Aidan jumps independently in water!

Aidan had a bit of a setback last summer, he fractured his tibia.  It wasn’t a full fracture, he just a couple of small chips off the bone but its still called a fracture.  He couldn’t weight bear and at first, recovery was slow.  We went back to the pool and he immediately improved.   We have been going to the poo all winter with good results.  Here is a short video clip showing him jumping  up independently in the pool.

Aidan’s documentary – now available on youtube

I can’t believe a year has gone by since I updated Aidan’s website.  It has been a very busy year for our family.  Carina started school last April and she is loving it.  In the summer of 2016, I also started school — studying to become a Spiral Praxis practitioner.  Spiral Praxis is a new paradigm in the field of somatics and its the therapy Aidan has been doing for the last few years.  Its a set of techniques designed to accelerate learning.  The techniques can be used on anything from yoga to climbing to learning music.  A really amazing tool set that can literally change lives.  Check it out.

Well it finally snowed!  Hurray!

Aidan got to try out his new sled.  We tested it on a small hill where a bunch of kids were sledding.  Aidan had a blast! Aidan sledding 2 Aidan sledding

Blowing bubbles at the Science Centre

We went to the Science Centre on the weekend.  They had a big tank of bubbles there.  Very fun!  Aidan loves the Science Centre.  Its big and very accessible.  They have the most wheelchair accessible washrooms I’ve seen anywhere.  He likes to drive his chair around and choose his own activities.  At the Science Centre, he can do so just like any other child.

In his therapy, Aidan is now walking 1/4 of a mile – with support.  They are walking him every session now to build his endurance.  Very exciting stuff.20160117 bubbles
