On Friday, Ian had another first. One of the therapists wanted to get him in the water, so Mary and Larissa took him to a pool specially designed for therapy where he met the therapist. She and a couple of others began the session by standing him up and "walking him"....outside the pool! Each of them put his arm around them and walked him upstairs in the gym. Then, once in the pool downstairs (about up to his chest) they put water noodles under his arms, and he walked around the pool that way with the assistance of the therapist and floated on his back as well. After a while, Larissa couldn't stand it any more and found a bathing suit and some shorts and jumped in the water with him. He had a very content expression the whole time he was doing it and said he was glad he got in the pool. We don't know yet if he will continue with this therapy.
Thank you for your continual prayers!
