Had I not been there, I would have found it hard to believe what happened this morning at what was one of the most energetic, positive, fun-filled, and ambitious therapy sessions so far. We were four, in addition to Pádraig, and at the end of that hour, or hour and a half, we all felt we had done not just a bit of really hard work, but that we had achieved something really significant.
The videos show how Pádraig is able to push his legs (note the plural!) up against a ‘weight’, in addition to gravity, when he is lying on his stomach. This would have been almost unthinkable a year ago. And the videos provide just a glimpse at what happened this morning. We, and especially Pádraig, had every reason to feel such a sense of achievement. It was a very special, really happy morning!

Fantastic . Great to see Pádraig increasong his movement. He was lifting his whole forearm whenever we asked him to last night.
It is fantastic, Andrew. He really is constantly recovering and just needs the right support and help to keep him going. And your visits, those of his friends, are central to that, as important if not more than any therapies he might get. Thank you for that!
