we welcome the month of March!
With any luck this month will roll out like a lamb!
Daylight savings on the 13th and the first day of SPRING on the 21st!
Her physical therapist got her up and moving down that long hallway you see behind her. She didn't walk "conventionally" using the crutches - she picked up her leg by the pins/ring coming out of her hip to pull her foot forward, set it down and move the other foot and crutches up to take a step. This turned out not to be the best idea as you can imagine, it irritated the pin holes something fierce and she will no longer do that to move on the crutches. She will still get up and stand a few times a day to get the blood pumping and stretch though.
Also of note we got her on the scale and found that all her hardware weighs right about 9 lbs!
She was growling at me to hurry up and take the picture here.
I've probably said it before, but I'm going to say it again - we have absolutely LOVED having my Mother here. Sad to say she will be leaving the end of this coming week to go back home to OK, where we are told the dogwood trees are blooming, new grass is growing and folks there are enjoying wonderfully mild temps of 70*!
Here is a shot of the pants I've worked out for Chyann. After numerous attempts of actually making a whole pair of pants this is what works best for her.
Buy a pair of incredibly cheap sweat pants - I got hers on the 50% off rack at Wally's so they were only 3 bucks!
Cut the outside seam on the leg you need to insert the pocket.
Make a pocket with leftover cute scrap material.
Sew the pocket on and add Velcro up and down the leg to close it up.
Easy as pie!
Colton's band had that show in the cities at The Garage on Friday too.
He said by far they were the best band there!
