What a full day!  Today we met most of the members of Lydia's BIRT - Brain Injury Rehab Team.  The facilities at Holland Bloorview are amazing!  Constructed in 2006, it has opportunities for music, recreation, art, physical and sensory therapies, as well as swimming!  There are also lush gardens and a green space behind, so we will be enjoying more of the outdoors.  
Thankfully, Lydia was fitted with a wheel chair today.  It has a tray table that attaches, so she will be able to use it for more visual and sensory explorations of things set on her tray.  (Think of the time a toddler spends in a high chair, playing on the tray table!)
Lydia was tired after all of the commotion and stimulation of today.  Every space and face was new to her.  May she sleep well, and recover from this big day.  Me too!
