After a little bit of chaos this morning, Brady and I arrived in Henrietta for his first PT appointment at exactly 8:30am. At the last minute before leaving I remembered that Dr. L had given me a letter saying Brady was cleared for PT. Long story short, I couldn't find the letter and it took me 15 minutes to not find it. Then I forgot my gas tank was empty! After a quick stop for gas we were on our way. We actually went to an Al Sigl Center that houses center based programs for children with disabilities. We met with Linda a wonderful and kind PT who worked with us for close to 2 hours. She didn't know much about Brady other than he was suspected of having CP at one point, that we later found out it was cancer, and that he had two surgeries. I think she was quite surprised to see our hero Brady crawling, standing (he didn't attempt walking), and cruising around like a champ! I have to say that it has been a while since I have told "our story" to someone from the beginning. Doing so caused me to really reflect on the scope of the past three months while driving home. As I looked in the rear view mirror at his sweet, sleeping face, I couldn't help but tear up as I thought about what my child has endured. All the pain, scary moments, new faces...yet he still trusts me, he still loves to explore his world, he still giggles. God is so good to have protected his innocence despite all that has happened.
Anyway, back to PT. It looks like he will have two sessions a week for 30 minutes each. She wasn't even sure he would qualify given how well he is doing, but after scoring the test, he will qualify. I'm glad to have a specific time set aside to focus on catching Brady up! He deserves that one on one time.
On a lighter note, I have made it to the top ten in the Mother of All Bloggers Contest!!! The top ten was chosen by a panel of judges. The next part of the contest is from now until May 6th. The winner will be chosen by people who go to the website and VOTE!!! I don't believe that you need to be a member of momlogic to vote. You can either:
1. Go to the Mother of All Bloggers icon to the right, click on it, and then find the Steps for Brady logo and vote.
2. Or go to http://community.momlogic.com/group/motherofallbloggers and vote that way!
Please pass this info on to anyone that you think would be willing to vote! I'm so excited to think of all who will be reading about Brady and learning about NB! Thanks for all of your help in getting me this far in the contest!
