And so it begins…

Wahoo! After a month and a half of waiting, paperwork and meetings Alex officially starts his physical therapy! Due to his therapy sessions I have decided to not go back to my traditional day job and will just continue to run my business as the “Worlds Best Dog Trainer” at night and on the weekends. Ironically enough I too have physical therapy tomorrow for those of you who don’t know, I have started on the quest to be a runner and I am already on a sabbatical due to complexly tearing a ligament in my ankle. The doctor is not only worried about the torn ligament but my Achilles Tendon snapping and rolling up into my leg. The funny thing about all of this is I tend to roll my ankle often and fall which has made quite a few friends die of laughter. I get 6 weeks of P.T. (with a super cute therapist. Sorry Scotty!!) and if that does not work I will have to have surgery, just what I need, another scar!
So, we are praying that Alex does well with his therapist and starts to catch up to babies his age. The meetings that he had had with her he seems to really responds well to her. We like her too, she came highly recommended by one of my good friends (hi hot feet) who has a son with Downs Syndrome.

By the way, I MISS MY AUNTIES!!!!

I am off to pick up doggie poop from the backyard before it rains. Yuck, soggy poo is not fun poo.

Well, you take the good and you take the bad. Sorry about the news on the running side of things but as far as your sons therapy goes that is great! We will certainly be praying for both though... Drive On!

Go easy on that ankle. You don't want that snapping up on you! I hate PT, my Orthopedic wants me to do PT for my knees. I dislocated my left knee for the third time a few weeks ago.
