Miss Ada walking with new rolling cane. Still need a helping hand but she likes it, I think. We will order one for her. It should be fun for her to walk around the house. Her PT and I came up with the plan to bribe Ada with Reese's pieces for each lap she walk, it did not work. Ha...ha.

Then we went outside for a bike ride. She still try to figure it out, but did paddle around the parking lot a few time. There is a handle to control the front wheel. A few adjustments need to be made before it works for Ada.

After all the hard work, we stopped for lunch at McDonald. We sat in the dinning room and Miss Ada ate a handful of French Fries. We break it into small pieces, but I am glad she wants something else beside Cheerio.
Oh, last nite, Rachael and Stacy took Ada to the movie. We thought watching "Jackass" would be fun enough to keep Ada in her seat for an hour and a half, but she was done after an hour. We will try next Tuesday, $5 movie pass, may be they can watch the second half of the movie.
We are trying to take her out more. We plan to visit the zoo this Friday, they will let the caregiver in free with disable person. Children Museum, on the other hand, wants me to buy Family Plus membership. Well, there are many other places we can visit.

the bike--genius! Does she seem to enjoy it.. or is it too new and weird right now?

Thanks for the update! How awesome that she's got wheels (not just the bike--the cane!)

The bike is weird and new right now, she still try to figure it out. The cane with 4 wheels, how genius! I love it. We will get her the cane for now.

As always, thank you for the update. Ada looks wonderful! So happy to hear about her progress. A whole hour of the movie Jackass is way more than I could do. :) Go Ada!

Hi Ponsawani and Ada,

I love the cane with wheels and her beautiful photo...She looks amazingly happy and great!!!!!!! The bike idea is a great exercise for her, definitely. Even though she is serious in this photo her face looks as gorgeous as always. The McDonald photo shows her beautiful smile and I love it. I just want to hug her! Eating McDonald fries...not the most healthy food (I am not a McDonald fan...see the documentary "Super Size it" and you will never again eat a McDonald burger or fries Ha! Ha! Just kidding...), but I am glad she ate another type of food, it is a start! Go Ada! The sky is the limit!!!! I can't wait for her therapist to try more exercises! Love and hugs, F

Ada, way to go girl!

I am always impressed of Ponsawan's creativity and unlimited services. You certainly did not leave any stones unturned.

Keep warm. The cold wind is blowing. I hope you have a pleasant winter up north.
