For the past couple months, we have been heading to water therapy a couple times a week. It is definitely a good thing – Em enjoys it and it has helped with her stamina and stability. It may not be a miracle cure, but it is one of those things that quietly helps improve life and I am very thankful for it.
Just for fun, I thought I would share a few pictures of the pool Em has therapy in and show what has been taking up our time recently. I would have taken more (and shared them) but Em was not terribly thrilled with me taking pictures of her in the pool and spent half the time on this particular day glancing back at me to keep an eye on me and giving me the evil eye. Which was a tad bit counterproductive but her therapist had a laugh about it, so it all worked out.
So, that is what we have been up to for the past couple months. Yesterday was her last appointment but we see the therapist on Monday for a re-eval and will start some land based therapy – looking forward to it since it will be a couple years since she had a course of land therapy.
Hmmm… Now that I am thinking about it, I guess her last (and first) real course of land was in 2009 after she hurt her knee, long before the diagnosis – so that is more than a couple years. She had to be dismissed after a couple months because therapy was only causing her more pain as she deteriorated and she had stopped making progress. Definitely looking forward to building on the progress we have recently made.
