Gage was evaluated for physical therapy today. It went well. I really like the therapist. She came highly recommended, Even though there are places where he could be seen closer to our house, or even have a therapist come to our house, it is worth it to have someone with so much experience with kids with spina bifida. She used to work in the Spina Bifida Clinic at Children's and also sees Gage's buddy Kaden. Gage did well. She hasn't scored out the test yet, but told me that he was a little behind in a few things and doing well with others. She said that if the test called for army crawling backwards that he would have scored the highest on that, but it requires forward motion, which he hasn't figured out yet. Oh well. I am glad we are starting now, while he is still pretty close to age-appropriate instead of waiting until he's way behind. I am excited to get going with it! Gage was friendly and happy, as always, even though he hadn't had a nap and was tired. Maybe that's why he wouldn't roll back to tummy- or maybe it's because I'm an obsessive OT and never put him on his back and he doesn't really get it yet, even though he can and has done it a couple of times. I guess some mommies over-do the "put the kid on their back" thing. I overdid tummy time.
I also got to see a speech therapist that I worked with in the nursing homes, when I was fresh out of OT school. She is so sweet! My other SLP friend that I knew worked there is on maternity leave...with her 2nd set of twins! I had no idea! I can't wait to see her and catch up!
I guess that's all for now!
