So another busy day at the office began with a visit from Keith. Working closely with the SDR cp team at SLCH, Keith Smith is a globally respected orthotist based here in St Louis. Like so many of the children who have come here for SDR Caitlin had some speedy casts made of her feet to make orthotics from. Keith has a wonderful bedside manner despite catching Caitlin and daddy still asleep.
Later it was breaky (seen twice – sick is part of recovery for most kids) followed by tough physio. A quick trip to the roof garden was rewarded by a chance to feed the pond fish and dip her toes in. Afternoon session saw kt earn a ride on a tricycle around the floor corridors. She ended the session on high cycling herself for most of the way. As ever, she’s stubborn as anything but delights at the “good jarb” phrase coming from Jolyn the lovely physical therapist.
