Today is a good day! Derick is doing so well and improving daily! 🙂 Derick can now shower unassisted with the rails for support and using his shower chair (shower rails and chair donated by Hara). We have bought rails for the stairs to give Derick more support when using the stairs. Going up the stairs is working out fine. With practice he will eventually manage going down the stairs without help. The stairs are very steep. A big thank you to Hara for arranging the installation of the railings for us. 🙂🙏
Derick had his 11th physiotherapy session. Today’s focus was on dynamic standing and balance training. He can now stand up unaided from a sitting position. He is continuing to make excellent progress. Khun Tai has also started the process of helping Derick to learn to climb stairs again.
Derick's right arm is damaged, we are hoping that with therapy and time it will improve. At this stage it is too early to say what the prognosis will be. However his left arm is strong and fully functional.
Our aim is to have Derick walking unassisted with his cane and eventually climbing stairs in the next few therapy sessions.
Once again thank you to all who are involved in his recovery (you know who you are) 😊
