Recovery time

What she said. My 5 yr old grandson had a mild case about the first of August and is mostly recovered. He still gets tired really easy and is walking with one foot splayed out. His school therapist says he is still uncomfortable about balance and has trouble hopping on one foot but his hand strength is up. Sure am grateful for all the support he gets at school. We had an IEP meeting last week and had 5 support staff there!!

Recovery time…

….takes time. I was very determined to get better as quickly as possible and I ended up slowing my progress 🙁 Don’t overdo/overexert yourself too much. Your body does need to be pushed a little…but it also needs the time to rest and relax in between your OT/PT sessions. I would come home after an hour of PT and sleep for 2-3 hours initially !! Eventually, it was less and less. Takes time to regenerate. And remember, everyone’s body/reaction to GBS is different, what works for some, may not be the best for others. Listen to your own body…positive thinking works wonders, determination is key as well. Just know what your body’s limits are….
