NOW I CAN.

Cole's friend Bertrand went to Intensive Therapy last week (the same one Cole goes to)...and look what they found!  A GIANT picture of Cole going up in the gym.  That is Bertrand's little sis & daddy next to the photo.
I realized that I hadn't even posted him going to Intensive Therapy....so, here are some pictures.  "Now I Can" is an AMAZING Intensive Therapy program....it is very expensive if your insurance doesn't help to pay for it like ours...but it is SO worth it.  Out of ALL the therapy we have done, this has been the most beneficial.  We stopped doing the other therapy at the hospital because our insurance wouldn't pay for that either and it was $2000 for 3 sessions.  So we decided to try the Intensive Therapy that Bertrand's wonderful mom recommended.  I met other mom's who did the Intensive Therapy with their children & saw a lot of improvements in their children in a short time rather then a long time of the other therapy they had tried as well.  It helps if you do the 3 week program, but we didn't have the money to do that long of one...so we did smaller sessions here and there.  After Cole did this therapy, his balance has been AMAZING!!! And he learned how to do stairs the same week of starting therapy.
This is the "monkey cage".
I don't know how to explain how it works...other then it
works their "core balance" but it works wonders!



See the Blue tape on his feet...he also has it on his back and they do it on his hands as well.  It is called Kenisio Taping....which is therapeutic taping....I HIGHLY recommend it!

  2. Kenisio Taping IS amazing...isn't it? Jace would get his legs wrapped for his bowleggedness before surgery. Its amazing what JUST that tape can help with!

    I can pretty safely say that the extreme of his leg turning in was more neurological because he doesn't have any more issues!
