Just for those who don’t know the normal routine.Tal starts and ends each day with “stretches’ a physio routine with mum or dad he has been doing since his diagnosis.Already Claire and Jon can see how much more relaxed he is and how in the last few days his strength is beginning to slowly build.
The week ends do not have Physio sessions at the hospital but we have recommended exercises to try at home.
We went this morning to a Farmers Market at Tower Grove Park.
We enjoyed chatting to an English lady who sold scones and told me how to make my own clotted cream.. wait till I try that it France.
As well as yummy food there was a great duo playing country music.
The atmosphere was wonderful , full of young families enjoying the week-end.
The boys discovered the splash pool, a great opportunity for Tal to try stimulating those feet.
Tal had great time.
Gethin loved it so much he quickly got soaked.
Just look at the fun he had.
He laid in the water, he rolled in the water, he loved it!
He screamed when we finally dragged him off for lunch.Opposite the park was a cafe called the LOCAL HARVEST .. fresh , local grown produce that was really good.The best eat out we have had so far.Worn out we took the boys home for a nap.
Later we got back to exercises for Tal.
We stayed in the back yard and worked with Tal.
We follow the suggestions given by the physios.
Gethin likes to join in.
Tal is set challenges, standing for ten, kicking five times, arching twenty times etc.
We also make up challenges for Gethin , but being good is sometimes too much to ask.
Tal arches his back to let cars run underneath.
We also used up our hosts treadmill, holding Daddy’s hands and at a low-speed he has managed about four minutes.
Tomorrow a bit of fun and more work .It seems a good formula.
