We went to the spina bifida clinic on Friday and it went very well. Here is a run down of the people we saw:
Occupational Therapist- She did not observe any delays.
Physical Therapist- She affirmed what we are working on at home is appropriate.
Dietitian- No concerns
Neurologist- No concerns
Social worker- Encouraged getting involved in an on-line support network but thought we were a 'healthy' family.
Orthopaedic- She is not worried about scoliosis. Whitney's left leg turns in at the hip and it may need to be surgically corrected down the road. She wants us to get a stander for her soon. We also were able to retire Whitney's night time AFO's!
Physiatrist- No concerns
I am so thankful we can have all of these appointments in one day. The wonderful thing is that 3 of them wanted to see us back in 6 months so we are able to do it in one day again. It makes life so much easier.
We are currently in need of a used stander for Whitney. If you know of any laying around we would love to put it to good use.
