January 27th, 2010

It's been another busy week. Cindy Jones (Assistive Technology Specialist) with SKIL (Southeast Kansas Independent Living Resource Center), came to the house yesterday to set the computer up to use switches. She also introduced us to a free website (www.HelpKidzLearn) full of fun games that can be played with switches or just a mouse click. Check it out! It's a cute website.

Below is a picture of Kinnick playing 5 little monkeys. It didn't take her any time at all to figure it out. She has minimal vision, but learned to wait until the noise stopped to press the button. We're going to work with Carver tomorrow.

Today, we went for Carver's final fitting in his new custom fit "Zippie" tilt-n-space wheelchair. It has plenty of room for growth.

I didn't do a very good job of putting on the ankle supports. I was just so excited, I had to get a picture.

I just took these pictures. It's late for Carver, so he's looking a little sleepy.

Kinnick got her 3rd set of Synagis shots today. That was a blast. She knows what's going to happen now just by the smell of the alcohol. I feel so sorry for her.

Tomorrow, Carver is going to be seen by Dr. Varenhorst, retinologist. His eye doesn't seem to be healing after his last surgery. It looks like it's infected. If not, then his sinus infection is causing an infection in the eye. I'm a little stressed over it.

It was really neat to get to meet you and your kids at seating clinic yesterday! Our little one is very excited about her new wheels!

Wow Shanon your right, I love the tilt n space it looks like there is a lot of space to grow into but also looks like it holds Carver well. I will be looking into that one.

Thanks for the tip on the website. I brought it up for Lily last night and she is loving it.
