Step by Step
Posted by Oli on Thursday 13th December, 2007
Oli’s walked up and down a flight of stairs!!!! I’m not with him today and have no-one around to jump up and down with and scream in a happy girly way! I am so proud of him!
He’s just called me and he walked to the foot of the stairs with the physio which is plenty far enough. He did the first five steps and went to try the next eight. He did the eight and figured he’d got that far and so should go for the final 5. After a little break he walked all the way down, then back to his room AND then back to the bathrooms for a shower. This is just fab, he has done so well today. He said it was a lot harder than he thought it would be but is really proud of himself for achieving it. I’m a just a big bubble of happiness right now and I’m so glad I can share it with you all!
There is absolutely no way he could have done all of that three weeks ago, he is already leaps and bounds ahead of the poorly guy who was half looking forward to/half dreading the approaching Christmas. No matter what happens or where we are, Christmas is going to be such a celebration of new life.
Have a great day x
