August 4th, 2010
Carver was fitted for new DAFO's yesterday. Thank God! I absolutely hate his AFO's. Every since we got his AFO's, they've been a pain. When we got the AFO's, they put an articulator in the heel of them. Well, Carver has so much tone, he just pushes his heel out of place - making the AFO's worthless. Now, his ankles are tight. So, back to plain old DAFO's. We loved our DAFO's. We NEVER had a problem keeping them on correctly. In fact, Carver did so well in his original DAFO's, they wanted to give him the articulators. This is kind of a step up. This is when the Orthapedic doctor moved him to AFO's. Carver's Orthapedic doctor doesn't like DAFO's, so we had to work around her to get them again. We just asked to find our own supplier - instead of using hers. I can't wait to get them. They should arrive in a couple of weeks.
Carver seen his ENT today. So far, so good. The infection seems to be clearing up - if not gone. We see the ENT again in 4-6 wks. Hopefully then, we'll talk about surgery to put the right CI back in.
Other then this, we're preparing for school to start again (home bound), and preparing for our trip back to MI to see the eye specialist.
