Pediatric Abduction Pillow
I've got three words to say about this thing...
IT SUCKS EGGS!
Seriously. Dalton hates it and he tosses and turns and whines and cries every night. He tries hard not to but right now he's asleep and keeps trying to turn over and is whining because he can't move around good. (Oh, and this picture was taken the day that his abduction pillow came in the mail so I just got him to lay down and try it on. For the record, he doesn't sleep in the kitchen floor. LOL)
At PT today Dalton's ROM is down a little in two areas...one of which (abduction) is the one that goes hand in hand with his hip easing back into socket. It's hard not to be concerned but this isn't the time to freak out about it, I know...but it's hard, just the same..we've not had a time yet that his ROM has gone down..it's always increased. Dr. Standard said to call if his ROM went the opposite direction but at this point we couldn't get up there any earlier than we are now due to vacation schedules, etc so we are just going to ride it out and see what Aug 17th will bring. It is what it is I suppose and it will be what it will be when Dr. S. checks him next. Just please pray that his ROM is increasing!
