In other news, Avery met the qualifications to continue Early Steps by 0.1 points. This is great news, in my opinion b/c it says she is normal but can continue therapy until she's walking. Charlie and I were ready to go ahead and stop all of the therapy but Melanie, one of her therapists, stopped by last night to make sure everything looked normal and noticed Avery was mostly cruising on her tippy-toes. My mom had mentioned this earlier but I thought it was completely normal. She said its a very bad habit that has to be stopped immediately, before she learns how to walk like that. It still relates to the hyper extension and muscle tone problems she has had in the past b/c of being so premature. So we will continue to see PT, only once a month and I will do exercises to help her every day. Melanie also mentioned that although Avery does not have CP (Cerebral Palsy) she definitely has the three factors that would contribute to a diagnosis of CP - which are prematurity, muscle tone issues & developmental delays, but because we started therapy so early she is sure that Avery does not have CP. I count this as another miracle along the way :)
Don'tcha just love cropping? After working a 10 hour day and going on a walk, mama isn't exactly looking her best!
