Update on Abigail

Well we lost our hearing for Abigail based on the amount of therapy she had when she was 3. Apparently the state does not think that 4 therapies PER week is very aggressive. The good news is --- is that we can reapply on how she is doing now-- Currently Abigail has 5 therpies per week and this seems to be the magic number for approvals. Abigail has an IEP currently through Sixes Elementary school.
Abigail still has the leg length discrepancy of about 1/2 - 3/4 inch ( her left side being shorter). Abigail just finished wearing a series of casting on her left leg in order to stretch her foot so it would touch the ground flat--but with the leg length difference it has become hard for her to walk and she is limping. We will be going to see the orthopedic soon in order to have a lift put on her shoes to balance her out. She wore the cast on her left leg 24 days. She is such a trooper and NO complaining! We are still having to use the cast as a night splint in order to maintain her stretch until the orthotis can figure out what is going on with her AFO she wears on her left leg-it is still hurting her. They may just have to make a new one!
Through it all our little pnut smiles and is so cheerful - we are thankful to have her in our lives. I will keep everyone posted on her leg progress - PLEASE pray that GOD will grow her left leg to catch up with the right! Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see -- Hebrews 11:1
