A Couple of Hints
Many of you have tried to guess what today brings for our Ashley and although they were good guesses no one has gotten it right just yet. I thought I would let you know:
We opted not to get a wheel chair for her because we believe she is going to walk one day, and emotionally none of us were ready for this one. At this time she has a medical stroller that is basically a wheel chair without the large wheels on the back. We are still adjusting to its new look, but have had it for a few months now.
She is not riding horses today. That is scheduled for tomorrow morning(if the rain lets up). I will post photos of that too, but be prepared for her to look ridiculous in long pants, long sleeves, and a bicycle helmet(because her riding helmet has not been ordered yet) in Texas in the month of September! It is going to be hot, hot, hot, but we do not want her skin to make contact with the horse for immunity issues because we aren't sure if the horses may carry something she might not be able to hold up to. She will also be sitting on the horse with a blanket acting as a barrier between her and the horse. Trust me, I know she will look silly, but its not the look we are going for its the therapy.
She is not being fitted for leg braces either. We already have a set of leg immobilizers that we use for independent standing and to straighten out her legs while she sleeps.
All of those were very good guesses, but keep trying. Its something else.
Hope your having a great day.
