A series of fortunate events…

It was definitely a series of fortunate events that brought us to Ramon Cuevas…and how happy and grateful we are!  Today Nathan had his first appointment with Ramon.  It was AMAZING!  The man is a true master, an artist of his trade.  There is no one like him in the disability world.   He played Nathan like a master musician plays a violin..it was amazing to watch.  Nathan did things that he’s never done before, just because of the skill in this man’s hands and attitude.

After Nathan’s appointment with Ramon I was able to go to dinner with him and Simona, his #1 student.  We had a lovely time discussing CME, its history and future.  I learned all about how CME was conceived and what Ramon hopes to accomplish.  It was so amazing!  Can you imagine having dinner with someone like Mozart or Van Gogh?  That’s what it felt like, having dinner with Ramon Cuevas!  I have no doubt that in some year’s time, CME will be the standard of therapy and Ramon will be treated like a hero.

What I loved about watching Ramon work is the passion with which he approaches his trade.  By the time I met Ramon and Simona for dinner, he had worked 14 hours with about as many children.  I figured he’d be exhausted – I was wrong.  He was full of joy and energy.  He told me that working with the kids gives him joy and energy, that he LOVES working with them and empowering them, and he never gets tired for the excitement of watching children progress.  You can sense that energy in him, it is contagious.

I know this post is a bit aimless…I guess I am saying that CME (Cuevas Medek Exercises) is AMAZING, and it’s creator a true artisan, a true magician and wizard of his trade.  I am excited to see what he can do with Nathan.

As for Mr. Nathan, he did very well in his appointment with Ramon today.  He was a little bit off, with a low grade fever and just a general lack of energy.  But even with that, he did well.  Tommorrow and Tuesday we have 2 appointments each day so we’ll see how things go over the next 2 days.

As for me, I can go to sleep tonight feeling sure that I found the very best person in the world to help Nathan with his gross motor issues.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhh…..what a relief………..what a joy, to go to bed knowing I did the very best I could to help my boy.   SIiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
