Just thought you might like to see my performance at the rehab center. Today I warmed up on the Peanut Roll - I have to balance on it. It's pretty hard. Mom has to act like training wheels so I don't fall off. It helps my balance and strengthens my muscles. Then I had to do the wheelbarrow, which I'm finally getting used to - it's a little embarrassing so I didn't put it in my workout video. I'm supposed to do a cross-legged stand which is really, really hard! I'd like to see YOU do that! Finally, I get in the pool and do the underwater treadmill. The cute girl you see is my therapist, Melissa. I really like her. She tells me what a great job I'm doing and gives me treats. After I'm pretty tired out on the treadmill, I still have to do my free swim. This is the part, as you know, that I really don't like. Melissa puts a "swim cap" on me so I won't get water in my ears and then tries to entice me into the pool. Sometimes I'll start swimming on my own, but when I've had enough, she has to get a little more persuasive. But when I've finished, she praises me, gives me a treat and a good rub-down. I love the rub-downs! I wiggle and squirm with delight and then run all around the room in excitement!
