Last week Cayla was given a Family Pass to Adventure World from TCCP for being a Champion in The Wheelie Big Challenge but as she is too short for most of the rides we sold the pass and took the kids to Aqwa instead. The kids had lots of fun and we learned about a cheeky octopus that climbed into the fish tank next door at night-time and ate all the fish and then climbed back into his own tank!
Fourth week of serial casting for Cayla… this school holiday has been pretty boring as we have to stay away from sand and water but will plan it better for the next time. We took Cayla’s cast of yesterday as we had an appointment with Dr Langdon at Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) in the afternoon. This cast was only on for about three days but it’s always nice to give her a bath and wash her hair before the next cast goes on.
Mike took the afternoon off and came with to PMH for this appointment, as we have both learned it’s better to have two sets of ears when lots of information is being passed around! This appointment was for Dr Kate Langdon, who is Cayla’s pediatrician, to write a letter to help with the application for the school we have chosen for Cayla next year. As we are outside the catchment area for this school we need letters from both a pediatrician and also TCCP to go with the application and hopefully that will work out well. I have said it before but will say it again, Kate Langdon is an amazing person and definitely the right person in the right job. She is just so lovely and nice and we always feel really good after we have seen her. Also present at this meeting was Nadine Smith who was the physio we met a couple of weeks ago at the Hip Surveillance appointment also at PMH. She knows Cayla’s physio Megan at TCCP and information from our appointments at PMH will be forwarded to TCCP as well which is great as I never remember all the information said on the day and/or to pass it on…!
We have been waiting for an appointment with neurologist Dr Simon Williams (also at PMH) quite a few months now but the date we had scheduled in March got cancelled. The next scheduled appointment is in June when we are away so not sure when we get to meet this man everyone speak so highly of :) But never mind, the epilepsy test we did last year came back normal so not much to discuss with him really. He was however meant to prescribe a medication to reduce drooling but yesterday Dr Langdon did this for us which is great! I can’t wait to try it but will wait a couple of days as Cayla is sick at the moment. So just under a week left of serial casting and next Friday we’re seeing Andrew at Orthodic Solutions to try on Cayla’s new AFOs and to review her need for a fixed or hinged AFO on the right foot.
Below are photos from our visit to Aqwa last weekend and some pics taken by Cayla during a serial casting session at TCCP :)
