Today’s Weigh In and The Weekend Ahead

Today, Charlie had an appointment with her pediatrician.  Charlie was weighed and examined as usual.  Afterwards, we discussed the visit with the dietitian, the results from the swallow study, and the upcoming appointment with the developmental pediatrician concerning AFOs (ankle foot orthotics).

Despite the progress Charlie has made, her regular providers’ consensus is that AFOs would be beneficial for her. However, the ultimate opinion on the matter is left up to her developmental pediatrician. Charlie has an appointment with him in a couple of weeks. The AFOs will be prescribed and made that week if he agrees.

This is off subject:  This weekend I am attending a March of Dimes function out of town. If you’ve been wondering why today’s post has been brief, it is because I am busy packing and tending to last minute details.

Many of my readers have expressed interest in the function this weekend. I plan on posting this weekend as time allows. Maybe, I can convince some of those interested readers to attend next year’s function.
