Free at Last

ski

Max hit a huge milestone today – he went skiing!! Max raced Sam down the mountain several times (and won every time).
He might have looked to people like just another skier. What they couldn’t see under his ski clothes is Max’s lion heart, his persistence in physical therapy and wearing his braces and cast faithfully for 4 months.
Skiing again has been his goal for months. It’s deeply meaningful because it represents success in gaining full range of motion!
As we soared down the slopes today, unfettered by contractures or casts, I wanted to cry out,
“Free at Last,
Free at Last,
Thank God Almighty,
We’re free at last!”
