Well we went to see DR for pedi orthopedic about Sean because he is in toeing when he walks. His therapist recommended us to go because of the weakness on the right side.
So we went and our appointment was at 12 and we left at 2:30 the doc was behind which was hard to keep Sean occupied and from falling asleep since he naps around 1:30. But we managed and she assessed him. She had him walk around, go up on his toes, streching him, playing his feet, legs, back, reaching, hips and much more.
She said his hips and feet look good which is great. She also said that his tendons are weak which is causing him to in toe. She said we could put him in braces where he would have to wear them all of the time but she said it would slow him down with everything else so for now we are going to wait and see. She thinks he will out grow it once his muscles get stronger.
She kept mentioning CP and I was confused after she mentioned it the third time and I said why do you keep mentioning CP and she said that the medical term of Sean's right side weakness is a form of CP. Someone mentioned this to me earlier today so I was not completely shocked but I still was a little. She said the pedi neurologist will tells us more when we see them about everything and the stroke. So now I will be googling the two together and probably driving myself more insane.
She also mentioned to have him always bare foot in the house and the grass this summer because it will put pressure and sensation in his feet and will help his sensory issues. It will interesting to see what he will do on the grass bare foot this year. Last summer he wouldn't do it, he cried and cried until you picked him up. All we can do is try and try a little bit at a time.
It truly will be baby steps with his sensory stuff because if you push him to far out of his comfort zone he won't even be willing to try it the next time.
So one more doc down for now or at least till next year:) These pictures are from last weekend. This weekend we are suppose to get SNOW........... yep SNOW in April......... that is the midwest for you.
