Emotionally worn out

I cried at therapy yesterday. There, I said it. I am emotionally drained by all the things my boys are doing. The therapy is so wonderful, but it makes me really really tired. (Them too.) I am so nervous about what will happen next. Will we do more? Will they qualify for continuing services with the sd? We had an OK session Wed and an awesome one Thurs. I am overwhelmed though. Brushing, trips back and forth, trying to do all these things at home to incorporate what they're doing there...

I am tired.

I am thankful every day that my kids got the chance to do what they are doing. To be able to try the service model Dr. Lucy Jane Miller has pioneered. To have found a place where the therapy is cutting edge and is making my kids brains' grow and stretch. When we talked yesterday, our OT said the boys have made greater strides in these 4 weeks than many kids they see make in a year.

So what's next? We're waiting on someone to pick up our call for a PT consult/eval. The boys will probably get some shoe inserts/orthodic type things. We'll see if Jack will need additional PT for building core strength, and to continue working on his postural issues.

Thinking about you guys these days. Each and every day is a new day and the boys will excel in their own time. Hang in there! Love, hugs, and prayers coming your way!

Sending all positive thoughts and vibes. I thought it would be easier once the twins began walking.

I was wrong.
