He was quite happy to take over this chair in the waiting room, and thrilled to find out it has serious bouncing potential, only to be disappointed when we got back to his orthotist’s office that his vinyl covered chair didn’t have much bounce potential. 😂 Such a ham whenever he sees the camera (phone) come out! 😍
Yep, you and me both, pal.
So after an early start (and a big poo at 4am meaning neither of us got a lot of sleep), we had our first review appointment at Harley Street today. It went really well! As soon as we took the helmet off, Alan, our orthotist, asked me if I thought I could see any difference in James’ head shape. I did actually look at him this morning and thought his forehead looked different but I put it down to wishful thinking. Turns out Alan has a keen eye and when he measured James’ head today his cranial asymmetry has already improved by 3mm! After one week in the helmet, some of that being part time too, everyone was very impressed! Alan made some small adjustments to the helmet, one of James’ ears was being a bit squished by it and it was a bit snug on his cheek on one side. He also put it in a special UV cleaning machine, no idea how it works but when it came out, the smell had completely gone! 🎉
So we’re headed for home, the nice conductor on the train gave us free passes for first class for our next two journeys as I had the pram parked up in the doorway, James was kicking off while I was trying to settle him and I was getting chucked about all over the place. Thank you @chilternrailway although I’m not sure what the suits in first class will have to say when they realise they have a rather ‘vocal’ 5 month old for company!
Our next visit to London is in a couple of weeks, physio in Oxford tomorrow, never a dull moment! Also, just to clarify, James did the 4am poo, not me.
