If you remember, months ago Mason had tendon surgeries for his right hip and heel. Two months of casts and broken bones from those casts later he was finally able to move around again, only to discover he had lost both strength and ability. The cut tendons in his hip have affected his ability to move that hip/leg. The lost strength in combination meant my sweet boy could no longer climb up steps, transfer into and out of his wheelchair, or do anything using similar muscle work. We have done weekly physical therapy with a new PT and developed some exercise play routines here at home with the therapist. Mason's hard work is paying off!
I know in my head this growing independence is a good thing. I cheer him on. He's learning to do things we want him to do. I just wish he were in a padded suit while attempting them!
