Katy can walk… in water

June 3, 2010

I have felt horrible the last couple of days and am about of gas tonight as well; but I wanted to share this video I just finished of Katy at her aqua therapy. (With a few clips of her talking with her sister on the way as well!

Aqua Therapy may be Katy’s favorite thing of all to do. Amanda (her therapist) has worked with her since Katy was about two, I believe. In that time period, she has made incredible strides. Take a look at the video below and make sure you watch to the end. That’s where the really important one is – Katy can indeed walk when she’s supported by the water. It’s a truly incredible sight for Shel and I to see. Also, you’ll notice Amanda has brought music into her therapy as well. ALL of Katy’s teachers and therapists have done this now.

Thanks for everybody’s continued support!

I see her work toward this every week, but here I am crying watching it on video! I could not be more proud of all the progress Katy has made and will continue to make!

Amanda- Thank you for all you’ve done for our little girl. We owe so much to you and all the time you’ve put in with her, especially your ability to turn something she loves – the water – into something that can physically help her long term. We’re lucky to have you!
