Day One of Lokomot:
Walked 30 minutes on the treadmill
Total of 575 m (which is 1887 feet or .357 of a mile)
Ms. Terri said that most kids only go 15 minutes at the beginning because they get to tired, and through the next 8 weeks work up the the 45 minute walk.
She thinks Daniel will be at 45 minutes by his third session (Friday)
He got to watch a video as he was walking along!
Ms. Terri says most kiddos are crying when they are getting hooked up to the big robot. Daniel cried when we stopped! He wanted more. I have to say it truly is an amazing machine.
Although the picture is a little blurry, look at how tall he is standing up! When we first got him all hooked up he kept looking down at his feet to see them moving. We had to put a mirror in front of him so he could watch himself. He was torn between watching the video and the cute kid in the mirror!
How great is that?!?!
We still don't have insurance approval. We're still fighting for that. But how can we NOT do it?! Of course when we're living in a giant cardboard box...I hope there is enough room for him to walk around! ;)
