WW & SEW: Christmas with Special Needs


Note the percussor in Dan's hand. When it comes to therapy, Christmas morning is like every other. Presents can wait...chest PT can't.

For more Special Exposure Wednesday go to 5 Minutes for Special Needs, and for more Wordless Wednesday go to 5 Minutes for Moms.

I can't imagine what that is like. Happy WW and Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Good Luck

WOW!....I remember those days. I'm so thankful I don't have to do it anymore! Samantha looks like she tolerates/handles it well. Of course when you start it so young (like I did), you don't know any better, because you've been doing it since you can remember. I think that's good..because the older you are when you start chest PT...the harder it is to adjust! Samantha reminds me of me when I was her age and looks a little bit like me too :)

Oh, Katey, this picture shows Sam tolerating it more than what reality is! She actually isn't too bad once we get started, but she's been trying to fight us on it lately. I don't argue with her-I just remind her that she doesn't get to eat until we're done and that's usually motivating. I can see with the blond hair how the 2 of you would resemble one another!

Reilly fights me in the beginning, too. Once I get the vest on her, she sits peacefully through her 20 minutes. I think it is their age & trying to find some independence!

Hugs to such a brave little one. She certainly is a good kid waiting while her therapy is done.

Happy New Year!
