26 Weeks

Now we are in the 26th week.  It's pretty exciting getting closer and closer to "safety".  I'm sure we probably seem overly obsessed with our pregnancy progress, but anyone who has had a preemie would understand.  Every day can make all the difference!  

I can't believe it's April!  Yippeee!

Over the past several weeks we've been working with one of Abby's PT's (physical therapist) to get her fitted for a new gait trainer.  We finally settled on the Kid Walk model and actually filled out the order form this week!  Hopefully it will show up anywhere from 6-8 weeks.  

She seemed to do pretty well in it during our practice sessions.  It has some neat features such as bouncing action, hip sway side to side during walking, and large wheels for the child to push themselves.  She obviously can't propel herself yet using the wheels, but she does put her hands on them and shows interest.

Tomorrow we go back to the neurologist to have another ambulatory EEG placed.  Abby will wear the wires all weekend to record seizure activity.  Hopefully it will pick up what we have been seeing lately.  Abby has done better this week and has had fewer seizures.  Although this sounds weird, I hope she has those strange seizures during the test so the doctor can give us some answers and we can form a good treatment plan.
