Jian walked 50 feet inside our home today in 80 seconds.  She reached out and steadied herself only 4 times on the wall and furniture!

Week One is Complete

On : 31 May, 2014 | Category : 2014

Jian’s therapists couldn’t be more pleased with her participation and hard work.  She admits that she is working very hard and is very tired, but has not complained once about her muscles being sore, which I suspect that they are.  It is obvious to watch God working through Jian’s therapist.  When we arrived yesterday, he […]

Second Day Went Great As Well!

On : 28 May, 2014 | Category : 2014

Jian woke up smiling and said, “I’m so glad we get to go back today.  It is so fun there.  I want to go every day!”  When we actually got there, she decided to test the 2 therapists a little bit.  They asked her to walk back to the treatment room using her cane and […]

Improvement at The Red Barn

Last Thursday was Jian’s last horse therapy lesson. She will take a break over the summer due to the extreme heat and then hopefully she will want to do another 10 week series this Fall.  When she started a few months ago, the instructor would basically have to pick her up and put her on […]

Award of Courage

Today is the last day of first grade for Jian.  I cannot believe an entire school year has come and gone.  I will never forget the first day I took her to school and how frail and terrified she was.  Looking at her today, she does not seem like the same person.  The past week […]

She’s My Inspiration!

We have had quite an eventful week!  Earlier this week, the video story that CrossFit headquarters filmed a couple of months ago was released.  I was very impressed by their work and thought the video turned out great.  (I added the youtube link under Jian’s Videos tab.)  It was nice to read some of the comments […]
