I like to move it move it…

They made me a walker here.  It’s pretty big, but I can push it all by myself.  Everybody laughs and says they can’t believe how good I am at walking.  That’s funny because I used to always walk.  Sometimes I get stuck in doors or go into walls, but someone always helps me unstick.  They like when I walk, but they don’t really want me to run because I could hurt myself.  I love sitting in my wheelchair too.  Today they took off my bandage and now I don’t have to wear it anymore.​  My school sent me some valentines, so I got to open those after school. That was awesome; it really filled my bucket.  Me and my friend Rodrigo are going to eat supper together tonight.  He is a grown up, but he’s the same size as me.  He’s very nice.

  1. Awesome Benjamin, I am so proud of you, it is amazing seeing you walking around. You be careful now but eventually you will be back to your own pace , you already come a long way in such a short time.. You seem to be surrounded by so many good people and friends . I noticed your name on the wall close to the door
    , I guess that is where you and your mom sleep and you even have a view on the city.. . Good night Ben ! Good night Karen !

  2. I LOVE your new walker, Ben. It’s so cool! … and you always have such a great smile! You are such a trooper! xx Gr-auntie Sue
