Proud Parents!

So as many of you know, Gracie's evaluation was this morning. Her service coordinator, an Occupational, and a Physical Therapist came to the house to meet Grace. She did SOOOO GREAT! She excelled in most areas tested both cognitively and physically. She even tested older (in the 10 and 11 month range) in some areas which they seemed very pleased with. They said they were very impressed with her and that she would be any therapists dream come true.

We worked on some short term and long term goals that we would like to work on through PT. Their recommendation for now is PT once a week for 45-60 minutes! PRAISE GOD! I asked about OT and they said that at this age they overlap and that if the PT thinks she needs it then she will recommend it and we can get that started too.

Overall it was just very encouraging. Of course we think Gracie is wonderful and can do anything because we are her proud parents, but it's so nice to hear it come from trained professionals who work with kids for a living. She was a ham..just like her daddy!

I just want to thank all of you for prayers and for continued prayers for Gracie. We have her blood work and her EKG this month and then we meet with the neurologist in March to go over all of it. We are just so thankful and praising God for her progress and for everything she IS able to do. We are sooo proud of her!
