Little daredevil!

It sounds unsafe...and it is...BUT parents of stroke survivors (and some others of you) know how BIG this is.

Kath can walk up the slide, using the elephant walk; she walks and pulls herself all the way to the top of our rather steep slide incline.

WOW! I love the summer growth spurts! The strength that shows in her arms and legs and the balance is pretty big!

All this is even more exciting because Kath is overcoming weakness and paralysis on her right side as well as balance and vision issues all related to the stroke she survived in utero.

  4. Thank you for sharing your daughter's story. This really help me and gives me motivation, because I myself is a first-time mom of my daughter Angel who had neonatal stroke during birth.
