Tomorrow is our final day on the road. Be sure to tune in Saturday for footage from Friday, as well as Elijah's amazing appearance at Mini-Laps!
1. WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS (parts 1 & 2): Before the afternoon session, Granna treated both Ramirez boys to new Red Sox ballcaps, and Eli wanted to keep his on all day. As we entered the building, she was singing "We Are The Champions" by Queen, partly because the word "CHAMPIONS" was emblazoned across her Red Sox t-shirt. Watch our final "walk-walk" of the day and see if you don't agree we've found our champion for all time.
2. STRENGTH TRAINING: Time to teach Elijah how to keep his upper torso muscles strong when he's pushing his walker forward. Good thing we have a few of these exercise balls at home.
3. ELIJAH-MOTIVE: Let's finish the day with Elijah riding a robot pony. I kid you not, this thing is called the iGallop. And you thought your iPad had features. Last but not least is a bit of screaming, as we complete the fitting for Eli in his walker. The amazing therapy team at Shriners set aside an entire hour to build FROM SCRATCH the pelvis-and-trunk stabilizer you see here. We love the Shriners!
Tired? Yes. Ready to go home? Yes. WORTH IT? YES.
Seriously, people, tune in Saturday night for Mini-Laps footage. WORTH IT? YES!
