No change but a fancy new crawl
We have been home from the hospital since Wednesday night, thank goodness. PMC's staff is incredible but there was no sleep for Joey or me. There hasn't been any improvement but no regression either. He has a good range of motion in both arms but maybe 10% of his normal strength in his left hand/arm and probably 50% in his right. When he crawls now he uses his right arm like normal but puts his left foot down and steps with it and scoots his right leg through. It isn't very efficient so he gets a bit frustrated but it is funny to watch. He will stop and look up at me and reach up with his right, telling me to pick him up because he doesn't like this snail's pace. I still think that his right leg is a little off, but no one is concerned. We just have to wait this out. I am going to make an appointment with physical therapy and hopefully have to cancel. But on the plus side, he is super funny and really happy. I had a hard time getting pics of him because he would stop and smile everytime I took one, but here is the general idea.
