great job Shauna and Christian!

Thank you for sharing that made me smile and cry at the same time.

He's doing great holding his head up! It's also great to hear his "voice!" I don't think I've heard it before! I love those kinds of therapists - sometimes it's easy to get in a rut and do the same stuff over and over! Great job!

Oh my goodness. LOVE it Shauna. Love his voice. Collin's PT pushes Collin too, even on his not so good days. It will get better. I hated to see Collin cry but he has come so far and it is because his PT pushed him! You are doing an awesome job!
