Oh, July

July has come and almost gone. We have had a full month. The first week of the month we had Spina Bifida Camp at The Conductive Learning Center. Whitney had a great week. She loves her conductors and her friends and was very much looking forward to going each morning. We did not have any new things happen developmentally but it was a great mid-summer reminder for her.

We have also been going to Physical Therapy (PT) this summer for 2- 1 hour sessions a week. I have learned that the key to whatever therapy you choose is the therapist. Thankfully we have 2 great PT's that work with her. It has been interesting to get a fresh perspective on Whitney to hear what they think her needs are.

The second week of the month we entertained and had play group after play group. The following week we were down with a summer virus just in time to bounce back for the last week of July. Whew!

We also saw the urologist. Whitney's kidneys are looking good. They have not grown too much in the last six months but he was not concerned. I am very passionate about Whitney's bowel and bladder so I was little nervous for this appointment and what he might recommend. I spend at least an hour of each day working on this with Whitney. It is an investment. (: I know, I am crazy, but at least I have a remodeled bathroom to sit in! All this to explain why this appointment made my month. He complimented me on our progress and success! I do not remember his exact words but he said he was impressed and that we are much further along on this road than most and further than he would have anticipated. I felt like I just received a job promotion with an outstanding review and bonus. It was fantastic!

Whitney start swim lessons next month!
