Rarely do I let 10 days go by without updates! I feel like I haven't sat down in the past week and a half (: So let's start with the good stuff. Evie had physical therapy on Wednesday and it went fabulous again! We had two Occupational Therapists, Evie's case manager, and her Physical Therapist. There was talk about getting her back to the orthopedic surgeon earlier than February to look into a procedure where they would "clip" the tendons on the back of her feet, to lengthen them so she would be able to flex her feet to stand/balance herself. What an exciting idea! As one of Evie's therapists said "we didn't expect her to be sitting so soon!"
Grandma Dellie was in town that same day so we went out to the lake to put up her Christmas tree. The girls love Grandma Dellie AND the lake, so it was a fun afternoon!
We had Thanksgiving at Lyla's school on Thursday, and although you weren't supposed to bring siblings, no one seems to be able to tell Evie that she can't come along (: So we enjoyed Thanksgiving meal together with some of Lyla's new friends, nothing like Deli Turkey, Jello Jigglers, Fruit Salad, Popcorn, and Cookies!
On Saturday we went to our first LPA (Little People of America) event! It was at the Amazing Pizza Machine, and it was so fun to meet some amazing families of kids and adults who have either a form or dwarfism or a skeletal dysplasia like Evie. No one else has hypophosphatasia but that was expected! I have been researching local groups, like the Omaha Down's Syndrome Parent's Network, to find out where Evie and our family would fit the best and I'm thinking this is it. They only have a few events a year, but when Evie gets older there will be events regionally and nationally that she can attend if she wants. What a neat opportunity! We want Evie to have the support, we want to have the support of parents, and we want Lyla to have the support of siblings.
Lastly, the girls both have colds again. I guess that time of year is starting up. So we stayed home on Sunday and put up the Christmas tree! I will put up a preview of our Christmas collage, but you'll have to wait until the Holidays for the full thing!
Love you friends, I'll be back sooner next time! Although it is pretty nice to have "boring" updates! (:
