We were so excited a few months back to see that Sophia is able to tolerate being on a wedge for short periods of time, you see since Sophia has been six months old she could only tolerate being flat and her head to the side, other wise she would choke… but as she approached her second birthday we tried her on her therapeutic wedge and amazingly she was tolerating it. Of course we were nervous and monitored her at all times but she impressed us so much, we could also see she was enjoying her new view, because she was elevated we could see her looking around her room at everything she maybe wasn’t able to see before, as parents to an sma child Vinny and I couldn’t be prouder of our little girl, this milestone was so huge for Sophia and for us, to other parents watching their child take their first steps fills their eyes with pride and tears, but to us this was just the same. Sophia tries so hard everyday to try new things and even though we always take new things slow, she always surprises us with everything she can do!!! My dream one day is to maybe see Sophia be able to sit up and maybe drive a power chair, either way I am so proud of my “Pookah” !!! Sophia recently was measured and received her TLSO, this device supports her back while in an upright or somewhat upright position, here is Sophia wearing her new TLSO!!!!!
