When we got Anna's transplant call, she was just a few weeks into the Special Olympics soccer season. She was disappointed she had to miss the rest of the season and being able to attend the State Soccer Games. Today she had her first track practice of the season. She was so happy to be able to see her friends again, along with her coaches and the volunteers.
She hasn't really been physically active since the transplant. Her CI class in school has started going to a local fitness center thanks to a grant they had received, but she has only had one session of exercise before this practice. She tired out faster than she normally would today at practice, so I see we're going to have to ease into this a little bit slower than usual. Thankfully with Special Olympics, it's ok for her to go at her pace. As their motto goes, if she does not win, let her be brave in the attempt!
