1st Day

So the first day of J's neuro boot camp has sucked, sucked, sucked.  Did I mention that today sucked?

Tomorrow is another day.  Tap, tap, tap........

Belly crawling is not challenging for her.  She totally has the salamander crawl down pat but she still managed to put a blister on her right big toe.

Homolateral and Tonic Neck patterns are incredibly challenging for her so obviously she REALLY needs those.  She is struggling through it so much.  By lunch I was ready to pinch her head off from all her behaviors.

At therapy today Kristy was doing some brain spotting on the problems she is having with the frustration.  Unconsciously she started doing a sucking motion with her mouth and started grinding her teeth.  Two behaviors that I have not seen before and they were very infantile.  Obviously this is awakening some memories, body memories and really big feelings that she has from her infancy.  I get it but, boy, it sure is frustrating.

My new mantra:

I can make it through a week of tough to reach the other side.  This is better than drawing it out in Chinese water torture fashion.  I can do anything for the next 5 minutes.  I can do this.  She can do this. We will make it.

More tap, tap, tap.....


Orlando, Orlando, Orlando.....it's only a few days away........
