I have been off blogging for a while. End of November last year, daring the cold, Ziim and I were in Belgium to look into an alternative therapy that promises among other things to address the intense pain she was in as a result of her hip dislocation. I talked about it here. Coming back, I have to follow the instructions to the letter; it entails putting in a minimum of four hours forty five minutes of manual exercises on Ziim everyday. I always like to follow instructions to the letter so that I can confidently say “yes I did it as I was told; here is what I got”.
To achieve those number of hours, still have time to work with other children at the center and get some paper work done, and of course be mummy and do my domestic work, I have to wake up as early as 3 am while Ziim is still asleep and try to work for about three hours before our day starts at about 7 am.(the beauty of the therapy, you can work with the child while she is asleep). So far, I have done it, I am happy, though it has taken me away from my blog among other things. But let me quickly say that the result I have seen so far not just on Ziim, but on other children in the Center that we are trying the therapy on, is enough to justify all the work and a follow up. Now you know why I have been away, I am working towards dropping in often.
