Waverly received her orthotics yesterday!! We have been anxiously awaiting their arrival. When we put them on her, she high stepped across the room laughing. It was hysterical! I put them on her this morning and she is tolerating them beautifully. She hasn't tried taking them off yet. I snapped this photo right after she put them on. I love her smile. Our hope is that they will help her feet straighten out and loosen her heel cord. It is terribly tight and the source of a lot of her walking difficulties.
Wavey has also been sick since Saturday. We went to the doctor yesterday and it is viral, just some type of cold bug going around. Needless to say it has been a very long week.
Thus far, Oliver is still healthy. His tonsils & adenoid surgery is scheduled for Tuesday, so we need him to stay healthy. I really don't want to reschedule his surgery. We are anxious to get it done and (hopefully) improve his sleeping and breathing.
Wavey's school has tired a 1:1 assistant for her. She is a substitute teacher who works in special education. She has spent time in Wavey's class and was excited to work with her. I am looking forward to meeting her. I am seriously overjoyed that Wavey will have someone dedicated to her needs in the classroom. Not only will this free up the teacher to be available to the other students, but I won't worry about her safety as much.
