They are now going to move her out of water therapy and into excercises to continue to increase her leg strength and improve balance.

She was so thrilled to receive the validation today!! Not to mention she is waking more and more. Her latest accomplishment was to walk through the grocery store instead of using the scooter....couldn't do that 9 mo ago!

That is fantastic!! Really the placebo effect can only do so much. I figure the placebo effect has about the strength of the Copaxone I inject...28% reduction of relapses but no impact on long-term downward progression...and that's being generous to the placebo effect, I think. When you compare the reported results of liberation to that, you are not even in the same ball game.
