Just a very quick post to let you know that we're off to Fredericton (90 minute drive away) for Botox tomorrow. Ben will get 2 to 4 injections into each hamstring while under oral anesthetic. The appointment is at 1pm. We need to be there by noon to be admitted into paediatrics.
He is allowed to eat breakfast but nothing after that. That may be difficult but hopefully not too bad.
I'm a bit anxious about it, but excited at the same time. He needs this. He really does. I'm also anxious but excited about the serial casting for his calves in September. His walking has deteriorated alot over the last few months. He's always on his toes. Always. And he falls onto his knees quite often when using his walker. I hate that. I miss the great gait he used to have.
That said...he still loves his walker. And uses it more and more. He's even more confident using it outside on uneven ground. I can't wait til his hamstrings and calves are looser so he can do even better with it.
Wish us luck!
