I'm thankful for...

..modern medical technology. There have been so many advances in medical care and treatments, and Sophia is getting the benefit from it. Her new hinged braces make a huge difference in her walking and stability. She continues to make such great progress with physical and occupational therapy. And, we just began Botox injections. Who knew? Botox for Cerebral Palsy! I am hopeful that the injections will work together with the braces and therapy to help Sophia become even more mobile and steady.

I am also beyond thankful for Sophia's medical team. Her neurologist, pediatrician, therapists, neurodevelopmental pediatrician, orthotist and others are so wonderful and take such great care of our little angel!

p.s. I'll also add a great big thanks for insurance and TEFRA right here. These two things take away a lot of the stress of dealing with additional medical needs. Even with all the paperwork!
