Day One of CME therapy

Today went better then we could have ever imagined. We were expecting Addison to scream the whole time which could induce seizures and make her very irritable. Thankfully, she actually smiled her way through the first session! We go to Blue Balloon everyday twice a day at 10 and 3. Today our first session was the initial assessment. She told us that she would be focusing on trunk control as her head control is pretty good. She feels that the work she needs on head control will come along with the trunk.
For the first half of the week she just works on Addison and for the second half of the week we start the training and video taping. Simone our therapist is the most highly trained CME provider in the world besides the man who created it. We feel very fortunate to have her as our therapist.
Addison not looking happy but she really didn't cry

We need to build one of these tables as soon as we get back

She loved this position

She does very well with it

These videos show some of the exercises that Addison does at Therapy


We spent the rest of the day at the Yorkdale Mall. It is huge and we enjoyed shopping. We went to the Rainforest Cafe for supper which didn't turn out to be as good as we had hoped but was designed very neat.

We spent the rest of the evening in the hotel. I did our laundry after going to four different floors to find it! It is 10:50 and Addison is still awake....yawn Hopefully we will get some sleep soon.
