Andi - our doc recommended eucerin, cetaphil or aquaphor (we got sent home with a sample of eucerin & cetaphil)
Update on Elia's PT appt: (and sad woe-is-me rant)
So Elia's appt in general went well. The physical therapist was happy with her standing, sitting, and rolling over, and as I expected wants to see her again in six weeks to ensure progress is continuing. One thing really bothered me though... an Occupational Therapist came in at one point to offer advice on Elia's hand skills (which to be honest, I don't think she needs, she reaches, grabs, and feeds herself with the best of them). The OT made an almost offhanded comment about how OTs and PTs don't diagnose, they just work with the symptoms and it's just been eating at me ever since we left. I don't know if I interpreted her statement wrong, but I felt like she was suggesting Elia should be evaluated and/or diagnosed with something (of course, of course, my horrible brain worries about cerebral palsy. how could it not? She has practically all the risk factors you guys, she was born early, needed breathing assistance, was a twin, I was on magnesium sulfate and had preeclampsia... they are all risk factors). I usually am able to not let it bother me, even if she has CP I think it would be pretty mild considering the progress and strength she has already (and the PT flat out said she has fine muscle tone, is neither too floppy or too tight). I dunno, it's just when I start thinking about it, it really tears me up. Good thing the girls are both taking a nap now, I need a good cry.
How did I get so behind!?!? Just a couple of personals
Ash - a getaway day just for you!? That sounds fabulous! I want to do that!!!! lol. I'm a huge kindle fan too. I use the kindle app on my phone even so I always have a book to read if I'm waiting at the dr office or standing in a long line.
Sandy - sorry about the yeast infection. No fun. And I'm not sure if I said a YAY for you getting to TTC sooner than expected. So... YAY!
