Therapy

Eric made great strides in PT/OT today. He had fun playing games with Mika, his occupational therapist. In PT, Kim was amazed at his new-found endurance. He walked on the treadmill today for 17 minutes (in two stints) and pedaled 10 minutes on the recumbant bike. All the while keeping his heart rate lower and his blood oxygen level higher. Eric's getting stronger every day.

Post-PT Sonic snack . . . chicken club toaster AND fries with a strawberry grape Dr. Pepper.

Eric most of what I was going to say is in the first comment. I am judging your progress by what you have for a snack. It sounds more like a full-blown meal. I applaud you hard work and endurance. Mom and the rest of the family must be so proud of your accomplishments. One day you will be out riding bikes together again.

love, bev
