I want to tell everyone thanks for your interest in my blogpage and for the many people who have left questions and comments for me. I always feel so happy to read them.
I have been working with a physical therapist who has fixed my gait trainer, so I feel free when I walk in it. The adjustments she made to my gait trainer have made my me feel so light and able to move easily. I walk really fast now. I was so restricted before because it was too many straps on me. Now I just have it around my chest and I can walk for 20 minutes without feeling really tired. It is a great thing for my spirits to be able to move on my own. I have someone assisting me, but I can take my own steps and I love it! I have had many people at Boutwell’s Landing, where I go to walk, become friends of mine. They are so kind and say encouraging things to me. I feel so happy when I am walking there.
I wish everyone peace this Christmas season. It has been a year of great struggles for me, but I feel great now, and I am doing whatever I can to stay that way. I know what it feels like to have rest in my heart and my body. I have that today. I am so glad for it. I know that many of us living with Rett Syndrome are really struggling everyday. I pray for you. I pray for hope in your heart. I pray that when you wake up today, you feel rest.
