Emily had her first session with her vision therapist yesterday. We have enrolled Emily into VIPS (visually impaired preschool) from Louisville. Two of the sweetest ladies came out and they were so good with Emily. She really liked them too. They will come and see Emily at home once a month and then we can go to the school every Wednesday for a mommy and me type class, plus she will be able to socialize with other kids and I will get to meet some other parents going through similar things.
Emily's friend Colin goes there so we will see them too. If you have not gone lately go check out Colin's blog, he is doing some great things!
They brought her a bag of goodies that she just loved!
One of which was a gold shimmery pom pom. I was speaking with one lady and the other was playing with Emily in the floor. I looked over and Emily was holding the pom pom BY HERSELF!
She held it for several minutes too. Emily has never held a toy!
She was looking at their faces a lot too. It is amazing what happens when you don't have seizures for two days.
Yes, she is still doing great with her seizures. It has been almost 48 hours since her last one. She is still having spasms though.
I could not be more proud of her.
Here is a little video of her holding the pom pom.
