Kennedy's immune system is much stronger than Drake's; therefore, she is not on as strict of a lockdown as Drake. She is eating up the opportunities to spend some quality time out in the "real world" with her daddy! I love seeing the two of them together! This gives me time to work with Drake on his therapies, and it is a wonderful opportunity for Kennedy to spend time with her daddy. Daddy said she has been very well behaved on both of her outings.
Speaking of Drake...he amazed both of his home therapist today with his improvements! He turned himself from his side to his tummy and raised his head up for several seconds. He also grabbed his beads (marti gras beads used for therapy) for almost 2 minutes and pulled back on them during repeated games of tug-of-war with me.
On Thursday we had a meeting about Drake's annual qualification for MDCP (Medically Dependent Children's Program - this is what allows Drake to have At-Home Nursing). We enjoyed meeting with his case worker and the state nurse, and they liked seeing how much Drake has changed in the passed year, too. Ideally we would love for Drake to improve so much that he will no longer qualify for the program; however, in the mean time, we are forever grateful to have the help which this program provides to our family.
