Work, work, work, heal, heal, heal. Rehab hospital next stop.

Aliza is doing some kickin’ healing these days. On Friday, she was eager to show us how she could swing her legs off her bed and stand up on her own. Today, wearing her shiny new white helmet, we went for a short walk as she held on to both my shoulders. She is anxious to work the muscles in her body and to dig down deep to find all those words that are still somewhat elusive. This morning, after a very good session, she asked the speech therapist if she had any books or homework assignments for her to do doing the course of the day. Work, work, work, that’s our Shapiro. Tomorrow she will move to a rehab hospital where she will be on a much more regular schedule of healing therapies. She is on her way, guys!
