Re: Bobbi does nees caps surg...advice?

<t>Maia had the caps procedure and we had no choice - she was dislocated and she was in a lot of pain. Did it help? Absolutely! We were warned in advance that it would have to be redone probably one more time -so it became part of our plan - and they were right. It took a while to regroup afterwards...

Re: picnics

<t>the other point I wanted to make is that I believe it's REALLY important to have gatherings JUST for the social aspect. There is SO MUCH value in just meeting the community - especially for the kids who need to know that there are others out there like them. (without the draw of having an evaluat...

Re: picnics

<t>Just an FYI for clarity and perception purposes.... (not meant to start anything and certainly not meant in a negative way) <br/> <br/> Private people or local (and independent) bpi groups are setting up the picnics/gatherings. They can invite whoever they want to invite...including all sorts of ...

Re: Gymnastics

<t>Hi Chris - I want to share our gymnastic experience with you...<br/> <br/> Maia signed up for Little Gym - a kids gymnastics program and was in it for two years. She made great gains.

Re: sensory stimulation by use of vibrator

<t>Jenniffer - I'd just be careful about not using it up in the incision area or near the area where the nerves are first starting to grow in - just makes logical sense that you don't want to shake things up post op. If I were you - I'd use other things for now (brushes/fabrics/combs, etc.) and save...

Re: Book on Breathing

<t>Hi liz - thanks for the input - you did notice that I said "go to a specialist" quite a few times right??<br/> <br/> We're going back to our specialist in a month - Maia had had enough in the last 4 hour visit...and now I have new questions formulated. <br/> <br/> Can you tell me the physiologica...
