Things have been very mellow over here. We are working very hard on strength in Christina's legs. Since the phenol it is very apparent how weak that the muscles are. ( CP will do that.)  We have started swimming again and Christina is glad to be back at the pool. We went on Thursday and she doggy paddled to a beach ball and then grabbed it. When she would grab the ball it would squeak and she though that was the funniest  thing ever.  It was so amazing to see her see the ball and reach up for it - it was a big beach ball.

Today we all went to Walmart for kitty stuff and Christina walked the width of the store. She was very tired but refused to stop. We did the walk with a few breaks. She is also sick again with a cold. It has been a bad season of colds.

Christina has also had great luck with sitting up and being able to control her upper half. The phenol has helped with the myoclonic jerks that use to make her loose her balance.  She is also working real hard in her gait trainer and walking with her braces.

She is such a trooper and refuses to give up.

We are waiting to find out if we can get her a touch screen computer. She does wonderful with the touch i pod and we can only imagine what she will be able to do with a whole screen. We will find out if funding will get her one soon. All of her therapist are pushing for her.

If anyone would liek to see more pictures check out the slide show.
