Keanut Gump

You know that's what Byron calls Kean-- ever since he got leg braces.
Kean's ankles are super floppy and he's been hyper extending his knees.
This morning, an Orthopedist made a home visit to check him out and re-measure.
Yes, the parade of appointments never ends.
 The good news is he's getting rid of the higher braces that keep him from
hyper extending his knees-- he's improved in that department.
The bad news is his feet are turning in more, so he's getting a more
aggressive foot brace that will go up to the ankle only.
While we are talking appliances, I got Kean to wear his hearing aid
for a solid 15 to 20 minutes while we read stories and sang songs.
I'm trying to make it a fun time for him (and keep him distracted from yanking it out).
I've really been lax in that department since he got sick.
He had a decent day-- wasn't into doing any therapy whatsoever
and threw up a few times... but he seemed much happier than yesterday
So I think he's getting back to his normal.
