Sandra’s therapies are going quite well. She is allowed to walk about 20 feet now without using the walker or someone holding her belt. This gives her quite a bit more freedom to do simple tasks on her own. On the down side, her mother still has to administer her daily shots of blood thinner and they are painful for Sandra and cause the veins in her stomach to spider and turn blue like varicose veins. I’m not sure how much longer she will have to take them.
It will be some time before she will be able to do things on her own. She is not happy about that and is frustrated about her progress. We see it differently of course since we know where she started and how far she has come.
The kids are getting readjusted to their regular school routine (we call it school for Cameron, but it’s really daycare). I can see why they say, “It takes a village to raise a child”. I think we may be a village short here as it’s just 4 adults. But we muddle through anyway.
