I feel good!
Not great, but good. —Nick Fener
I haven’t heard him say anything like this in weeks! He had a chance to loosen up today and move his body more in one hour than in the last three weeks combined.
That’s right, he finally got to swim again! Swimming outside on a beautiful day made a huge positive impact on him physically and mentally. A little vitamin D, and a lot of gravity-free movement turned today into a fabulous today.
This morning I looked under the bandage on his back and decided it was healed enough to swim. Once in the pool, we swam lap after lap, in every which direction, dodging children left and right. He didn’t stop the whole time – making large, fluid kicks with his water legs, which is normally difficult for him.
I can’t help but wonder if he’ll be sore tomorrow.
