It's Official

Friday, April 24, 2009

In the last week I have talked to the Orthotics Clinician, the P.T., and the O.T. It was a unanimous response...

no more helmet for Cayman

Cayman returned to therapy this week for the first without the helmet since February. Her P.T. and O.T. marveled over the difference in Cayman's cooperativeness and happiness.There is a small bit of disappointment that the helmet did not work out.

The clinician suggested referring her to a surgeon that could perform cosmetic surgery to fix her bumpy forehead. But in my opinion, who cares about a bumpy forehead. There are so many things in life that have great value, and my thoughts are outward appearance is not one of them!

It's official...Cayman is beautiful just the way she is!!

No bandage on the head!! Yea! Doesn't she look so strong and grown up. I think she is changing her looks again - not such a baby look but still as beautiful as ever! XOXOXO
