So I walked in from work yesterday, and I see a new blue baby chair on our living room floor! We have been assigned a new therapist through ECI, and she happens to be fabulous! She had told us last week she was going to bring Jude a new chair he can sit in while eating. We had been let down by the other therapist never providing what she promised, so this was a pleasant surprise! I decided I wanted to see how the chair worked, and decided to put Jude in it. He wanted no part of it.
Jude thinking, "I am not happy about this at all!"
Jude saying, "The paci is NOT going to help.....get me out!"
Anyway, the therapist also worked with Jude on tracking objects. We found that he likes his bright red Elmo doll, and that he is on level one of the vision issue. I am rather uneducated on what that means so I plan to review her paperwork tonight. I am encouraged about the Elmo doll, because Jude would laugh at it when we played with him.
Jude was cracking me up last night. He wanted me to hold him, and only me to hold him. Mike, and Emily were playing to "towel popping" game with each other, and just being loud in general. Every time one of them would yell Jude would get this really concerned look on his face, with a furrowed brow, and look directly at me. I reassured him that it was nothing to worry about... that his family is just crazy.
Have a good day, and support childhood stroke awareness!!!
