In Good Standing

Standing

Today Taylor stood up in physical therapy with the help of a standing machine and two helpers. The machine is made to mimic the motion of standing from a seated position. This is better than just pulling her up as it works all the right muscles. All the help is there to ensure that she is standing correctly but she is still doing the work.

Singing Therapy

Taylor has devised her own therapy method. She sings along to the songs playing on her Pandora mix. It is amazing to watch and a big hit with all the staff on the floor. This is amazing considering it takes her a beat to form words. To line up her words to the music she has to accurately gauge the time between when she “places the order” to speak and when the words actually come out. She manages to line up the words with the song exactly.

Team Lew

Taylor’s aunt Pansy came by with another load of home cooked meals for Taylor’s out of town family staying in Denver (right now just me) and chopped up some for Taylor so she could have a home cooked meal as well. The local family support we have received in Denver has been spectacular.

  6. Standing and singing…wow! Looking at the photos, I note that Taylor looks in better shape than I am. Given what she’s been through over the last two months, this is embarrassing for me. Go, Taylor!
