Ella met her new physical therapist today. Although we did not get a lot of work done, it did give us a chance to meet her.

At first, Ella was fine. Once some of the work began (we were showing her what we worked on during our sessions in Florida), Ella started to figure out what was going on. She decided that she didn’t like it, so all it would take was a glance at the PT and she would melt down.

Overall, Ella did much better than I have seen her do in the past with new therapists. Even though she had her temper tantrums, it took a lot less time for her to calm down. Hey, that is a step in the right direction.

I am excited because it seems like we may have met someone that not only knows physical therapy, but is truly interested in seeing Ella take the next steps. Once we get into the true visits each week with more focused therapy, we will see how the Bun responds.

And finally, Ella had to try on some new shoes that Grandma West sent her. Cute for the summer time…

Ella, You look great in the new shoes that Grandma sent you. I am hoping that your new friend and you keep making that steady progress forward. I can understand that it seems new cause you had some time off with the trip but you will catch back up quickly. I will see you tommorow. Love,Grandpa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi there! Just getting caught up with everything that’s happened lately (I had two sets of relatives visiting). Tina, this sounds like a difficult transision for you and it’s been a difficult year and a half. Someday, you will look back at this time and it will be unbelieveable to you what you’ve accomplished in such a short time period. My guess is that you are exhausted now because you’ve been running on adrenaline and worry. My thoughts and prayers are with you and I continue to pray for the rentors you deserve. Love to you, Josh, and Ella Laura M.
