Thursday is a no school day which means it’s a therapy day!
Madi started her day with a morning at March of Dimes Conductive Ed. It’s so wonderful seeing their goals align with the St Louis team goals – Madi is thriving because of this alignment.
She then spent some time with her aunts enjoying some lunch and the sun and then headed up to Windreach for a ride on Sassy.
Madi really enjoyed riding outdoors today visiting the other horses and enjoying the sun.
After riding, Madi headed for a visit with Shannon for a massage. They focused on her hamstrings and glutes and Madi felt great after! She went right for the sticker stash on her way out.
Here are some videos from Madison’s evaluation in St Louis!
Madison was back at school today and loved seeing all of her teachers and friends. It was library and pizza lunch all on the same day! After school she went to do some physio with Stephanie. They worked on some of their same goals like walking but incorporated some skills the team in St Louis suggested such as walking with only 1 cane, stepping up and down on objects for weight transfer and dynamic hamstring stretches. Mommy was thrilled to see Madison walk out of Variety Village through the parking lot for the first time only holding just one hand.
Jack continues to love his time at Jackie’s house with all his friends!
He also loves sleeping with his best friend- his ball.
Madison and Mike started their work together today at Train Like Heroes. She will be doing her strength program there a few times a week to continue with her work from Mike Poole and her home program. She worked hard, had lots of giggles and loved it! Thanks Mike for a great first session – you held her accountable, challenged her and kept her moving for an hour with a smile on her face. It was a big success!
