Abigail will be going to school tomorrow. She has school on Tuesdays and Thursdays. She will also go and see Mrs. Kelley her aquatic physical therapist. Abigail is doing very well in all her current therapies but she is at risk of losing some of them thanks to the new medicaid cuts. It would not be as big of an issue if we could get Abigail insured but under an individual policy no company will insure her due to preexisting conditions. Please pray that her medicaid (deeming waiver) will continue to help pay for her many therapies needed.
Thanks and God bless,
Here's some of Abigails pictures during her Conductive Education in Orlando. Mrs Sandra is the conductor that works with Abigail. She is originally from Hungary. This form of therapy/education originated from the Peto institute in Hungary and has only been in the United States since 2001.
We are home from Orlando! Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers while we were away!!! Abigail had a wonderful and very productive week of therapy. She worked on lots of two handed tasks - carrying things with two hands, pulling pants up and down (since we are still working on potty training), turning light switches on/off with her left hand and many other daily tasks that require two hands. Abigail worked on walking up/down stairs with alternating legs, focusing on strengthing her left leg with her foot straight and heel down when walking. Abigail was very enthusiastic each day about the new activities she would get to do with Mrs. Sandra (the conductor that works with Abigail). She was very patient and willing to work on new and challenging activities. We are very thankful for such a wonderful week in Orlando and will be returning after the holidays and new year in March. Please continue to keep Abigail in your prayers and that God will continue to strenghten her left hand.
