For me, fall starts when school starts. :) Picked up an empty labeled bottle tonight for Caitlin's felbatol to bring to school for her noon dose. Going to be weird for me to give up complete control of the medicating. I'm not too good at delegating! It's been a good & bad week for me. Caitlin's new AFO's gave her some nasty pressure areas...not sores yet but they are still red 'pre-sores' where they were rubbing...still red after a few days break! She has PT tomorrow so we will have PT look at them and see if she can pad them somehow. I was excited to find some ankle braces online that are actually small enough to fit C's ankles (which are a tiny 6" around). XXSmall! The thing that annoys me is I asked the doctors at the CP Clinic about something like this for her to wear at night. They haven't arrived in the mail yet, but my plan is to put these on her feet at night so that hopefully her feet will get used to being in the correct, neutral position and she will tolerate her real AFO's better during the day. And we could even put the off the shelf braces on when her afo's come off (she usually gets those off by lunchtime-can only stand to wear them a few hrs). The off the shelf ones are soft, not hard plastic so I am hoping they don't rub her pressure points. Here is what they look like: http://www.betterbraces.com/procare-...-ankle-support Cool, eh?! :) Her new glasses are in, going to pick them up tomorrow. I ordered the transitions lenses for them (for the first time ever). I think that will be nice for her when she is outside to have the 'sunglasses' protection.
My biggest drama this week though was not C, but my 7 yr old Tyler. He has been having headaches all the time for over 2 wks now. I thought maybe he needed glasses so I had his eyes checked last week...nope, farsighted, but not enough to need correction eye dr said. So I had the pediatrician have a look at him. She recommended a CT scan as he said he was having them in the morning when he wakes up (a red flag she said). So I've been a little stressed about that! So he had the CT scan this morning....they called me within an hour with results...totally normal! So GLAD!! I think he might be nervous about school starting up...he had troubles with his teacher last yr, but this yr he got a better teacher so I am hoping once school starts he will feel better about going to school. It's never dull around here! I did have a good weekend at least! The baby shower I hosted for my sis-in-law (Brian's sister) went GREAT! Lots of food & great visiting with family. Nice to be able to close my closet door again finally as I had boxes of stuff for it all over our room for 2 months!!
