We went to the physiatrist last Thursday (same day as B.S. parent-teacher conference). She did okay, with only a little meltdown when she had to remove her shoes & DAFOs. I was pleased, considering we have a daily 2:30 meltdown after school. The appointment was okay as well. Slow & steady she goes, making some improvements. It looks like we are going back to water therapy part of the time & doing land PT part of the time. She also wants her back on the treadmill cause her gait doesn't look as good as it did when she was doing the treadmill training. Her "running" has diminished as well without the training. We got some new hand exercises to help get her brain some more input. We made a little improvement in our hand writing, although she certainly has a long way to go. Her DAFOs look good, no changes needed there. Overall, an uneventful appointment. Uneventful is good in my book.
MM is off this week, enjoying her fall break. I am off too, so I am glad to be home! Woohoo!
And now, for your enjoyment... a rare picture of our family!
