|"What is this doing on my pillow?"|
Next, we headed out to Mike's parents' house for Christmas part two. Luna was very agitated here and would not settle down. The specific reason for her acting up is unknown, but we guess that it was due to her desire to get up and follow people around. She seemed upset every time someone left the living room. I think seeing Amber was comforting for her, but also a reminder that she could not get up and follow her like she did a few weeks ago.
At one point, she stood up and refused to lie down so we just let her stand for a few minutes. She even took a couple of steps which was great. She probably stood for more than five minutes and was finally tired enough to lie down and take another nap.
Speaking of Luna's mobility, she is really progressing well. She can now get herself up in to a stand and can take steps with her right feet. Her left is weak and that is where we are focusing her physical therapy. I think it is working because this evening she took a successful step with her back left leg! Got to love progress.
