I forgot to mention that Gianna thinks the wheelchair is pretty cool too. She did sit in it the day it came but she really doesnt seem jealous of it or anything. I prepped her for awhile before it came...telling her that he was getting it because he has a little bit of trouble with his muscles and we need to help him sit up and get around. Ironically in the morning, before the chair came, we were watching a show that had a little boy in a wheelchair. He was older and Gianna asked me when he was going to learn to walk. I told her that some people don't learn to walk and they use wheelchairs to get around. She was very curious about this! I told her that the chair was similar to the one Anthony was going to be getting. I said that he has some trouble with his muscles and we hope someday he'll learn to walk, but if he doesn't then that's ok too and we will just wheel him around or he will learn to wheel himself!
A technician came to deliver the chair and was here for quite awhile setting it up. Anthony's Physical Therapist and I were in front of our sofa working with Anthony and Gianna was leaning over the back of the couch watching the tech. Suddenly I heard her softly say, "I have trouble with my muscles too!" I don't think he heard her but MAN, it took all I had not to start to cry...how sweet and innocent and just PRECIOUS! We've been making sure to give her lots of TLC and special attention...she's is one of a kind that kiddo...LOVE her to PIECES!!!
