Madison was up bright and early to head to Neurochangers for some walking. She beat her record for the most stairs climbed by herself… 550 stairs in 12 minutes! Her watch has been such an awesome motivation for her.
After a great workout she went for a visit with Shannon for a nice leg massage. She felt great after!
Madi and Jacks favourite activity of choice right now is puzzles! They love to sort and figure them out together. Most of their afternoon was spent with all their new puzzles from Christmas.
Madi and Jack stayed inside today to hide from the cold and had a full day of playing with their Christmas toys. It’s very rare that we have nothing on the schedule, so they stayed in their pj’s and played all day – whatever they wanted to do they did- it was a fantastic day!
Thank you for all of your support this past year!
Madison is loving her new activity tracker watch. She wore it for the first time today and was super motivated to be active all day long and walk as much as she could. Her day started bright and early at Neurochangers which helped her rack up almost 1,000 steps to start her day!
She then headed to see Dr Rummell for a follow up on her eyes. Everything with her glasses is looking good! We will go back again in July to see if patching is needed.
Jack and Nate had some boy time while Madi was at all her appointments. Paw Patrol and train sets makes for a good morning!
Later in the day Daddy arrived home with the new family companion….his name is Hank (temporary name) and he is 3 years old and is an English Bulldog mix. He has one eye and is possibly deaf, but is great with kids and cats and is a rescue from the Bancroft area. We have a few weeks to see if he’s a good fit, but so far so good.
Madi had her last session at Neurochangers today before Christmas. She did a great job even though she was really tired. Most of her walking was done on “active assisted” which means that she had to initiate each and every step before the machine would do the work. This is much more difficult, but she is really making progress with it.
Madison is so excited for her buddy Cruz who will be having his SDR surgery with Dr Park tomorrow! Dr Park told Cruz he will be able to walk independently, run & jump! Good luck Cruz!
