Ben had a follow-up appointment today with the Neurologist who originally diagnosed his CP. We haven't seen him since that day just over 6 months ago now.
The appointment went well. He examined Ben, got him to play with some toys and asked us tons of questions about his development. He was quite pleased with his progress and told us that Ben's legs (hamstrings, calves, etc.) should not get any tighter now. He said that the tightness maxes out at about 18 months. I faintly remember hearing that before, but I had totally forgotten. To me, that was very good news.
He doesn't see any surgeries in Ben's near future. But he said we would revisit that topic in 6 months when he sees Ben again. He thought that eventually Ben may need heel-cord lengthening surgery and maybe even Dorsal Rhizotomy. But it was simply to early to tell.
So, all in all, it was a good appointment. No big news...which these days, I take as a good thing.
