Today, let’s pray for Josiah Huckaby and his family. May God continue to bless them.
After flu/rsv season settled down, we decided to increase Josiah’s therapy appointments. We were going once a month for each therapy (physical, occupational, & speech). Now we go to physical therapy weekly & occupational/speech twice a month. This boy was already making strides but he just didn’t work much during our sessions. They would show him how to do something & he would refuse to work on it but as soon as we’d get home he’d start trying to do it himself. He’s definitely little MR. INDEPENDENT.
Now he works so hard during each session & it shows…after only 1 full month with our new schedule. He can sit in the tripod position for about 30 seconds now…if you can keep him from getting too tickled to hold that position. He can get on his hands & knees. He is really close to getting into a sitting position from his hands & knees. He does sort of an army crawl now…although he has started going backwards a little bit in the crawling position. He definitely favors doing things with his left hand vs right hand. It’s been a new struggle to get him to use both during therapy. He used to use his right hand until he would get frustrated & then swap to his left hand to complete whatever task he was doing. He has been identifying some items on flash cards by picking from 2 cards…which completely blew me away since we had not worked on that at all. He follows instruction during therapy when he’s not giggling & flirting. He is such a wiggle worm & his PT/OT have both mentioned how tired they are after his session…45 mins of trying to get a really strong wiggle worm to do what he doesn’t want to is completely exhausting! I know from experience!!! 😜 To God be the glory!!!
