Sam is a brand new PT, which makes him eager to work with Sadie, but also awkward in handling her. You can really tell the difference between someone like Tami or Denise, who have been doing this for years, and Sam, who's brand new. He'll get the hang of it though, and being in a clinic/center, he has a lot of resources to draw from, seasoned veterans to learn from, and equipment to use.
|Sam and Sadie working on sitting|
|Trying to get her to push up on her arms|
|Yay Sadie!! I don't think she's been in this position for a LONG time!|
|This was right before she threw up...the first time|
|She liked this, the idea is to stretch out her back and shoulders to prevent scoliosis from developing due to rounding|
Anyway, we'll be seeing Sam on Mondays and Fridays. He's only about 15 minutes away, and I'm excited to see how far he can bring Sadie in her physical development!
