Austin's New Skill



Obviously the 8 weeks of extra physical therapy have helped.  He can now jump and get both feet off the ground.  Before he would drag that right leg.  So kudos Austin. 

It looks like his hockey will be starting in January.  It'll be Sunday mornings and we are so excited.  Everyone has been so supportive of it and I'm sure he'll have a lot of fans there watching him, even though it'll be quite a drive.  Can't wait to share all the action with you all!

Thank you girls! We just love every achievement no matter how big or small it is. He is so proud when he has a success.

I'm still speechless seeing how well he did with this. WTG Austin!

Amy said...

Oh wow! Go Austin! Fantastic jumping. How exciting! We love hockey, so we look forward to seeing future updates.

Thanks Julie and Amy - His therapist has been sending progress reports to his doctor and since he's doing so well we are going to keep up the twice a week therapy until the end of the year and reevaluate then.

At least it's cheaper than I thought. Only 10% copay versus $20 which I thought it was. I can handle that.

Thanks Jill - With another 6-8 weeks of therapy scheduled I'm sure he'll be making even more progress!
