I'm here. Alive and well. As is the rest of the family. But I'm tired. There are more than a handful of things to blog about but frankly, at the end of the day, my brain is too tired to do it. Life with two kiddos is no joke and I'm pooped.
But, I must not wait to share what Oia is so proudly doing these days. Jumping has been an ongoing PT goal which began prior to her surgery. The idea - evenly bending both knees, equally pushing back up with both feet, clearing the ground ever so slightly, and then landing on BOTH feet without falling.
First video is just prior to surgery. These are the first successful attempts at hands free jumping (no adult assistance) on the trampoline. Notice how her right heel remains up and right leg has a constant bend at the knee (too tight to straighten).
Last video, post surgery. Right foot is flat, leg is straighter. With practice, she'll get better at bending both knees and pushing up from a lower crouch but for now, this is pretty darn awesome.
