Update on Grace

I know, I know...I've been busy!! I've been meaning to update everyone on Grace since the surgery but we have been on the go. Grace is doing PT twice a week and special needs yoga 3 times a week. She has been working really hard to build up those muscles that had been covered by the spastic tone until the PERCS. I still wasn't sure the first week afterwards that we had done the right thing by going through with the procedure, but I can say now...we DID the right thing. Well, I guess we won't really know for awhile but right now she seems to be getting stronger and stronger. She sits better unassisted and cruises around so much easier because she doesn't fight the tone making her legs cross.   She is so incredibly motivated to move, move, move.  She is VERY close to getting into sitting position on her own and standing unassisted.  We will just keep working.  Check out the videos below.  She gets her casts off on Tuesday.

Amazing!!! Great improvement. And your Mack has been looking so wise and mature in photos lately (is that reality? lol) Beautiful family all around.

So glad you posted an update; I've been wondering how things were going. She looks great, Jacolyn! Her long sitting while throwing the ball is especially impressive: I know how hard that is! I love her cute little voice, too and how she asks about Sophie and Mack's pictures. Hannah is always asking about Isabelle as well (and vice versa).

Keep up the great work Grace AND Mommy!

Way to Grace. Once she gets her casts off she will be flying around.
I know it was a hard decision for you but it looks like it has paid off and she will continue to improve.

I cried and I cried and I cried and then I cried - happy tears of course! I'm constantly amazed at how wonderful Grace is doing and I'm so proud of you Jacolyn. Hugs and love to all of you, Sheridan, Tyler & Parker xxxooo
