It's 65 degrees outside. The leaves are changing and we're surrounded by greenery.
We're not in Arizona anymore, Toto.
Nope, we're in Michigan!
The flight went surprisingly well. This was, after all, our first time flying with Christian post accident, and Lola's first time flying outside of my belly.
And a little shout out to Frontier Airlines for serving chocolate chip cookies on their flights. Good call, Frontier. Major points. Not to mention, they were so helpful and accommodating the whole way through.
Christian had his own seat so he got to sit up like a big boy.
Hey, big boys sleep in big boy seats, too!
We finally checked in to the hotel and what was there waiting for us at the front desk? A basket of goodies from Euro-Peds! So sweet!
We had our first session this morning and it went well. It was more of an evaulation but we did get down to business. Christian did stretching and at the very last hour, I think Christian had just had enough. He had been pushed past his limits. Which was a shame because we tried to give him his first bicycle ride and he just about flipped out. Done does not even begin to explain it...
Why did I post such a torturous event?
Well, because this is his first bike ride! Too bad he hated it, but I don't think the bike should take it personally. It'll be better next time, bike. He was just spent.
And this was him upon completion of the bike ride...
And not to be outdone, Lola was introduced to a toy shopping cart just the right size for her 9 month old stature. So she got to try out her walking skills.
I still can't believe we're actually in Michigan attending this therapy. I'm so thankful for my family because I COULD NOT do this alone. My mom is helping, my sister and her family are helping, and Manny will be coming to get us. Also, Miracle Flights is an over the top, amazingly generous organization that helps children get to where they need to go for therapy and medical treatments. We are so blessed to have their assistance with our tickets, as well.
Of course, we wouldn't even be in Michigan were it not for all of Christian's supporters, those who've donated, and those who participated in any way, shape, or form with the blogction last week (I'm almost done notifying every winner, I just have a few left).
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
More therapy coming up and more pictures and video to follow.
