March 20, 2009
Got some pictures that I didn't have before for blogs, wanted to share!
Remember we were talking about exercising Chisty's tongue! Here she is with Malea showing the lollipops! (right).
In these pictures Christy in the standing frame. We have seen more recent photos, but this is at the beginning in the standing frame with PT!
Christy has come a long way and is on the road to walking ! We're so excited for the daily
progress she makes each day. Physical therapy does all kinds of stretching and Range of motion every day. This is another picture of the stretching.
The blog site didn't turn the picture right side up for the first time. It must be because I'm only getting some of the picture on all of
these. Something with the download from email or something. I see the whole picture on my desktop, but it doesn't all upload! sorry!
The weekend is here and Christy will be resting and relaxing all weekend. Luckily she has the free pass to go to hang at the
apartment with Don & Alan guys!
This is a picture from the day that Christy got her Chest tube out. The chest tube that Christy had this time didn't need to be big- It's about 1/8 in diameter from the original chest tube. When Christy first collapsed her lung after the accident, she needed the big chest tube. They just clean the area, cut the sutures and pull out the tube! Christy was probably tender in that area for the day, but she was able to do therapies like a champ still!!
Don't forget, your I heartChristy tee-shirts are for sale for $10.00 if you order before April 1, 2009. You can send checks to Gail Gouveia and contact her by email which is email@example.com. The twins are wearing one's in BLACK. The back says I heart Christy. I think the shirts for sale are white.... just my guess. The immediate family wore black ones at the fundraiser event!
Loving you Christy! Have a wonderful weekend!
