Things have been busier then normal this last week, so we apologize for not posting in a while. We are hoping after the long weekend we can get back on track with Life and regular updates for all our loyal followers.
Earlier this week Madison had the opportunity to work with Janet Dunn from Swimming Canada. She visits a few times a year to check on the progress from the little para swimmers and help Madison’s instructors plan for next steps.
Madison and Jack also celebrated little Sophia’s 1st Birthday!
Madi had two hours of training with Jo-Anne and her team
Jack loved Pancake Tuesday!
Madison helped launch Variety Village’s fundraising campaign for Valentines Day
The Olympic spirit is strong in this one!
We had Madi’s first IEP review at school. 8 people sat around a table to plan for Madison’s School supports and goals. The areas focused on were safety, gross motor, fine motor, life skills, mobility & orientation and social interaction. Everyone was on the same page and we were able to have a big contribution to what was reflected on the report. Overall it was a great review.
In other news…Papa is home! He is doing well and Madison and Jack have been very happy to FaceTime with him daily and will be seeing him this weekend. Thank you to everyone for all of your supporting messages and for all of your help!
Madison received her first Ash Wednesday Ashes at school today. She was thrilled to show everyone.
The kids loved celebrating Valentine’s Day. Thanks everyone for all the gifts!
Madi went for a visit to see Eric after school today. She is 9 months post op and has already grown out of her AFO’s from St Louis. Eric figured out a way to create an inset that can be used in her AFO’s and SMO’s – so clever! After much thought and debate, she will be mostly using her solid AFO’s to develop her walking and use her SMO’s to develop strength. We will not have a hinge on her AFO at this time due to her crouch in her gait. She also has heel wedges in her shoes to help her balance shift forward. She loves the new pattern….pink Blue Jays logos on her AFO’s and also the straps! Thanks Eric!!!
