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.

Here We Go Again

Tomorrow morning we leave for Philadephia.  We will stop for the night in Ohio and visit with my cousin.  Then on Thursday we will head on into Philly.  Jadon's appointment with Dr. Kozin is on Friday at 8:45.  As usual I am very anxious to see what Dr. Kozin thinks of Jadon's progress.  I will be sure to update everyone after our appointment! 

I wanted to share some pictures from last weeks therapy session.  I love looking at these pics.  He was working so hard!  Ellen gave Jadon a box of stretchy toys and showed him how she wanted him to hold one end in his right hand and the other in his left and pull.  At first he was not cooperating then all of a sudden he decided to give it a try.  He probably continued to pull the little stretchy worms for about five minutes.  It probably helped that Daddy, Mommy, and Ellen were all cheering him on.  We were all so proud.  Ellen was so proud she let him take on of the worms home to show off his new trick!  Here are some pics I got!  He pulled to hard with Righty that Lefty had to let go!!  Mommy has since stocked up on some stretchy animals for home!  Each week I find myself on the hunt for something fun we saw at therapy!

Jadon also did another round of e-stim.  This time on his upper arm.  She was looking for elbow extension.  Unlike his lower arm, we could tell he felt that something was going on in his upper arm.  Each time the machine would start pulses he would react.  This time she was just getting him used to what it felt like so we did not do to many exercises while it was on.  We are going to work up to that. 
No therapy with Ellen this week since we are traveling.  We will miss her.  I will be back later in the week to let you know what Dr. Kozin had to say!
