Re-connecting with therapy

image Allie continues to amaze. Today we had intake appointments with our new occupational and physical therapists. At nine we met with Susan, our new O.T., at ten we had breakfast across the street at the International House of Pancakes, and then at eleven, we met with Joan, Allie's new P.T. All three appointments (IHOP included) were quite therapeutic.

Great first impressions were made all the way around. Allie made a good impression on them, the therapists impressed us, and IHOP with the un-ending supply of pancakes found a permanent place in my heart.

It's been a bit of an uphill battle getting into a new therapy routine. We were hoping to find therapists that could come to the house, but we've found that it's been good to get Allie out of the house, into the car, and up to Jupiter to this children's therapy facility. There was a steady stream of little kids coming and going and Allie was captivated. She did her best to be noticed and make new friends. She's much too social to keep at home.

We miss our Northern California therapy team, but we couldn't have asked for a better team than the one we've assembled here in South Florida. We are infinitely glad to be back home.
