Another go with the Eksos PLUS East Coast Travel Plans!


Last Friday, Jason returned to Santa Clara Valley Med for another go round with the Eksos.  This time (his third) was really nice.  The gym was very quiet, and you could definitely tell that the PTs had gotten a lot more comfortable with helping people with their walking.  After about an hour using the walker, Jason graduated to the arm crutches.  It took a few minutes to get the choreography of it all, but, as you'll be able to see in the video below, he was eventually able to walk really well with them.  He said the arm crutches were definitely more of a workout than the walker.  It was really great seeing him up and moving, and you could definitely tell that he enjoyed himself.  This really is an amazing piece of technology.

If you've been keeping up with things on the blog, you already know that we're planning on a rather large east coast trip in June/July.  Well, I'm happy to say that all of our plans have more or less been finalized, and they are as follows:

  • June 16-30: Baltimore, MD (Monday-Friday, Jason will have PT from 2-5pm at Kennedy Krieger)
  • June 30-July 4: Fairfax, VA (Jason will be working July 2 &3)
  • July 4: Jason (and brother Nick) will fly back to San Francisco
  • July 5: Ashley and Savannah take massive train ride to Columbia, SC
  • July 6-8: Ashley and Savannah in Columbia-current plans include a trip to the zoo and the children's museum
  • July 8-12: Ashley and Savannah in Walterboro, SC; hope to have at least one day in Charleston, too
  • July 12: Ashley and Savannah fly back to CA (just in time to celebrate the last birthday of my 20s....)
So, if you are near any of these places, we'd love to see you!  Send me an email (ashley.leyba@gmail.com) and we can arrange something.  Willingness to goto zoos/aquariums/children's museums helps a lot :)

Love you all,

Ashley
