Gwendolyn has been practicing and practicing and practicing in her power chair and she's starting to really get the hang of it. She loves it -- and that's absolutely the most important thing. Her face beams when she is in her chair and she loves "finding" Daddy and Mommy and Gramma. Watching her...

November 03, 2009 by Bill Strong

Over the last month we've been prepping Gwendolyn and getting her comfortable with her hot pink demo power chair at one of her therapy sessions every week. She's taken baby steps, as usual, warming up to the idea at first and slowly making her own decision when she's ready to take the next step.

Snuggle singing with Mommy

February 26, 2009 by Bill Strong

Recently, Gwendolyn has been tolerating being elevated more often, on and off bi-pap, and we've been finding more creative ways to try and encourage her to do so. I just love this picture of Gwendolyn in Mommy's arms having a good snuggle singing session right before Gwendolyn's bedtime.

watching Handy Manny, one of her favorite cartoons. Gwendolyn also did extremely well sitting up on her own today; she was sitting up for about 20 minutes watching TV and playing with her dress and her spin alphabet/animal toy. She really enjoyed it!

Christmas dress shopping with Gramma

December 10, 2008 by Bill Strong

Gwendolyn has been doing well. She's been having a few mucus plugs over the last few days that are a bit concerning, but overall she's in great spirits so we're just watching her closely.

The Robinul is definitely helping her secretions. We're giving her 2mL doses twice daily via her g-tube and it...

Nice Weekend—Secretions at Bay

December 08, 2008 by Victoria Strong

We had a great weekend. Gwendolyn is responding really well to the Robinol. It seemed to work immediately. At first we thought we were being overly optimistic, but after witnessing the same thing for three days, the Robinol really does seem to control the excessive secretions within 30 minutes of...

Sitting up

September 18, 2008 by Bill Strong

Last time we met with Dr. Wang he mentioned having us start slowly
getting Gwendolyn used to sitting in elevated positions to give her
the best chance of being physically able to be upright if she is
strong enough to use a wheelchair down the road. We have been holding
her up in our arms for months...

We've got all three slides extended on the "mother ship" and we're all
settled in up at Stanford. The trip up today went great - this is
truly like being at home for us. Gwendolyn did well on the drive up
and this is a picture of the first time she sat in the front seat off
of her bi-pap and looked...

Happy 9 Month Birthday!!!

July 05, 2008 by Bill Strong
We celebrated Gwendolyn's 9 month birthday yesterday. Gwendolyn had a great day -- so much so that she played all day with Gramma, skipped most of her naps, and then passed out for the night and missed the fireworks show smile We've been keeping a close eye on her over the last week given the...
