Madi had a great morning at school. She zoomed around her class all morning with lots of energy in her walker and asked to be the teacher during calendar time. Madi stood up at the calendar and used the pointer to tell the date and sang the calendar song all by herself! Madi finished her school morning with a visit with Tiffany who gave her some books to have with her at the hospital.
Jack started his day with his new routine…lounging in bed with Mommy reading lots of books!
Madi spent her afternoon at March of Dimes with Monika working hard and having fun. They practiced using her canes and the biggest celebration of her day was walking the distance of the whole room all by herself!!
Jack & Madi spent their evening playing with Nana while Mommy started getting things organized. They both had a doctors appointment to check on things before leaving. Jacks chest is clear (thank god!!) and just has to keep taking his puffers and Madi is healthy and good to go!
Madi had a great session at Grandview today working on combined PT & speech. They focused on maintaining a long/smooth sound of voice for speech. She did lots of core for PT. Her planks on the ball were pretty impressive. Jack was a super star and kept himself busy with some new OT toys.
Madi had her last ballet class of the year tonight. She has been dancing once a week since September, so everyone was sad that it was the last one. The rest of the class is continuing until June when they will dance in a recital. We are hoping Madi can join the class again next year and dance in the end of year recital with her new legs! Thank you to Suzie and Denise Lester Dance Academy for a wonderful experience that was inclusive and so much fun!
Madi ended her busy day with Shannon to get a massage. Her new bolster was ready for pickup. This will serve her well for stretching and floor time. Thanks Shannon!
