This was taken at the Rock, Roll and Bowl fundraiser for Spina Bifida
The summer has been great so far. We have had lots of barbecue's, fishing trips and doctor appts. Where to begin, Avery is doing wonderful. She continues to amaze me on a daily basis. She has 4 teeth now, which all came through in a week, boy was that a rough time. She is finally UTI free. I recently found out about a new therapy. It's called the Anat Baniel Method, if you have a chance I would recommend you check it out. I met several families that have kids with Spina Bifida that have tried this method and have seen amazing results. One boy in particular started this therapy at 6 months old, he is now 18 months old and walking or should I say running without any assistance. No braces, walkers,etc. Of course this got my attention. I went to one of the sessions to see what it was all about. I was pretty excited to get Avery started and see how this could help her. This type of therapy is not covered by the insurance. So we are paying out of pocket. Her sessions are $50 an hour.. I have found myself selling things to make sure she is able to get this experience. She has had 2 sessions so far and will have 3 more this week. After her first session I noticed Avery lifted her behind up to help me change her. She had never done this before. After her second session she was able to get from a laying position to a sitting postion. This of course didn't happen immediately, but after a few days we started noticing her doing different things. Avery is now scooting across the floor.
