Her brother can be heard in the background encouraging her by telling her she's already been walking for a minute. Maya had to spend 26 weeks at the ICU but her fighting spirit earned her the nickname "Mighty Miss Maya" from her family members and friends. According to the family's YouCaring page, she spent the first 87 days of her life in the hospital's NICU before being sent home. Maya yells, "Yes! I'm walking!"
Mum, Ann Tisdale, posted the video to her Instagram page, which celebrates her daughter Maya and has an appropriate tagline of "Living life with CP like a boss".
"I'm walking!" Maya says, smiling and laughing before adding: "Yes!"
Maya's first steps come just seven weeks after she underwent selective dorsal rhizotomy, a surgical procedure on the lower spinal cord. Her mother, Ann Tisdale, noticed that the youngest of the family's three children had tightness in her legs and was skipping typical infant milestones. I can't even put into words how we are feeling. "I did it!" as she tells her mom she doesn't need a cane.
Tisdale said that although Maya had been using the assistance of a walker since she was 1, Maya really desired to walk independently.
"We expected where Maya was before surgery that it would take her at least six months to a year to get to independent steps and here we are seven weeks after. But to just have those first steps and knowing that it's possible is so great for her and our family".
How can we think that? That was, for me, the explanation and I thought: "OK, come on, we need to check that". But now I know a concussion isn't coming and going in a day - if you have one, you see it days later.
