Never giving up

Journey to health….a reflection

22nd January 2016

When pictures of Veronika pop up in memories….I usually stop and realise just how far my girl has come.

When the 2 pictures in the top row came up yesterday one of the things I remembered was how irritated and red Veronika skin was when she was little….we have worked so hard with Veronika’s dietitian over the years figuring out what Veronika is sensitive to….if her skin is red and irritated on the outside one can only imagine how her gut health is on the inside.

Tonight as I was reflecting on the journey with her food sensitivities I look at how healthy Veronika’s skin is now compared to when these photos were taken.

It’s hard work making sure Veronika’s diet is free of the things she reacts to, but when I look at these photos and see how her skin glows and is so healthy it’s worth the effort 💖

On Sunday Veronika and I went for a walk after bowling....the day she walked 230 meters 👍

I was walking along just behind Veronika looking at her gait(the way she walks). Veronika didn’t have her second skin on, her body posture support suit because it was drying after being washed.

That was the moment I realised how much of a difference her second skin makes to her gait/walking.

I filmed Veronika for a while to show her physio(and the rest of Veronika’s team) next time we see him.

Yesterday we went for a wander after speech therapy, and Veronika had her second skin on.

This video has Veronika walking on Sunday at the beginning without her suit, and then with the suit Monday.

The video doesn’t do it justice how much smoother Veronika’s gait/walking is in her second skin....but hopefully you get a bit of the picture how this supports Veronika and the functional impact it’s having on Veronika.
