Physio Therapy

I (Jenny) have been having some problems with my right shoulder.

A couple of years ago I had a frozen left shoulder and so I thought that the same thing was happening with the right.

It turned out to be tendinosis with secondary capsulitis (frozen shoulder).

I have been helped a lot by Khun Nat, a lady physio therapist at the local McKean hospital.

When Mum was hear over Christmas, I took her along as well and so we spent time together "on the couch" for two sessions each week. Khun Aa could speak some English and was able to help Mum quite a bit.

I can thoroughly recommend the PT department at McKean. It is inexpensive and they give very good care.

David was one of several students who shared their experience of life after GIS.


David Sets Off For Cambridge

In July, David received his Advanced Placement (AP) exam results and his place to study Engineering at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge was confirmed.

After a lot of shopping and collecting things from the loft, he was ready to go.

On Sat 29th Sept, we drove up to Cambridge and along with all the other new students, installed David into his room.

I was blessed to be able to stay with friends the Johnson family who used to be at Arun Community Church but now live on the outskirts of Cambridge.

On Sunday we enjoyed attending Kingsgate Church. David was warmly welcomed and he has continued to settle and really enjoy his involvement there.

He has also settled extremely well into university life. He has made friends in his corridor, college and course and has become affectionately known as "Baby David" by the whole college.
