We are officially cutting back on therapies for Roa. This month, we are taking a break from Courage Center PT sessions. We will continue to take Roa to Independent Swim sessions on our own at Courage 1-2 times a week. It will be nice for Mom to have a break from the drive to Stillwater during this cold wintry month.
Roa will continue to have home-based OT, PT, and Craniosacral therapies one day each week. We will also continue to go to ECFE class weekly so Roa can have play time with other kids and teacher time with Pat. Roa has been going into the HBOT chamber 4-5 nights a week with Daddy. Tuesdays and Fridays will be Mom therapy time! I am excited to have a couple days to work with Roa on my own and actually follow through with therapist recommendations.
Roa has been eating more solids and eating less from the breast! YEAH! He still prefers purees and is gaggy with solids and textures, but we are moving along!
Because of the increase in solids and the bedtime help from Dr. Garcia, sleep specialist, Roa has actually slept THROUGH THE NIGHT 2 nights in a row this past week! YIPPEE! I actually felt sore and achey when I woke up at 4:00am and he was still asleep. I haven't had more than 4 hours in a row for 2 years! We think that Kim's Craniosacral session and the HBOT has also impacted Roa's sleeping in a positive way.
Another fun update, Roa is tolerating more time on his tummy and reaching out with his arm while in a tummy time position. This is great for increased neck, head, trunk and arm control.
I talked with Laurie, OT and case manager about Roa's evaluation for speech therapy. We are looking at that starting in possibly Feb.
And we march on to tomorrow.....
