Re: Mcroberts ?????

McRobert's is when the legs are hyperflexed toward your head, so picture your knees being bent, someone holding onto your foot and pushing it back toward your head with your knees wide apart. Does this make sense? You can google it and see images of the maneuver as well for a better visual. It sound...

Re: FIRST EVER 5K SARATOGA, NY

Since proceeds are going to benefit UBPN, making a check out to them would be appropriate I would surmise.

Re: Bookbag weight?

Amber has always used a rolling backpack. She longs to carry it like "all the other kids" but we wanted to make sure she started using it while young so it's habitual to use it rather than it being a change when she gets older. She's only in 2nd grade, so no big books to be traveling back and forth ...

Re: Shriner's

Things went splendid at Amber's doctor appointment. She needs a 5 year post-op MRI, but we can have that done locally, and hopefully without anesthesia this time since she's much older. Her elbow didn't need a new splint. He said a few kids had come into the clinic complaining of pain just that day ...

Shriner's

Off to Shriner's in the AM with Amber for a check-up. Wish us luck with the check-up and weather conditions. I believe the weather should be clear, but it is winter afterall!

It seems so simple to have figured out the shower and bottle thing now, but how would you have known in re...

Re: How many kids have sensory issues

We haven't run into any problems with sensory issues that she complains about. She experiences some diminished ability to notice a sunburn and then it's flaming red before you know it in comparison to the other arm. Nothing else.
