"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

Post-op, week 3!!

Here we are, three weeks post op! Alina is ready to go home, and will be busting out of here on Friday!!
It will be hard to leave, though we are so ready! We've made some great friends here, and hope to keep in touch! I have lots of great videos and pictures, unfortunately blogger won't let me upload them from my phone.

So far she's doing perfectly! She's able to roll, side and tailor sit, short sit on a bench or chair, dress/undress, walk with help, crawl, knee walk and half kneel to stand with support!! She says her legs feel "wiggly", which we've assumed is because the spasticity is gone, she feels "normal" but to her is very different.

We are excited to watch and help her progress from here. She's certainly amazes us every day.
