I think right when I know how to help her, things get complicated. This past few weeks I got a large collection of shoes that are all approved. Well than the poor girl ran into the cupboard and a large can fell on her big toe. Tomorrow the doctor wants us to x-ray it and make sure it isn't broken. I don't think it is but bled profusely for a good 12 hrs.
Chris and I suspect it was an excuse not to wear her special shoes with orthotics and get to wear open toed sandals like regular girls her age get to wear. That meant I had to go out and buy the new pair. This is a disaster though b/c she is falling everywhere. She really needs those proper shoes!!! Trying to look on the bright side she has been so proud of her new "sho shoes".
The frustrating thing is that this was sort of the cherry on top on what has been a rough few weeks. We are having a specialist from Albuquerque come down and consult with her early intervention team. I'm excited about that. Hopefully this will lead to more answers and better treatment. I can tell Rachel is frustrated not being able to do what she needs to do.
