Our Hope

By sharing our story and our experiences with this birth injury we will hopefully educate people. Knowledge is power. Our hope is that you will read this blog, share it with your friends, and they will share with their friends. Then in some small way we have prevented other families from having to go through what we have.

On The Road Again

Wow! I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted! Yikes! Things have been so busy around here.

We are leaving tomorrow morning to start our journey to Philadelphia. Jadon has a check up at 9:30 on Friday morning with Dr. Kozin. I am very interested to see how he feels Jadon is progressing. I am growing impatient and at times anxious but I know that this is a slow process. I try to keep reminding myself of that, and stay positive. He has elbow. He is doing really great with bending at the elbow and when I stretch him out I feel how strong things are getting. We only see the wrist pull inward. No outward movement so the wrist just looks limp most of the time. I am a little concerned about that.

We continue to be concerned with his posture since he has started walking also. He does not walk straight and he does not lift his right leg as high as his left. So we plan to ask about these concerns also. Jadon tends to fall alot because of the combination of two issues....not having one arm to balance him, and the lopsided walking.

The weather here finally got nice enough for us to bust out Jadon's water table. I thought I would share some pictures of him playing. You can see how he bends at the elbow now.

We will update everyone after our appointment!
