March of Dimes

It has been an eventful year. Hunter has been working hard to walk after surgery. After being told that he would never walk with canes, Hunter decided to prove them wrong. Hunter had two therapist; One therapist at the hospital, the other at his school. I wasn't fond of his hospital therapist because she always projected a lot of negativity towards Hunter. Needless to say, she is not his therapist anymore. However, his school therapist always believes in Hunter and never gives up on him. She is Heaven sent. Two days after his hospital therapist told me he would not walk with canes, his school therapist sent me this video of Hunter.

After I approached the hospital therapist with this video, she told me that Hunter "may" walk with canes, but would never be able to walk around a store. The next video, Hunter walked the entire grocery store with me for the first time.

He is doing fabulous and every day is showing improvement. He is walking around the house unassisted. He can take a good 10 steps without canes. We are getting there!

With that said...

For the first time ever, Hunter will be walking in the March for Babies. I hope you can join or donate to Team Hunter:

Thank you for sharing, it's been a while since I have looked in and see how things are going. Life has been a little crazy. Hunter is doing awesome, he has come so far!!! You are doing a great job ensuring that he gets what he needs to live as independent as possible.
