As I have been recovering from my thyroid removal surgery, it was back to all of Sam’s therapy.
In speech, it was all about making choices. Miranda wanted to try using the iPad with yes and no. She couldn’t figure it out well so used a different program on it. Sam sort of got it.
PT was all about walking
Then school came by. She worked on some speech and actually got him to say Bub Bub for bubbles. Then more walking.
In OT, a lot of playing and trying to get him to try in different ways. He struggled with it.
Despite my thyroid surgery, life is trying to get somewhat back to normal.
Sam had all of his therapies this week already except EI as the school district has this week off.
Speech was a lot of work with feeding
Miranda was pretty happy with his chewing once she did some exercises. He seemed to eat without choking issues and she is working on cup drinking with him.
In PT , it was all about the walking
The boy is on the move. I have more videos I need to share.
He went to OT today and worked with Julia . Paige is off to China so we will be seeing her until January.
I really like her and Sam seemed receptive to her.
Today was a get to know you session.
Life has been insanely crazy so I am horribly behind here.
Nothing to new has been happening.
He finally walked again in PT. He won’t walk at home or in OT.
ST wants to schedule a swallow study ( ok I guess this is new). She is concerned about some aspects of his eating and drinking.
And back on October 1st I should have wrote my 26 month letter to Sam.
He’s walking unassisted!
All the hard work
In pt to paying off.
Go Sammy go
Wednesday was a pretty productive session for Sam. He really just wanted to be on the move but Paige was able to redirect him so they played in the small gym and read a book too
We talked about how next week is basically our last visit with her until January. We will be trying a different time and person while she is in China.
He ended on a high note almost walking
Last week was a rough week for Sam with therapy.
He had a nasty cold and with his Keppra dosage going up, he was a hot mess.
Overall sam therapies didn’t go well and we canceled EI.
The start of this week has went well though.
He did a lot of assisted walking in PT
He was very vocal ( in a good way ) with speech and EI.
Back to Amplatz today for Sam’s neurology follow up. We hadn’t seen them in a while and there was so thought/ concern he was possibly seizing again so they decided to up his dosage
We are suppose to watch him for a month and the touch base with his nurse. We may revisit doing an EEG as it’s been a long time.
He also had OT with Paige and did quite well playing with different toys and playing with another person (Paige)
I think he could have played the drums the whole time
With the start of the school year, that means early intervention is back doing home visits.
After a struggle to wake up, he finally did well with MaryLou.
They worked on play skills and attempted some walking.
With Monday being a holiday, Sam did not have any therapy on Labor Day.
Then Wednesday he had the night off so a Baz could have some OT with miss Paige.
Thursday though EI came out. It went well but I could really watch as we had Sebastian ‘a preschool meeting.
Dear Sammer Sam
Mom is behind with writing you. Back on Sept 1st, you turned 25 months old
So you are full on into your toddler time.
You are still working hard on therapy.
You seem to enjoy pickled garlic.
You loved everything at the State Fair.
Not much else to report sweet boy
