Sammy has had a good couple of weeks which have seen him get really confident with his walking - he wanders around the house independently, just loving being able to choose to move....unfortunately he is still struggling with getting up and down, so we have enlisted the help of a XS rugby head gear! Yes he got weird looks, and I had a few questions, to which I just said he was in the Small Blacks training squad! We don't want to wrap him in cotton wool, and we totally get that all kids will have knocks, but he falls like a tree and we really don't want a head injury as well. The physio is popping in for weekly visits and it's amazing how her help is showing us how to help him learn to get up and down safely... so he really is progressing so well.
It's just a usual week for us - nurses visiting, central line dressing change, physio on Thursday, Mainly Music on Tues & Thurs. We've had a re-think about our carer hours and will be having longer hours on a Tues & Thurs and no helpers on Friday. On Friday I am going to just be his Mum and head to a play group at our church. I know Sam will love it, as he is familiar with the place and they also have a designated singing period, and he just loves music. It's amazing having the team of wonderful ladies helping out, but I am looking forward to having Sam and our home to myself for a day.
