Annabelle's AFO's (week 2 - the progress continues)

September 22nd - waiting to start PT


She wasn't too sure about the treadmill at first but quickly became more comfortable.

We have been patching Annabelle's right eye for 1 hour each day for a few months now. I try to remember to do it while we are at PT so I don't have to think about it again later in the day. The only down side to this is that I love taking pictures during PT but not so much with the patch on.



Annabelle's therapist was quite impressed that she was able to be vocal while walking on the treadmill for the first time. She said many kids cry the first time and if they aren't crying they are concentrating so hard that they don't talk. I was overwhelmed with happiness seeing her "walk" on the treadmill.

Thanks for following us on this journey - more exciting progress to come!
