I CANNOT BELIEVE IT!!! I don't even know how to start this post! I'm sure I am not even going to be able to say it the way I want to.
Tonight Evan and I were waiting for an hour and a half to get our flu shots. We were sitting on the kid size chairs watching Sesame Street and Evan wanted to stand. I was helping to support his weight so that he could stand. I was looking the other direction, wondering what number they were calling, and I hear Evan say "look Mama ... stand". I look down and CANNOT believe my eyes. Evan had slid himself off the chair and while leaning on the chair for support was standing all by himself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I think this has happened as a result of a couple different things. When we started the medicine in June Evan did get some strength back. Evan received his leg braces a couple of weeks ago. I think that wearing the leg braces has helped train his legs to hold a little bit more weight without collapsing. Obviously we need to be right there, as his legs will give out at any moment. This is just so amazing!
We came home and promptly showed Daddy our new ability. We couldn't be happier!
