My Goodness, it's been such a long time since I posted anything here. Like many of you - I've decided to go back to school. I'm busier now than I should be and too many things are falling through the cracks. I thought I ought to post a little update any way. So many things have been going on...
Last time I posted I mentioned the issues we were having trying to get MK's walker. We ditched Alpine and went through IHC (The Wheelchair Shop) And they have been wonderful. I've had someone from IHC calling me every few weeks to let me know how things are progressing. At this point, we are just waiting for the walker to come in from Rifton. I expect it any day and we're so excited. What Alpine couldn't do in a whole year - IHC has been able to do in just a couple months. The funny thing is that MK is doing really good with her walking now. She's able to control it better and go further distances. It's so exciting to see, and gives me so much hope.
Our baby is now 13 months old and walking too. They practice together. I'm so glad the baby didn't pass her up. But my heart hurts thinking about the day when she most definitely will.
Our last check up with the docs at Primary Children's was also very good. Because MK is doing so well with her walking, she was able to graduate from wearing DAFOs. Hooray! Just when I thought we were going to be able to go shopping for cute girly shoes - they want her to wear little 'construction' boots to support her ankles. :) I'm still not complaining!
She is really enjoying the free dance class at Dance Image in Hooper. They are so good with all the little girls there, and it seems to be helping her movement too - just by trying to move in different ways. Not to mention the fact that she absolutely loves dressing up in frilly little dance clothes.
Hope you all are doing well.
