Yesterday we had three appointments. Today we had two. It’s been a busy two days, and in addition to that, my husband had me running around doing things for him because he’s been working in Baton Rouge all week. That’s why yesterday was so nuts. Also, I knew we were gearing up for another big day, and in my heart or hearts I wanted to lie in bed til eleven.


We tried out Theratogs today–both the PT and OT came and one stayed lated and the other came early, so they could work together. He did really well, and seemed to like the support he was getting. He tolerated a lot of fiddling and was fine as long as we kept some music playing. They were still having some issues getting his pelvis the way they wanted, but they were missing the literature on the pelvis, so they may get that worked out too. I could already see a difference in his head control with them on, so that’s good.

In a rare moment of serendipity, I called the doctor and secured a prescription for Theratogs in under an hour. One phone call and one hour. I think that’s probably a record for getting something done via the medical establishment.

Other than that, I realized today while perusing my day-planner that I’m supposed to be leaving for a vacy to the beach in one week and two days. I don’t even have a swim suit. Oh well, a week at the beach in a good thing no matter how you slice it. For those of you that are wondering, no, Charlie won’t be going with us. It’s an extremely long drive and it would just be too much for him. Plus, I think he’s a little young to be spending a lot of time in the sun. So, a week without the baby. Charlie and I will be taking a vacation with my family in September to New York City! I’m so scared to fly that I get nervous just writing about it, but the tickets are bought. Add to that a possible girl’s weekend to Houston and a trip to Arkansas in October, and I feel like a regular jet-setter or something.

Suddenly, the boring, stay-at-home mom thing has taken a turn for the hectic.

    I cannot wait to get back to the beach. Hmm, I am wondering if Charlie gets over-stimulated easliy?

    Superb! Thanks so much for sharing on the TheraTogs. I’ve invested a bit in those stretchy things, and I want to hear anything I can about them. I hope your therapists were not too stressed by not getting the pelvis perfect on the first try. You might hope that his suit needs adjustment at each visit just because of the progress. Theratogs are a technique or modality with great potential if used correctly. I’ll be watching for more reports. Thanks! Barbara

  5. therextras–One of the major things with the pelvis was that they didn’t have the booklet that showed ideas for pelvis. I think that by the time a set of Theratogs are approved by Early Steps, then we’ll have all the booklets and better be able to use them. Today was just a test to see if he tolerated them.

    Shoe addict: He gets over-stimulated very easily by too much noise, but does OK with touch and taste. Basically, since he’s very auditory he gets kind of freaked out if there are a lot of voices and whatnot.

  6. Well dang… I guess if we come down for the ‘ville seafood festival I won’t be able to depend on you to show me where that playground is.

    Consider my tongue extended. :)

  7. Woohoo for trips planned and things to look forward to! I think it’s great that you’re going to the beach without Charlie…ya I am sure you will miss him but it’s also a break that you very much deserve!!

  8. White Hot Magik says:

    Wow, all the therapy and doctors appointments boggle my brain. Charlie is so lucky to have such a capable mama, I would probably break down. You deserve a break at the beach!

  9. Small Town Girl says:

    Wow, and people were giving me crap about all my (two) vacations I had over the winter!! You’ve got WAY more exciting things happening!

  10. You TOTALLY deserve a beach vacation! Yay! You can always buy a new suit when you get there.

  11. Jacolyn says:

    OMG!! If I have a day without an appt or two, I assume I’ve left one off my calendar.

  12. enjoy your time away – have a great vacation!

  13. ooo, the beach–which beach are you guys headed to?

  14. It is really wonderful that you have parents that will chip in and allow you to go off for some well needed R x R. Hope you are having fun.

    And it is so great that you Charlie the Strong is progressing so well :)

    hugs to you and Charlie
