We haven't had appointments except to adjust James's AFO's; his legs are gaining strength and muscle mass and he is getting stronger every day. A small adjustment was made to the calf positioner to make room for his growth.
Coming up we will do flu shots and the IFSP (Individualized Family Service Plan) for Early Intervention. We will be setting up goals and services for our next 6 months of in-home therapy for the babies.
