When Sassy’s family took her to the beach, they noticed how much she loved water.
She kept walking into the ocean despite the 15-year-old’s limited mobility.
That is how they became interested in providing water therapy for Sassy.
A Relaxed Body but Not Enough Strength to keep the Head Afloat
My face in the photo looks so serious!
The reason is because I realized that Sassy wasn’t quite strong enough to hold her own head up above water.
If I moved my hand from under her chin, her nose would go under water and she’d produce bubbles from her nose.
We freaked out every time that happened, but the funny thing was that Sassy was the only calm one!
She was so relaxed and gracious as if she was enjoying a nice snorkeling session!
Plan B Next Time!
Although she was fine with her nose going under water, we were a little concerned.
So I kept my hand under her chin to keep her head up for most of the session.
However without my hand there, I know it would’ve been so much easier for her to move her forearms.
So next time, we’ll have a Plan B, C or even D just in case.
