We will be discussing  physical therapy options and corrective measures for Rhema’s feet on Friday, so we are looking forward to that.

In other news, we had two steps forward and one step back today.  They allowed Rhema to go to mommy’s lap again, but at the same time we are having  a slight challenge with the healing of her back.  A small “gap” is now present in the lower back, which has caused some leaking of fluid.  Our understanding is that a “gap” is not a tear or separation that would require surgery at this point, but is something to monitor.  They said this is something that is common with conditions like this.  So far there is no infection or inflammation, but until the neurosurgeon is able to evaluate her condition tomorrow, Rhema is restricted to laying only on her belly again. 🙁
