Meeting up!

Suzanne was in town this evening and we had a chance to meet up and talk in person. I thought I would share a couple of pics, so you can see Sammy and Reichen together. It is so nice to spend a little time with another family who is have similar experiences.

By the way, I have to say that Suzanne has some of the cutest, best behaved kids I have ever met! It was a great time :)

CP Magazine

Cerebral Palsy Magazine
I found found some great articles from this magazine. Wasn't sure if anybody else got the magazine, so I wanted to post the info needed to get the mag. There are older issues you can download for free. That may help you make your decicion :) Let me know what you decide. I'm also game for paying one year, reading the mag and passing it on. The when renewal comes up the next somebody else pays, gets to read it first and mails it to me :) I'm half asleep... did that even make sense?! I'm heading to bed :)

MRI tomorrow

Austin has his MRI tomorrow. I'm anxious to hear if his brain has had any changes since his CT scan when he was only a few weeks old. But then I'm nervous about the day, sedation is never fun and I know he'll be starving by the time it's over. Plus he has such high doctor anxiety these days, I know tomorrow will be crazy.

Wish us luck.

W Sitting

Hi Gals

I hope that you are all doing well. Sorry about not being around much. The summer has been beautiful and I have not been spending any more time on my computer than needed for work. I am sure I will get back into it once school kicks up in September.

I do think of you all often and enjoy reading what your kiddos are up to!

I am looking for some advice from you Mommy's with older little ones. Reichen is now able to transition to sitting and he often transitions directly into the W sitting.

We are constantly giving him the verbal cues to straighten his leg and then straightening them for him. I have talked to our physiatrist and OT and they recommend that we do not have him sit in this position since it can cause issues with the hips.

Did you see the tendency to W sit? What was the most effective way to stop it? Any advice is much appreciated. Thanks!

Since it has been a while -- here is a recent pic of the little dude:

Where Are You?
