Ups and Downs!

What a day! Today was the 1st real day of therapy for Makenzie! She did GREAT!! She did cry a good deal but I guess we can count that as FREE respatory therapy!

We started with some stretching and ROM. (Range of Motion)Then we put her in the suit and worked a bunch on sit to stand, weight shifting, and tall kneel.

Then we moved into the spider cage. Makenzie hates to be in all four's, tall kneel and side sit! We worked a ton on these today! It was GREAT....other then the crying! Makenzie was so loose afterward!

Then we worked with weights. Makenzie loved watching the dog move up and down when she kicked her leg! I think this was her favorite part of the day!

After that she stood for about 30 mins!!! WOW! This is just what she needs to keep those hips nice and healthy!!! Wheew.... we're done... or were we?.... NOPE!

On to listening therapy! She did much better today and even sat with Miss Ginnie for a bit without crying! Yeah! Ok now we really were done and on our way home!!!

Then of course we had to go see the ocean!!! Thanks Julie for the wagon!!!

All in all it was a good day!!! Makenzie did very well! I can't wait to see how much Makenzie learns in the next few weeks!!! PRAY!!!

I have been following your blog now for about a month. I found the link through Christians website. Your princess is one of the cutest little girls I have ever seen. I am praying for healing. It broke my hear to see her crying in that video today. You are strong for letting her continue the exercises even though they upset her. It will help her in the long run but it is so hard to watch.
