This boy gives THE BEST snuggles! I get kisses, hugs, and LOTS of love on a daily basis - I am so BLESSED!
Bryan tried this new toy at PT last week. I am not sure what it was called (anyone know?) - but it worked on his core strength (this is all assuming we can build core strength). Bryan's legs had to be tied together so his feet wouldn't fall off. He did really well and had fun riding it!
The PT tested Bryan's quad muscles on his right (weaker) leg. Only two of them responded so she recommends he continue wearing an AFO on his right foot/leg (not a shorter brace) since he tends to walk on the outside of that foot. She gave us an insert to wear in his left shoe. Shoes are still hard - as they have to be HUGE to fit over the AFO (so VERY heavy) and without the AFO he falls off the shoe really unnaturally stretching his ankles.We tend to keep him in slippers (Robeez).
Bryan continues to take more steps independently each week - but only if he is wearing his slippers. With the AFO and shoe his balance must be off.
