Weight is coming back up!!

So happy, that on yesterday my precious little one had gained a pound of her weight back!  Still not what I expected, but it is a step in the right direction.  She also had occupational therapy yesterday and did really well!  So happy for her, for us!!  We are going to relax again today and enjoy the blessing of a air conditioned home!!

Quality time!!

That's right!  We got it in today!  We went to see Cars 2, first viewing was sold out and I thought we were getting there on time!  We were able to get tickets for the second show!  If you're thinking of going, go!!  Very fun movie....we love  Cars and was not let down with this one!!

At first, my princess thought we were leaving without seeing a movie, she was looking sad, I explained to her that we had to come back because the first movie was crowded and sold out!  That movie theater was a welcomed sight when we got back.  I thoroughly enjoyed my day out with my daughter.  No one else, just the two of us!!

Tough cookie!

I think my little princess is about as tough as they come!! Really!!!! We are still working at the scoliosis about a process!  She is still resisting.  I am determined and prayerful that she will wear it on a daily basis, does not matter if it's day or night, one hour or 8.  Even if I have to put it on her for an hour, which is all she put up with last night, and take it off for a few hours then back on again.  Whatever it takes to avoid any kind of spinal surgery...we're gonna do it!! Persistence is KEY!!

Mommy is excited about taking her to see Cars 2 this weekend!! That should be a cool treat for us both, and an escape from the everyday things!

Scoliosis jacket/ night time splints update

Progress has been made, finally got the little darling to sleep ONE full night in her jacket!!! YAY!  I really think it was by accident on HER part.  She was sleepy and it was going past her bedtime when I put it on her Tuesday night ( 6.7.11 ), I was so elated that we got a full night.  She had other things in mind, because since that night she has NOT made a full night again, luckily we had and ortho appointment this past Friday, and he said that the jacket is doing its job, when she's in it, her 19 degree curve was down to under 5 degrees, shown during her x-ray!!  Happy about that!  I asked if it was okay to have her wear it during the day while she's home lounging, to get her acclimated to it...YES!  So, we shall see!

On another note, the night time splints, which we've had no problems with getting her to sleep in, rubbed her foot Tuesday night causing a red spot on her heel that still hasn't cleared, but the ones on her ankles have.  Dr. said to not put them back on until that spot is gone.  He stated that she moved around a lot that night causing the friction,and with her skin being so soft that caused the bruising. So, as you can see, its constantly something, but as always, we're pressing through it!!!
