Combatting the crunch

Reagan had a pretty good day today. She started out a little serious again, but she's mellowed out as the day has gone on. She had another good session of PT. She's using a tumbleforms "raised roll" (it's flat on one side so it doesn't roll) and laying Reagan on it to help open up her back (she's always in flexion, crunching forward). Every time they do it, she completely relaxes into it, lays with her arms extended out and relaxed, and seems to love it! Her nurse is going to start doing it at least once a day, to see if it helps to get her out of crunchmode! This afternoon she had OT. She did a lot of switch work and she's getting very good at it! She's been pretty sweet and a little laughy today/tonight. Her hands and feet are definitely cold and clammy, so I'm not sure what that's about. Tonight she was a little laughy (even as she was dozing off) but she was asleep when we laid down. Hoping she gets some rest tonight!
