It’s been a month since I posted on the blog. I really was feeling burnt out and just needed a long break. Plus I was sick with strep for two weeks and simply did not feel up to writing anything.
My life is ever chaotic but full. There is always so much going on. It’s never-ending but I’m thankful we have so many activities to keep us busy.
Jackson has therapy every Monday in Charleston right now but that should be ending soon. It’s for his Parent – Child Interactive Therapy and it’s been amazing for us. His therapist is so impressed with our family and how quickly we have achieved our goals. It’s been great for me too because it’s assured me that I have this Momma thing down. Parenting comes easy to me even when I feel like I’m barely keeping it together. I always knew I was born to be a Momma.
Jackson also has therapy on Tuesday’s where we always have. He’s my third child at NextStep. They are amazing to work with.
Last week, Jack was fitted for braces and shoes for his feet as requested by his wonderful therapist. The braces fit inside his shoes and help with his arch support. They keep his ankles from twisting and help him balance better. At least that is the hope. If these don’t work, he will get ankle supports to help him gain strength in his legs and feet. The goal is to prevent him from having similar issues as Emmalee has.
Laycie began back with her speech therapy last week as well. She’s officially done with physical and occupational therapy. Her speech is still challenging though so she will continue with that. I really need to get her an appt to have her tongue tie checked and discuss surgery options for it. I just dread having her suffer with having that done.
She has a neurology appt on Monday. We will see how she is doing and if she has lost any more weight. If so, she will be switching medications again which is always a challenge for her. The doctor had some suggestions for us that we will discuss at this visit. Not sure what they exactly are but I trust his opinion on the matter.
Winston and Emmalee are doing great as always. At the neuro Monday, I will bring up Emma’s followup for her feet so we can see where we are on that. I’m so past ready for the doctors to get rolling with a treatment plan.
So that is our most recent update. Life is just so busy right now and Christmas time is always exceptionally busy for us. Hope you are all well! God bless!
