The family was off to Physio before the grandparents and Gethin got up this morning.
As I said yesterday it is a week of goodbye’s and I forgot to feature the good-bye to Nicole.
Two of the physios have seen more of Tal than the others.Today was “MAD MIKE” or as Tal calls him “GOOFY MIKE”.
Here Mike is getting Tal to boof/kick the ball at him.
More walking on the treadmill but a re-try at those stairs and today with much more confidence.
Finally there was the goodbye photo.
Mike is one of the physios coming to the UK with Dr Park next March for the UK re-union and celebration party.Hopefully the family will meet up with him then.
Just an aside about life here.In Europe we stress about chip and pin and card security.Here we have gaily been signing on credit cards for each other , no-one has ever even checked our name or signature.Relaxed but a little worrying.
This afternoon Tal was very tired and had along nap. He woke up keen to do some activities while Gethin played in the paddling pool.
To our amazement Claire convinced him to try walking holding just one of her hands.Jon whipped out his phone and took a short video.He has put it up on Facebook already but it is part of a short film that will go up on the web page blog as soon as he can get sorted.

We are AMAZED, ASTOUNDED, EXCITED and very very PROUD.
Four steps at least with one hand in his pocket.How incredible is that!
I will try to get some photos tomorrow as we are all going into physio as it is the last one and to say goodbye to Blaire.
By tomorrow there should be a link on the Talsgoodfeet site with Vimeo which traces Tal’s progress here.Settle down with a box of hankies.
