Day 206 and holding a sandwich

Colin has been working really hard on moving his thumb on his left hand. He is sometimes able to make it grip things like strawberries and biltong.

It is because of his diligent work, and sweat and tears every day with his physio that he is able to regain strength when he has a flicker of movement. The Physios and OTs are brilliant and give him amended exercises every week, specially if he shows any improvement or a flicker of something new.

He has been working hard gripping his “therapy strawberries” and today I left his sandwich for him. He was able to pick up and eat each of the 4 halves of his sarmie today. He also had a win yesterday when he was able to put his spoon with strap on by himself so he could eat ice cream.

There are no words for my joy.
