March 4, 2012 ~ 11 Months! Can you believe it?

So we are doing good and life is keeping us busy (This is why I haven‘t posted in a while.) Sam is doing well. She now has a stander that is on loan through her PT and she loves it! She still isn't mobile but she really wants to be. She does a great job of sitting up unassisted however you can't go far because if she gets herself scared she starts to go stiff and ends up falling over. I took two steps away from her the other day to get a toy and she fell over. I felt horrible! She has a hard time changing postions herself. She does try her best when laying down to get in a sitting position but she is not quite there yet. They have told us not to keep her in her exersaucer for long periods of time because it actually will cause her legs to stay stiff. The stander allows the her weight to be distributed differently where she can start to build muscle and strength in her legs to help her eventually stand on her own. She loves it! The picture is below. She has an MRI and Neurosurgery visit on the 15th of this month which will be to check to see if the cyst has changed. We are just praying for a smooth visit. So thankful for the past 11 months. Every time I look at my sweet girls face I am reminded of just how amazing our God is! Will post again after her MRI.
