Hola mi amigos! This is Ka'eo subbing in for the Gabster because she has had to work for the last couple of days. Sorry we are posting this late, but we neither of us was feeling very good last night.

Christy went through her normal routine this morning of OT and PT. During her PT she spent most of he time working on her walking. According to Donald, Christy was doing avery good job of walking with the walker. She slowly but surely continues to gain more and more balance and strength to support herself.
She also spent time working to knock the cups down. Not sure how it works, but I know the good news was that she is recognizing colors meaning her vision is getting better. She is also gaining more control over her right arm which she has had trouble with up to this point. She finished PT with some good old abs work. Take a look at the pictures and you'll get a good idea of what her days have been like.

Apparently they have been working more and more on her core strength. We all know that is the first place they need to work on before they can work on strengthening the rest of her body. Building the support first is critical.

Sorry for the brief reports, but Donald and Christy have been spending a lot of time with the kids, so they are very brief when we speak to them. The good news is that she is continuing to improve and is pushing herslef more and more since the kids have been there. Keep working hard Christy and we love you!
