General Update

Sunday, March 18, 2007

It's been a while since I updated...

We've had a few OT sessions, and Isla is doing really well. Mel seems pleased - I guess, it's hard to tell. Isla's mirroring is becoming less noticeable, and her tremors are happening less and less :)

Speech Pathology is going really well, all of our work has really paid off. Isla now has a range of verbs equivalent to an average 3 year old! Now we need to work on concepts, like asking her what people are doing in stories. Should be fun. SP is the only one of Isla's therapies that I really enjoy. We've been told by Kate that we really don't need to see her anymore, but she asked whether I wanted to her to check up on her in a few months time, so I said yes. We see her in May.

Isla can now walk about 4 metres on her own, and is trying to run! She's still a little unsteady, and falls when she's not concentrating but such an improvement. We have the Botox Clinic on Wednesday so we'll see where we go from there.

Isla still has that "thing" on her eye. We've seen 4 GP's and one Opthamologist about it. If it's still there in another 3 weeks we have to go back to the Opthamologist and have her scheduled to have it surgically removed under GA at Campbelltown Hospital. I'm pretty certain it will still be there, she's had it for 5, almost 6 weeks already...
