So Anthony is going to start with a new OT soon, but every time you start with a new therapist (OT is occupational therapist, sorry), they have to do an evaluation and because they are not doctors, they have to have Anthony's doctor sign the prescription for it. Anyway, they send me a copy of his evaluation and it's so depressing. I mean, how old will he be, how long will I know all I know, before it doesn't bug me so much that they write this stuff down about him? It's one thing to live your life, and another thing entirely for people to talk about it, or heaven forbid, write it down. It feels so different.
Anyways. It says his tone is hypotonic, which means he has low muscle tone. That's probably because he doesn't use his body like he should, I guess? There are 10 "underlying impairments" in which he is "moderately impaired" and just one that he is "severely impaired". He's severely impaired when it comes to Left Right Discrimination. There is something funky with his vision, I know, but I will be damned if I can figure out what we'll do about it.
Anyway, he has year long-goals, so that's good. There are many good things about starting with this new OT. I really liked her, she's been at OT for 20 years, the office is very close to our house, they have appointments in the evenings, it's one more thing to do with just Anthony. It will be good but it's hard to read, every time, all the things that they think are wrong with my sweet baby.
