First Week of Thearpy

Notice the inward legs and the pointed toes
So Emerson finished her first full week of therarpy. Emerson gets thearpy for three hours a day. She begins at 10:00 am and ends at 4:00 pm with a two hour break inbetween. Emerson has physical thearpy, occupational thearpy, and speech thearpy. Right now in physical and occupational thearpy the goal is to get Emerson to hold her head up! She can hold her head up for 13 seconds about every 10th try. Hey it's a start, and we couldn't be happier. :) Occupational thearpys goal is the same as physical right now but it's also to get her to use her hands and legs more and to reduce the tone throughout her body. Emerson has shown a lot of progress. Emerson's tone is like someone who has had a stroke, except she's unique because her elevated stiffness is on her left hand and right leg. Emerson also has what they call ballerina feet. But we are working on all of that. Over the weekend of Aug 7-8 Emerson devoloped an ear infection, pink eye, teething (getting her 2 yr molars), and so constipated that it was pushing on her diaphram. So overall Emerson had a great first week of thearpy!
