Today, Rebecca has been home with us for 4 months. She has made tremendous strides in such a short amount of time, but of course, has so far to go. We were able to get tubes placed in her ears about a month ago, after battling ear infections and fluid, and her speech and language have really seemed to take off since that time. We jumped through hoops to get a referral meeting and then evaluation for services through the school system. We went today for the eligibility meeting, and she qualifies for speech & language as well as occupational therapy. She will be getting 2 sessions a week, 30 minutes each, of language, and 1 session, 30 minutes, a week of OT.
Rebecca also started preschool last week and loves it! She is going two half-days a week, and she is in the same class as Henry and William. We are looking nervously toward regular kindergarten in the fall. (The boys won't start K until fall 2009.)
We are awaiting the scheduling of her heart procedure at UAB. We are looking to have that done some time in March.
