Wednesday March 8

Lots of therapy today, G also got fitted with a support for his left arm, it gets heavy since his muscles aren’t providing support. This is G using a walker for the first time, a person on each side helping his feet/legs. He has incredible strength in his right arm, and his right leg is regaining a lot of its strength, he can practically support himself with his right side. His feet wanted to get tangled up, but I cried seeing him walk. 

He has some clonus ( https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK299194/ )which is a rhythmic jerking of his muscle when his foot is flexed, I think it gets frustrating, but there are a couple of things to make it stop. This machine is used to strengthen his legs and to help stretch his achilles.
