Well, there are so many things to report about Miss Abigail. There have been so many changes since my last post. Let's start with.......SHE IS WALKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hard to believe that day has come. Her PT was able to see heer get up and walk unassisted right before her 3rd birthday. Abby was involved in a program called Birth to Three and I cannot sing their praises enough. Since Abby was 6 months old she had PT, OT, Speech and a Special Education teacher coming to our home and working with her and our family then at day care whn I returned to work. Since March, Abbby has attended preschool to get her services. She goes on the bus and loves the bus ride. She has been ill quite a bit lately so she has only been going 1-2 days a week. The transition is still hard for her and takes such a toll on her body. She tends to take much longer naps in school days.
We still no not have any diagnosis for Abby but even if we did nothing would change how we provide care or services she would receive. She is still non-verbal but understands simple directions and signs. We actually just got back from an inpatient stay at CCMC once again. I had to call 9-1-1 for her on Wed. am. I wonder why Eric and I have gray hairs!!!
Everyday we can see her doing more and more and she is the luckiest girl in the world to have a brother, sister and daddy like she has!!!!
Her specialists these days are: Neurology, ENT, ophthalmologist, cardiologist, urologist, pulmonologist, orthopedic, Shriner's hospital, nutritionist. pt, ot, and speech at school and private OT and craniosacral. Need to give a shout out to Noreen Wallace and her son Jeff at Therapeutic Enterprises in Woodstock, CT!!!! She is on a gluten casein free diet.
Abby has overcome many sensory issues recently. She LOVES music, reading, watching Yo Gabba Gabba, building blocks and she is awesome with puzzles.
