Talk about the highs and lows of life. This weekend I could barely get out of bed; today I couldn’t stop dancing and singing! I felt happy to the depths of my soul today. I felt good on so many levels. Helping Nick get independent on his hand crutches this morning was the highlight of my day. We did one practice run, through the whole house. I spotted him the entire way and was totally useless. He was solid. So I grabbed my camera for the next lap. He impresses the hell out of me. The drive he has, and the way he pushes himself through pain and exhaustion is a testament to his commitment to succeed. There is no way he would be this far already, if it wasn’t for his sheer will.
At Project Walk, he walked across the therapy floor while just holding onto Bri’s forearms. No harness, no walker. And when he got to his destination, the parallel bars, he didn’t need to stop and sit. He kept going on the bars. Incredible!
