A "Hurray" Worth Championing

April 12th

Today in physical therapy, with his AFO's and knee immobilizers on, Kenan stood freeform for five whole minutes. I don't know how evident it is, but he is doing most of the work balancing and bearing weight through his back, hips, legs and feet. Mary Kate, his therapist,  is there for head and arm support only. A year ago he could not sustain more than thirty-seconds at a time. An achievement that is testimony to the benefits of his stander regime and the strength his body and mental tolerance have gained from it. 

My beautiful, beautiful boy, to see you standing like that is to simultaneously "see" you running around the house.
