Mariah's latest therapy


I love our PT.  She is willing to try all kinds of things to help Mariah.  This is a device that uses a 9 volt battery to electronically stimulate Mariah's weak muscles and help strengthen them.  She has very weak muscles in her right leg and particularly in her feet.  She can sit and watch TV for 20 minutes and work her foot out.  This sends the signal to her muscle to contract, and with this on, Mariah can lift her toes off the floor and hold it.  Each time she feels the electronic signal starting to raise her toes, she works with it and lifts on her own as well.   

Connected by DROID on Verizon Wireless

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life; but those who make their journey home across time and miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny; and placed among us by God's very own hands. --Kristi Larson
