PT2 March 2014 SNAG-0003Kick it Rhema!

Rhema was back at PT this week and continues to work on standing and moving her legs.  She is so slow to respond to any instruction; I’m hoping to get some answers about that next Monday during her Neuropsych testing.  Rhema just does not respond quickly to any oral instruction, so PT activities really drag.  However, we worked on kicking her legs and weight bearing as best we could.

PT1 March 2014 SNAG-0004  Rhema Pulled Up By Herself….

We are still so unhappy with how her feet are turning inward; we think the rotation is coming more from her knee at this point.  It is so disheartening to still see her lower legs and feet so flaccid and turned when she tries to walk or stand.    Yes, we’ve got to build her back up, but I guess I just expected more of a drastic change that what we have.  We are meeting with her surgeon next week to discuss the outcome of this surgery and see what do we need to do next to continue correcting her legs and feet.  I’m feeling like we will be back in surgery in the Fall; that makes me sad to think of, but if that is needed we will do it.

We continue to covet your prayers for us for wisdom and discernment on how to care for Rhema and continued prayer for ultimate healing for our little girl.  We’ve not lost sight of the desire for healing for her and know all things are possible with our God.  Blessings and many, many thanks to our family and friends who keep us lifted up in prayer.
