Visiting the Rehab Doctor

We went back up to the hospital yesterday.  Angelee had a follow-up appointment with the rehab doctors - but we weren't sure who or where.  We wandered all around the hospital for a while until some nice people helped us to find our way.  It was nice to see some of the people we know, and to see that Angelee is not nervous or afraid of the hospital.  That's a good thing to know as we get ready to go back the next time.

To make a long visit short, it seems that Angelee is functioning very well.  Duh.  But the nice doctor can see evidences of brain injury in her neurological reflexes.  She is still more moody, and more impulsive than she was before.  Who knows how much more will come out in the future?  He said that sometimes you don't really see problems until the child starts school.  We will be following up with the doctor every few months for a while.

Main point: the doctor was very impressed, but cautioned that other problems may surface later.  We are happy.

Angelee had a great time playing with the balls in the therapy room
while we tried to figure out where we needed to be.

Love those slushies!
