Matthew had his weekly speech therapy appointment this morning. According to the therapist, he is doing even better than she expected which is wonderful to hear. I am amazed at how much his vocabulary has improved over the past couple of months. Now, we just need to continue working on the pronounciations.
I took Maia to therapy this morning. It's been a couple of weeks since I went so it was nice to talk with the physical therapist. No occupational therapy today as the therapist was off. Anyway, Linda (PT) said she is very happy with how Maia is doing. She notices a difference even in the couple days between visits. Below is a picture of Maia walking with a regular walker. She does well with it, except her hands have to be held on the handles. We haven't figured out what the issue is, but when she was in the PICU, Maia had a huge aversion to anything even touching her hands so there has been progress. She is paying more attention to things and is making more eye contact which is good.
Such a sweet girl... you have to ignore the pamphlet rack in the background. I took the picture in the ED waiting room.
Spent a little mom/Matthew time this afternoon which was nice. Overall, Mark and I feel like he has done pretty well with the transition home. Thank you for your ongoing prayers in this regard. They are making a difference.
Maia's teacher stopped by this afternoon to talk about summer school. She missed the first session, but we are going to go ahead with the second session and see how she does. It will be two weeks in the morning. I'm so appreciative that Maia will have this opportunity. Feeling a little protective of her, but knowing how much she has enjoyed school - I think it will be good.
Had more I wanted to blog about, but time has run away from me so it will have to wait until later. As always, thank you for your prayers and encouragement!
