For the second leg of the treasure hunt, he had to use his bike for the first time. Stephanie couldn't believe that he could do this right away...she was thrilled with how strong his quads are...must have been all that biking in the halls of the the hospital at home.
And he finally got to KEEP his new braces! They required a couple of adjustments so we had to wait until this morning to have them. Pretty cool, eh? I want to take some more pictures of his braces to show you how great they really are. Right now, he can't quite get his feet to a 90 degree angle so the orthotist put a little wedge in each brace that he will shave down as Ben's calves stretch out. Then, hopefully, the wedge can be removed altogether.
There's not much else to write about tonight. OT is still a struggle that will need to be resolved. Luckily, he doesn't have OT again til Friday so I can think on this issue for a few more days.
I have been getting a few questions from commenters and thought it would be a good idea to do a post just answering your questions...so if you have any, fire away and I'll do a post in the next few days just to answer your questions.
