Yesterday UPS knocked on our door and had a very large box with Dylan's name on it. Inside was a reverse walker and a set of very small, but perfectly sized Suresteps! These were a gift from Dylan's sweet friend Norrah. Norrah had grown out of the Suresteps and no longer needed the walker, because she is walking on her own, and she wanted Dylan to have them. I feel so very blessed and fortunate to have Norrah and her family in our life. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. I hope one day to be able to meet all of these friends in person but for now email and blogging will have to do.
Dylan can definitely rock the pink swirls! The Surestep orthotics are something that I have been fighting to get approved through CCS and have had very little success. They feel that because they already approved his DAFOs (which are also orthotics that wrap around his foot and go all the way up to just under his knee - (that he hates, mind you and cries whenever he has them on) they don't need to approve anything else right now. My position on it is that is, well... lets just say I do not agree.
Trying to see what this is all about. He did really great standing and holding on. The reverse walker will be Dylan's next step after he masters the gait trainer (which we should have in about four weeks). He still needs more pelvic stability and strength but I am stoked that we have one now and don't have to go through the hassle with the insurance company and CCS in the future.
