What a day! Going out for a walk with one of Pádraig’s friends in the morning was really nice. But going out for a swim with Pádraig this afternoon was just pure magic.

Good friends had arranged the pool where we used top class equipment to lift Pádraig into the really nice, warm water for about half an hour.

The champ was back in his element:) After more almost three years and a half. He really really so enjoyed this. Floating and relaxing, moving his legs, stretching his arms, moving from one end of the pool to the other almost weightless.

I went into the water with him to support an hold him. Three of his former swimming teachers and coaches were at the pool side calling out instructions, almost like the old days.

It was pure fun and delight.
