Still getting stronger...
And so much taller...
Max lost weight again with this hospital stay. He also lost some of his strength. So, I was wondering how he would do with his therapies as he got back into them.
Last week, he just barely made it through each therapy before he was ready for a rest. Today, not only did he make it through therapy, but he told me before hand that he wanted to stand up in his stander.
I expected that we would get his AFO's (therapy supports for his feet) on, and he'd be exhausted. But, not at all the case. We got him in his stander, and there he stood for 20 minutes. He wanted to stand longer, but his body was too tired, and he couldn't hold his head up on his own easily. When I told him I was going to sit him down since he was so tired, he gave me the sign for 'more' and started crying.
I guess we'll have to let him stand more and more...to keep getting STRONGER!
