Carly has been having treatment from a specialist physio who is working intensively with her to get more movement into her arms. Her left arm is stronger than her right but working with Michael Newman is helping her to develop more control of her biceps in both arms.
Progress is slow and hard but Carly is working hard – up to 5 hours a day on occasions to really develop any movement that she has.
The Trust Fund money has been paying for this extra physio so its great that all the support that Carly has had is being put to great use.
The hospital is also giving her more physio so as well as her electric pulse treatment she now has sessions on the motorised hand and leg bikes. These help her move her muscles and Carly can add resistance so that she is working those muscles harder.
Carly is now in a wheelchair for part of each day which is still uncomfortable but she is persevering and eventually will have a wheel chair fitted specifically for her needs.
She is resisting the use of an electric wheelchair, as she wants to be able to push herself. This is in conflict with the hospital but in true fighting form Carly is fighting back the way she wants it
200 Club – The 1st 200 Club draw takes place next Tuesday- March 27th currently there are 42 members which means one lucky person will be winning £105
We had hoped that the 200 Club would generate a bigger income to pay for the extra treatment that Carly wants. It is still not too late for you to join and me in April’s draw. Please see the details of how to draw under the 200 Club tab on the main site,
If all 40 members could find another 2 people to join we would be well on our way to the number needed to make this a real success.
