it's going swimmingly!
Robb had a visit with his physiatrist yesterday. For those, like me, who never heard of this medical discipline before, a physiatrist is a doctor of rehabilitation. Dr. Dana oversees Robb's case, and is the one who writes the prescriptions for things like Robb's ankle braces or zippy black tricycle.
This time, Robb left the office with a prescription for Aquatic Therapy. Instead of just occasionally messing around in a pool, he will actually work with a therapist.
I'm really pleased about this, because it is only in water that Robb is able to support his weight on his toes. Hopefully, he will be able to exercise some muscles that he has not been able to access previously.
