This is an exaggeration it wasn’t all woe but Tal woke at 6-00am, the sun was bright and so was he.Unfortunately by 11-00am he was really too tired for his Physio.
Mike used his new monster truck to tempt him to walk up a ramp.
He then sat him on a bench which he tipped in each direction to see how he kept his balance.Tal DID NOT LIKE THIS!
We then tried a sit on stool with wheels he could scoot with his feet.Despite mum , grandma and Mike all scooting like maniacs on our own scoots in a race…Tal DID NOT LIKE THIS!
We then tried to get him walking with his walker.Claire had to bribe him with chocolate raisins.
Finally we reached the treadmill.
Yesterday Tal did 4 minutes but today Tal DID NOT LIKE THIS!
He had “jello legs”
Mike then said he had heard one of the other kids was playing with the monster truck.
The problem was the timing he was tired and getting hungry so we asked if there was any chance we could change the timings…..tomorrow he starts at 8-00am so he is already in bed … no ‘lie-ins’
We had promised to meet the boys in the Zoo which is just next to the hospital for lunch.
Gethin had already seen the hippos and loved the Zoo.
Sadly by then Tal was so tired Daddy and Grandad took him home for a nap.Thank goodness the zoo is free so he can come another day to enjoy it.
We stayed with Gethin as he loved the Train.
By riding the train round the zoo he got to quickly see most of the animals and as I said we will go back when Tal is a bit better.
Tal had a good sleep and played with the toy train set instead.
We have been given a contact with a family here whose son had the same operation with Dr Park years ago.We hope to meet up to compare notes and see how their son has progressed.
Early start tomorrow and hope for a more successful session at the hospital.
