This right here…it’s the one movement that is part of his home programming that he actually enjoys.
It’s called the Angel, but he calls it “Angels in the snow”. It’s the only one that I don’t have to correct his breathing, or help him with it to get his body movements going the right direction. I do the deep breathing right along with him, mostly for my own sanity.
Stepping back and realizing that this isn’t as easy for him as it is for me, has been a great adjustment. All his exercises in the home program are things I’m able to just do, with very little effort, but for him it takes great effort to overcome those primal reflexes that we are trying to work out so that he can better control his body and overall self awareness. This is just as much a learning moment for me as it is for him.
Day by day, we are making tiny bits of progress, and I am so excited to see where he will be in a few months!
