On February 15, 2011 Gavin got his first dose of Botox injected into his calves to help relax the muscles. Kids with TSD eventually get tight all over their body especially in their arms and legs. Although it took a while for the results to kick in, it is now a bit easier to put on his leg braces. There are so many days when Gavin surprises us with strength when he does his physical therapy- some days he is just so tired and weak, and other days, he can take many steps with help and can tolerate being on the stander for a good 30 minutes- Go Gavin!!!!
