So Darsie is doing well. We are currently doing one hour of hydrotherapy, two sessions of developmental preschool through our local EI center, and one hour of PT weekly. We kind of have a speech session mixed in with one of our weekly sessions of preschool.
Besides growing bigger everyday it seems, Darsie is getting more and more physical. She is running and walking over all surfaces, can climb stairs going up (but not down), walk on uneven surfaces, and is gaining new words everyday. I think I need to start a list of words for when her therapists ask me how her speech is coming. She doesn't talk a lot but does when necessary (like the teacher isn't looking at her during snack and she wants more COOKIES!). She is an incredible singer and is starting to dance. She loves to kiss herself in the armoir mirror and is absolutely in love with any babies (bebe!) that we see.
Recently we got Darsie a new hand splint. We had been using homemade, or rather OT made, neoprene splints but she has such an thumb abduction that we needed to get her something she could not pull through. We went through a local company named Benik to get her a new neoprene splint. The difference is that this one has a piece of plastic in the web space so she can't pull her thumb in. It is moldeable when heated. We also ordered her one that has a bit more velcro on it because she could weasle her way out of the other ones. This one has one big flap that velcros and then three small flaps that velcro over that one. So far we have had great success with it!
I've had this post written for two days and I hit save as draft instead of publish. UGH, pregnancy brain!
