Our Hope

By sharing our story and our experiences with this birth injury we will hopefully educate people. Knowledge is power. Our hope is that you will read this blog, share it with your friends, and they will share with their friends. Then in some small way we have prevented other families from having to go through what we have.

Original Kinesio Blog

I have been so busy I almost forgot to look for this!  Here is the blog post over at the Original Kinesio Blog that has Jadon in it!  I love the pic they used!!

Original Kinesio Blog 

They contacted me about a month ago and said that they loved the blog.  They asked if they could use some of the pics from Jadon's Journey that have Jadon using Kinesio tape therapy in some of their publications.  I agreed!  They told me they would include a link back to our blog.  What a great way to continue to spread the word about Brachial Plexus injuries and educate people!

Lovin' This Reach!!

We had a great therapy session today!  Jadon has really been working hard in therapy lately!  His therapist is so impressed with his progress.  I got some great pictures today of Jadon reaching for the bubble wand.


I could look at these pictures all day long! I can't wait to see the progress he makes after his shoulder/tendon transfer surgery! Exciting things!

Therapy and Other Stuff

Jadon has been doing great in therapy.  His occupational therapist, Ellen, had her baby so she is on maternity leave.  I was a little worried about how he would handle the transition to another new therapist but he did great.  It really helped that Karen was there for several therapy sessions along with Ellen before she left for maternity leave.  Jadon has been working really hard in therapy and his therapists are really good at making sure that there are new and fresh activities each week.  Jadon's hand function continues to be pretty weak so we have been working on fine motor activites.  Little peg puzzles and blocks are perfect.  I keep praying that his hand continues to strengthen.

Jadon continues to use righty more and more without us reminding him which is wonderful.  It is important the he continues to try and use righty for everything he possibly can.  Here are some pictures from last weeks therapy session.  He is chillin' in the bean bag chair and playing with legos.

Surgery time is closing in.  Only a couple more weeks.  I have clothes in about three different sizes.  I am just not sure what is going to fit over the casts after surgery.  It should be interesting packing things in his normal size for before surgery and then things in a couple different sizes for after surgery.

The closer is get the more and more anxious I get!
