Let's Get Physical!

Just thought I would share what Marissa's Tuesday morning work out looks like:


She is doing really great in Physical Therapy. She has so much fun while working with D, as you can obviously see, that it doesn't even seem like work to her! She is no longer popping her hip, or only does it so infrequently that it is no longer an issue, which is what she started back in PT for in the first place. So that is awesome! We have discovered some other issues she needs to work on, so PT will continue for her indefinitely. I am confident she will work past them with no problems.

I just love how she counts. It is so stinkin' cute, don't you think?

In unrelated news, Marissa is feeling so much better. Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes. She is pretty much back to 100% now, not even needing O2 when she is sleeping. I have no idea what she was sick with or where she got it but HOORAY for her being all better!

Also, more good news: She gets her cast off Thursday! YAY! I am so looking forward to it being gone. She has been such a trooper about it, only acting like it itches and bothers her a couple of times.

Thanks for checking in!

It's great that she doesn't think of PT as being "work"...to her it looks like it's just play...that is wonderful. And she does so well with D. Keep up the good work Rissa Roo. And I bet she'll be REALLY happy when the cast comes off!
Love,
Nana & PaPa
P.S. The counting is FABULOUS...especially when she knows inside/outside voice and how to whisper..that...is....AWESOME!!

Zeyda and I are now back in the US where email takes seconds instead of hours. Watching that video made for 4 very wet eyes. They were accompanied by 2 great big smiles. Hearing her count in controlled voices is great.

We love you all lots and thank you for the video and all the updates. We have kept up whenever we could and shared everything with our new ship friends.

Talk to you soon, Bubby and Zeyda
