Kayak Therapy

December 8, 2008

After waiting around since summer, Mariah waded around McGuire’s therapy pool today.  Kayaking was on the agenda, and she loved it. She even got to use her own beautiful wooden paddles which have been patiently resting in her Subaru Outback. As the aquatic wheelchair hit the bottom of the ramp and she walked into the water, she giggled like a kid. We hear there’s a similar setup at Walter Reed. Surf’s up!
