Four months on, and Jennie today took her first tentative steps. Three steps forward with lots of huffing and puffing and then 3 steps back with no huffing and puffing, the seat behind her acting as a magnet!

Real progress is now being made with Jennie able to swallow fluids, eat soft food and transfer on a banana board from her bed into a wheelchair.

Still a long way to go as her left arm remains very weak and little grip with either hand. Having said this she has mastered the art of turning the pages of her magazine collection with her good right hand and is reading again and changing channels on the TV in her room.

Another milestone!
