The mind is willing, but the flesh is weak.
A little more detail on her brace. Her lower legs are totally free, but the upper legs are held in a split position by the front and back metal bars, and the leg cuffs, which are velcro'd into place. [Spellcheck refuses to accept that spelling of 'velcro'd', but I like it. Take that, spellcheck bitches.]
She's trying to pull herself up - and she'll get there, but I think for now the muscles are a little weak. I'm very glad that she has the memory of standing, and wants to be there again. I'm not sure if she'll walk unassisted in the brace, but all signs point to yes.
