First Report from Mara Holtgrave after Dolphin Therapy on 03.06.2010
Best wishes from, at long last, sunny Münster. We arrived back safely but are missing you all a lot!!
Our first surprise was at night in Düsseldorf airport, waiting for the shuttle bus, when Mara said : “When is our Dolmuc coming?” – we had only driven twice with the Dolmuc and hadn’t used the word much! 😉
Progress in speech is the main thing that friends notice. She also appears more open and self confident. Going to the toilet worked perfectly whilst on holiday and also at home – even so that she went on her own – the last couple of days there have been a few hiccups but then she has experienced a lot of new things recently. If she gets bitchy or if she doesn’t want to walk then we pretend to phone Daisy – that helps most times 🙂
Our riding therapist here reports that her leg and torso muscles have definitely improved.
Tomorrow we have our first appointment with our Physiotherapist, who also does Cranio. She is also expectant to see what developments Mara has to offer – we hope that she can also take the time to give us some feedback.
We shall at any rate send further reports and we would be happy to hear from you too!!
Best wishes to everyone!!!
MARA, Peter and Nina
