Last week, my mom and I took all the kids, yes all......to Philly for Olivia's last casting appointment and to get her braces. When I go to Philladelphia, especially the longer trips, I really miss the other kids and want them there. I won't lie, it's not easy traveling 750 miles with 4 kids......
it's a little stressful.....
But I was very thankful they were there and we had a great week together.
Olivia got her new braces and had 2 PT appointments. I really wanted her to get crutches but when she used them she really wasn't using them and the therapist was concerned that she might get caught up in them and really hurt herself. So we went back to the front walker that doesn't give quite as much support as the back walker. Again, she barely uses it......she just needs the security of it, knowing it's there..... She stood alone for minutes, which was amazing, since she hasn't stood or used her legs to stand in over 3 months and the therapist thinks she won't need anything to assist her with walking before too long.
We stopped by Mt Vernon on the way up and met up with friends that live 15 minutes away from us, but we haven't seen in over a year....
Olivia was happy yo stay in the firehouse room again at the Ronald McDonald House.
They love her SO much!
We went to the Jersey shore, it was cold! Taylor was there, being buried by his brother and sister!
We ate Maryland crab....in New Jersey....it was YUMMY!!!!
