Ruby


Ruby did so well with her vital stimulation therapy,she only had to have three sessions and now she is able to eat a whole jar of the 2nd foods three or 4 times a day.I'm so happy she is eating well,maybe now she will put on a little more weight.She will only have to go to speech therapy once every six weeks again instead of weekly.This is great because I just found out that her occupational therapist wants to start seeing her weekly.So at least I will only have PT and OT to go to instead of ST, OT and PT :) We will also be having her fitted for SureSteps as advised by her PT and she will be starting treadmill therapy soon.We just have all kinds of exciting things going on around here.

It sounds like Ruby is doing great! Sometimes the appointments can be overwhelming so I'm glad she doesn't have to go to ST as often anymore.

I wish they had had sure steps when Jonathan was little...his inserts were the pits. Happy to see Miss Ruby doing so well!

Wow, Ruby is doing so great! I am happy to hear that she will be fitted for good shoes. That is so important. And you'll have to keep us updated on the treadmill therapy!

That is so great! I am curious about the sure steps, our PT said she would probably need fitted for orthotics, so I will have to bring that up! Thanks! Addie is doing well with her treadmill program...I bet Ruby will do great!

sounds like you have some great therapists who are "on top of things"! i have asked our therapist about treadmill training after reading your blog and i think you also had a blog entry about sip tip cups... thanks for the helpful advice/info :) now i will have to ask about vital stimlation therapy as well as sure steps!!!

sure steps are great...we have had them for a while and they sure help the ankles and give added strength.
