New Feats for Rolly Man!

I’ll keep this brief. Roland started out with super straight arms and super bent knees. And they were stuck that way. And I mean STUCK.

Roland before any medical intervention.

 

After therapy, stretching and casting  for the last five months, Roland’s arms can bend enough to suck his thumb (!!!) and his legs are straight enough to walk across the living room without a walker.

WITHOUT A WALKER!

(Those were links up there. That’s right. Videos. Clicky clicky!)

Oh yeah and the doctors in his birth country didn’t think he could do either one.

Take THAT arthrogryposis!!!

Oh…

You may all commence screaming now.

YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY YAY
