Dreaded therapy session!

Today was Nevaeh's PT session. We had a pretty good session as they go. Vaeh was actually able to cruise along a bolster today, something that she's never done! She was actually moving her feet along without anyone prompting her. I was so excited! Then it hit me, we're in trouble when she becomes mobile! Believe it or not, I can't wait!
We also worked on crawling. She doesn't really like going up on her hands and knees, but she will do an army-like crawl. Barb (the therapist) has to put her hands at Vaeh's feet, and gives her something to push off of. She struggles with it, but is improving day by day!
Speech therapy is tomorrow, and then Occupational therapy on Thursday. Our weeks are filled with therapy sessions, and the occasional doctors visit snuck in here or there!
Next week will be a little hectic due to the angioplasty on Thursday, March 13th. They are again going to balloon her pulmonary arteries in hopes to equalize the pressure inside her heart. Once that happens, then we will talk about the next open heart. Not something I'm looking forward to, but a necessary evil.
