Milestones

Three weeks ago, Robb brushed his teeth while standing at a sink for the first time. At that time, his "standing tolerance" was about three minutes.

Now he is able to stand for over forty five minutes.

He went down the the shops on Lakeshore Avenue, and walked using his cane (under supervision of Marcella, his occupational therapist.) He says that there still isn't enough time to cross the street.

We're working toward finding ways for Robb to be independant and unsupervised. Building strength and balance and figuring out ways of arranging our apartment so that he can do things for himself are all part of this.

Right now, Robb is working with Doreen, his physical therapist. I need to go cook dinner.
