The kids and I took advantage of the wonderful weather this morning. I put John in the stroller, the girls hopped on their bikes and the four of us went on a walk. Even though I'm really out of shape, I kept thinking how lucky I was to be able to walk pushing my baby in a stroller. Plus, I was able to keep an eye on the girls who were riding their bikes ahead of us.
Never in a million years would I have thought that after giving birth, just two weeks ago, I would be capable of walking nearly a mile. After the girls were born, it took me about a month to get back to normal. Even then, I was only able to push their stroller a block before I had to turn around and go back home. To be able to walk 3/4 of mile today was a wonderful gift. I can't wait to take John out again tomorrow and attempt to go the full mile!
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
