Happy #13 on May 13th #Cincinnati Childrens. Molly’s trachea was clear and we are discharged after 18-mos. and 13 MLB’s. In fact, Molly’s air pathway actually expanded over the last 6 months. We are so grateful for the wonderful care and expert skills of Dr. Michael Rutter.
We celebrated the weekend in Indianapolis with friends and also made a quick run through Tim’s Miami of Ohio in Oxford. Leaving Cincy was a bit emotional. Its been a safe place for us for so long. Thank you CCHMC, Dr. Rutter and Cincinnati, we are ever so thankful and will miss our visits.
Our work continues in Dallas. Molly has graduated out of her DayNeuro, but the therapy continues. Molly needs to build stamina and hip strength on her walking. She is constantly getting blisters on her AFO when she does walking of any significant distance. To help control the inward rotation we are encouraging her to walk like a Duck. Quack, Quack.
On her arm, we are continuing our visits to Neurological Recovery in FTW. The drive is a beating but so worth it. The staff is so innovative and energetic. Constantly trying to incorporate all she can of her arm to facilitate acts of daily living. We may also try constraint therapy this summer. To be effective you have to restrain the good arm for 2-6 hours a day. Brutal.
We are so happy for the progress of recovery of her trachea. It will allow us to focus on other recoveries. Best Mothers Day present ever!!
Thank you all for your prayers. God Bless!!
Jill & Tim
