Practicing sitting

I have been working on my sitting. I need help to get into position, I can't sit up by myself, but I am learning to balance. Did you know that if you put your arm out it can help stop you from falling over??
I managed to do this for a long time this day. It must have been on a day that I had my hamstrings worked on. I have had trouble doing this now, I must be a bit tight in my legs again.

Pushing up

This is me at the Andrea Plumb Clinic, one of the first times I was starting to push myself up

The more I practice the easier it is starting to become. I am also learning that if I spend more time pushing up, Andrea has less time to work on my muscles he he, clever.

Happy new year!

Happy new year everyone!

A big thank you to everyone that helped me through last year, your support has meant so much and you have helped my family and I through a really hard year. To everyone that gave their time, donated money or took the time to ask how I was doing, what you did for us was really appreciated.

You all helped me to raise all the money I needed for my therapies and specialist appointments that would have otherwise been hard- nearly impossible for me to do. As a result there are some things that I find easier to do.

In 2010.....

I learned to roll!
I started to eat!
I learned to push up!
I can follow a torch light with my eyes!
I tried to sleep and was good at it for a while!
I tried to sit up (more like stomach crunches)!

There is so much more I will try to achieve this year in 2011! Bring it on!
