A few days ago in physical therapy, Taylor’s PTs stood her up. Afterwards, her PT said, “What do you want to do next?” and Taylor said, “Bring on the walker!” She has said this before, as she is adamant about getting back on her feet, but each time prior, Taylor was told that she was not ready. However, on that day, they decided to give it a try, and Taylor walked using the assistance of a special walking machine and her PT. This was on my birthday, and it was the best present ever!
If anyone is having trouble seeing the video please let me know. This is a first attempt to add video to this website, and I want to make sure everyone can see it. (A big “thank you” goes to Kit’s cousin, Pansy, for shooting this particular video with her phone). Hopefully, there should be more videos of Taylor to come.
In addition to walking, she and I play catch with a ball now. Every day she is doing more and more, and it is exciting to see her develop each day.
Magnesium Update: Her levels are still low, and we are working with different types of pills that are easier to keep down. Yesterday, she was able to keep down two slow-acting magnesium tablets without feeling queasy by taking them with meals and just before going to sleep.
