Therapy updates

Therapy has been going well even with the few weeks he missed because of camp and vacation. They have been working on climbing stairs and lots of balance activities in physical therapy. In occupational therapy they are working on wash handings, wiping nose, brushing teeth, getting a shirt on, breathing exercises, and more.

New PT activity

He is getting around much better but there is a new issue with safety while he is walking. The physical therapist and I talked about fitting Ty for a AFO brace. This will help to strengthen his left ankle which is getting very weak.  I will be ordering new shoes for him this week and he will be fitted next Tuesday for the brace. I am a little worried about how Tylor will adjust to his new equipment but he has done great so far with all the changes I am sure that this time won't be any different.
