ActiveCycle, Figit Friend and MaW
Wow! February is almost over, and the excitement never stops! My parental units keep looking for solutions for me, and thanks to other families they came upon the ActivCycle. This little thinguie is automatic and should make my legs rotate as if I were riding a bike! All at a slower pace, of course. What should be the benefits? Basically this is almost basic training for the big gun: the MotoMed. The benefits of such a physical therapy machine are many:Greater flexibility of muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints; Improved circulation, digestion and metabolism; Reduced fluid retention, swelling and cramping; Lower blood pressure; Reduced osteoporosis; and self confidence, improve mental, health and reduce pain. But enough with the PT lesson, on with the show!
So far this has been the second main excitement of this week. Mommy and Daddy are looking for other PT options: Aquatic therapy (formal PT in the pool, something we kinda did during Summer in my apartment's inflatable pool... It is a pity that we can't keep the pool filled all year long... We need the living room for other stuff) and Hippo Therapy (therapy using specially trained horses). It is all very exciting, so I am crossing fingers so one or both of these therapies can come true!
tutorial so I could actually play with it. Next on her to-do list is a creating a pageset so my "voice" from my communication device can give commands to Willa (I think she did a prototype, but my Tobii is on repair so I'll have to wait a bit to try that). This is so cool! Here's a video of me playing with Willa using my 2grams switch:
Ending the week of excitement, Mommy re-submitted the form for Make a Wish, so I should expect their contact soon. I'm glad Mommy did that, her first form got lost in cyberspace. I can't wait for what can come true! Gotta start thinking hard for a big wish!
GOD: Thanks for keeping me healthy, and for everything You bring me. Thanks for helping my friends, for allowing so much healing all around me! Allow me to keep on being an instrument of Your Peace and of Your Love. Always in your hands, always grateful, always believing. Amen.
