We came home from Shriner tonight with a new pair of DAFO's. This is the first time that we have used Shriners for his orthotics. I am pleased because they included a new pair of shoes (far right).
I pulled out is older braces and noticed how much bigger Crew is getting.
This month has been crazy. Here's how the month of January pans out:
4 visits from the PT, 2 from OT, 1 with Speech Therapy, 1 from our Hearing consultant, 2 appointments with the Audiologist, 2 X with the ENT, 1 appointment at PCMC with our Opthalmologist, 1 with Dr. Rehab, 2 trips to Shriners, 3 Blood draws from the lab, 4 phone calls to/from the Neurologist, 6 visits to the Pharmacy (what a joke!), 6 days of Preschool, 2 visits with Crew's future Preschool teacher, and one upcoming IEP.
On top of that: 3 Basketball games for Stockton, 2 Spelling Bees, 1 Dr. visit for Myself, 4 nights of Cub Scouts (I'm the leader), 1 Birthday party and 2 dates with DH(that's the fun part).
I never thought my life would be like this but I feel like the more therapy and intervention we get for Crew early on the more progress he will make. I've recently seen improvement in Crew's core strength. This is really exciting because I feel like as he improves his trunk strength we will see improvement in his walking and transitioning. Yeah!
