Days 1 and 2 post-cast (A.K.A. day 22-23 since starting KKI)

Allie got her cast off on Monday and has had two fun days of post-cast therapy.  She has 5 more days of intensive bimanual therapy and then we're done!  

Yesterday revolved around Allie playing with two of the visiting therapy dogs, Matilda and Olive.  They were two wonderfully behaved dalmatians and, like with Lewis the first therapy dog, she had a great time with them.  Here is Olive's business card:


Today, Allie started off the day at aquatic physical therapy.  She was so excited to go to "swim class" and she talked about it the whole drive to KKI.  After a fun hour in the pool, she took a shower and got herself dressed. Her OTs are trying to make some progress on Allie self-dressing and it seems to be paying off.  Then, she got to do craft time with her OTs and then play in an open kids' gym.  I only got photos of the gym time, but here are some of the fun things they did.

Playing on the crazy swing:

Crawling through the swinging tube:

And, playing in her personal ball pit:
She had a lot of fun but was totally exhausted by the end of it.  She fell asleep in the car so I brought her home instead of dropping her off at school.  We're currently enjoying a lazy afternoon of Curious George watching while cuddling on the couch.

We are all burned out.  Only one more week to go!
