New Splints

Tuesday, June 26, 2007

Big day today! We took Poppy to the airport this morning. He's off to England and America for 2 months and Isla was fitted for new AFO's this afternoon as well!

Rob (the orthotist) couldn't believe how much she's grown since October! The AFO's she has now should fit her for another year but she's already busting out of them! Only 1 more week and we'll have a brand new pair - which means new shoes, I hope we can find "flashy shoes" in bigger sizes!

Casting went well. Isla didn't kick or pull which was what we were worried about. She cried a bit though, but once she was able to put one of her helpers and shoes back on she was fine while Brendon did the other cast.

Isla is such an entertainer these days, she has us in fits of laughter all day long. Her vocabulary is incredible, she has so many words and loves to sing and dance :o)

Isla is walking everywhere and it's amazing! Her walk is a little unconventional, she can't really go in a straight line, but it's so wonderful to watch. We've had to ditch the pram (Isla's choice not ours!) and she does her best to walk everywhere we go.

A few weeks ago we were part of a Paed training exam at C'town Hosptial. Isla and I went down for some "short exams" where some Paed's in training from Westmead and Sydney Children's Hospital. Over 2.5hours, Isla was seen by 4 different Paeds who had to determine what condition she had. All they were told was "Isla is 2.5yrs old. She was born at 35 weeks and has only just learnt to walk in the last month. Please assess"

It was really good to see the different ways Dr's worked, they all came to the same (and correct) conclusion but they all came to their answer differently, it was really interesting. One of the Dr's being assessed was amazing, and I wished I paid attention to where she was from because she had the best bedside manner - she was unreal, I wish there were more dr's like her!

Isla was weighed and measured on this day too - 10.2kgs fully dressed :o( And 79cms tall so she's in the lowest percentile for height and weight. It was strange to hear them say she was short because we get so many comments on how tall she is.

Happy Birthday Aunty Leane!

Tonight we ventured up to the freezing Blue Mountains to visit Aunty Leane for her birthday. It was first time in ages that we've seen them and the first time Ian has visited their place - and he was suitably impressed!

Was great to see Leane, Glenn, Danielle, Aaron, Kane and Max again! We won't leave it as long next time!
