Due to another appointment, we got a late start with PT.
I will admit Sam seemed to do better at 9 rather then the usual 8am.
The therapist and I talked as we weren’t there last week.
She did a lot of rolling with him. He seemed to just want to roll anyways so it was probably for the best. He did scare me when he tired rolling while on the yoga ball.
Then she worked on tummy time with Sam. She was impressed with how well he is doing but we need to work on keeping his arms under him to build his arm strength then he can work on pushing up.
Shannon brought some hip helpers but they were to big but I got the general idea of how to use them.
Then she did a lot of sitting and head exercises with him.
We need to work on head exercises as his right side is weak and sitting along with the usual.
While doing some of the sitting exercises, Shannon noticed Sam’s legs were turning purple. She wasn’t sure why so she suggested calling the ped.
When we got home I called. The first nurse thought we needed to be seen ASAP. Then she talked to the doctor.
Plan of action: monitor today and see doctor tomorrow. I guess I am glad I took all day off tomorrow.
Then it was time for EI/OT.
Teacher Karen brought some hip helpers that actually fit so she worked on sitting with him and again his legs turned red then purple.
We are all assuming its some sort if circulation issue. Just not sure what can be done. I guess we will figure it out tomorrow.
She did some rolling and playing with Sam.
Then we did a little paperwork with the change in his plan and goals.
Them she left and I was surprised she didn’t work a whole hour with him.
Now tomorrow it’s visits with urology, renal ultrasound and then pedi to see what’s going on with his legs.
