Today she still complained of pain in her pins and of cold symptoms. At therapy she did okay, but had a really tight leg. She had a hard time bending her knee past eighty degrees, but eventually did get it to ninety degrees. Her goal was ninety one, but she wasn't able to get it today. Melissa said that muscles tighten after a fall and make it harder to stretch (not what we need right now). She said that she'll email Dr.Nelson to get his input, and we'll keep an eye on her then if we need to we'll drop down to three turns a day (this will add a couple of days to our lengthening time). She suggested two new stretches/exercises to do at home and suggested we keep up with the massages. I made sure to do all the home work and to massage Amaya's thigh three times today. Amaya is such a good sport about doing her physical therapy homework. Even though she's tired, worn out and has already done her therapy, she still does quite a bit at home (a twenty-forty five minute stretching session, squats each time she washes her hands, bends and lunges throughout the day, etc.). She really is amazing. although she's tempted to, she hasn't given up.
Here's Amaya stepping over blocks. The higher ones were tough.
Here's her walking back. She did this several times today.
Next Kim had her bend her knees and then sit on the trampoline. She had some wobbly ankles, but was bale to do it several items.
Kim was massaging Amaya's thigh while across the room Lidie was busy laughing hysterically on the floor by herself (not sure why), that's why Melissa was laughing.
