And Therapy Begins

Monday, September 24, 2012

A little afternoon swim to begin Sabriya's therapy. Dr. Karlen had given us instructions to start her swimming as soon as her scar turned pink. He told us that swimming, because it's a low impact exercise, would help to improve her flexibility, strength and circulation.  And because 90% of her body is buoyant when in the water, there wouldn't be any stress on her joints. The buoyancy of the water supports her joints while encouraging a full and free range of movement.  Well pink it is and so we took her out to see what she could do. Not bad for her first try especially considering she hasn't used her leg in five whole weeks.

and look who came out to join Sabriya and PaPa...

isn't this the sweetest kiss EVER!
