It seems like it has been a long time coming… but I am so extremely excited to announce that Addison is officially done with her helmet!
She had her final check up yesterday and after taking all of her head measurements, calculating them and charting them her doctor looked at me and said it was a pleasure meeting us – and working with us and released Addison from his care.
I looked at Addison who was sitting on the exam table with Dr. Nathan and clapped and said “YAY Addie!” and she looked right at me and started clapping with a huge smile on her face. The moment completely melted my heart.
Not only was she clearly happy, but her doctor was really pleased with the progress she had made despite all of our bumps in the road.
The experience as a whole was bumpy, but their office was absolutely amazing. I think that is the only part of it all I am actually going to miss. The receptionist and her specialist.
I also hope that sharing our experience will help ease the mind of parents who have to go through this and may be worried or scared just like I was in December when this entire saga started. It all certainly has been a great learning experience!
