January 11, 2017: Lots of progress at PT & in the gym

The swelling has steadily improved since she began walking in the boot. The left foot is still a bit bigger than the right but it is getting much closer to normal.

January has been a busy month with lots of physical therapy, doctors visits and gymnastics practice.

Mia Rose has gotten most of her skills back on bars and is focused on trying to be ready to compete bars in February. VIDEO  In addition to practice where she does bars plus tons of conditioning, she does PT once a week with our fantastic PT who is very well versed in gymnastics,  home exercises prescribed by her PT daily, another hour of PT once a week with a trainer and lifts weights several days a week with me. She is really determined to be even stronger than she was before when she is cleared to get back to gymnastics fully.

She saw the surgeon on January 11th and he took more x-rays, which looked good. He also moved her foot around and pushed on the arch a bunch, which happily didn’t hurt her at all. He seemed satisfied with her progress and took molds for custom orthotics for her sneakers at that visit as well. We will be traveling on February 9th and the goal is to have her comfortably walking in her sneakers before then.
