Tuesday our last day in cast

Tuesday our big day. The cast came off. It's exciting and fearful to me to see what he does. Left hand is definitely strong, has some amazing skills. I call it a gold mine. It has so much potential. What I have to keep in mind that we have to undo many years of patterns using mainly the right side and that his brain is still telling his left side "you can't do it" or "you are not strong enough". It will take lots of verbal coaching and helping him to motor plan the different actions. It is a learning curve. I learned so incredibly much during this month. I feel equipped but it will take tremendous dedication and patience. It is neat to see many goals accomplished and all coming together
