Today has been quite a tough day, we took Little Gnome to see the OT. What’s tough about that I hear you ask, well it was more what she was saying that hurt.
First she was sat chatting away to me,asking a 101 questions, most of them of them I sort of expected. One i didn’t expect was ” how is his talking?”
“he babbles” I replied
“Well we will get him referred to the Speech and language therapist “. Oh NO !!! here we go again, with loads of appointments.
Next she wanted him to lie on the floor on his belly well he just doesn’t do lying on his belly, but he will happily lie on his back. She put him on his belly and hey he rolled straight over. Then she tried holding his hips down whilst he was on his belly and boy was she holding them down. Thats when she realised there was a problem. Another referral this time to have follow on visits with her, once a week.This was just how Perkie started.
I was asked to stand him up he doesn’t stand only lifts his legs up almost as if he is in pain , another referral this time to see the physiotherapist. Then to end it all we had another referral to the pediatrician. So it looks like the rollercoaster ride is about to start again, the only funny thing about today was at least we will know everyone haahahaha.
How do I feel well, upset, thinking this is yet another one of my lovely children that have problems. On the positive side least they have caught it very early. So the next time you have to take your baby for a developmental check, please do, because if there is anything that’s not right, it can be picked up. Mine all started with the Health Visitor and she noticed he wouldn’t lie on his belly. All aboard for yet another ride , ready …..
