This is me in my latest piece of equipment it is called a bumbo
I wanted to keep this blog happy and positive and I have some really great news about my progress! All of this has happened in the last week.
My vision... My eyes seem to have improved! To focus on my hand I used to hold my fingers 5cms from my face, and to see my fingers now I hold them around 15cm from my face! I can also see that people are there from further away too!
My right arm... I used my right arm to stretch my back. I lifted it right up above my head and did my "I'm so tired but I'm awake stretch"
My left arm... I hadn't seen my Great Grandma for a while and when she was giving me a cuddle. I straightened my back, lifted my head pushed my self out with my arm and looked around - you have never seen someone so excited to see what I can do.
My left fingers... I can seperate out my fingers now. I can put one or as many as I want to in my mouth. I can isolate my thumb only if that's what I feel like doing. (I still can't grab or hold though)
My left leg... I was rocking out in my bouncer- my favourite thing in the world, and I kicked my foot on the corner of the wall. Mum thought I would cry, but I tapped my foot around to find it again and I kicked myself away from that darn wall! It was in my way!
My Torso... As you can see I have a new piece of equipment called a bumbo. It helps me to sit by supporting my hips. It is my job to work my abdominal muscles to balance me so I can sit upright. I have had comments today from the physio about how much more strength I have in only one week.
My Eating... You may also notice that my Nasal Gastric Tube is gone. It fell out and Mum decided not to take me for a new one (I'll say yet). It's a good thing she didn't because I had forgotten how to eat. I'm all good now though, wolfing down 5 meals per day! Let's see if this helps my weight!
Thanks to everyone that takes the time to read about me. Please join as a follower so that I know you are there!
