Homeward bound

Published October 20, 2013 by Caitlin Rose

So we were sitting in the foyer at the hotel waiting for the taxi to take us to the airport and suddenly Caitlin just went for it. She walked at least 40 steps! She’s been so frightened to do it & we were feelin a little exasperated as we knew she could do it. Dr Park predicted she would walk before we returned home and he was right!
Caitlin now needs to build strength and confidence so that she can walk independently in all environments and have the stamina to cope with a full school day. This is where her UK physiotherapists come in. Judith & Lucy are great with Caitlin & have supported us in our quest to help Caitlin have a better future. We feel rather lucky about that as some families have not been supported by their healthcare teams. Caring for a physically disabled child is hard work and families need support and guidance.
Caitlin was very pleased with herself and showed off her walking to the ladies working at the front desk. I am so happy now that I’ve seen her so this. Irwin knew she would do it once we stopped putting pressure in her & it seems he was right. Grrrrr! 🙂
