Outpatient PT Evaluation & Our First Visit to the Peoria Zoo
This morning Ethan had an appointment at Easter Seals to be evaluated for outpatient physical therapy. While we are very happy with his PT at school, it is our desire to supplement it with outpatient, and specifically with water/pool PT. The evaluation went well, Ethan even showed off and walked with his walker for the PT. Hopefully, he'll start outpatient PT within a couple of weeks.
Afterwards I took Ethan to school, but he was only there for a short time since it was a half day. We decided to spend part of the afternoon with some of our new friends, Michelle and Khloe. Khloe is in Ethan's class at school. We headed to the Peoria Zoo. It was Ethan and I's first time there. While Ethan didn't care about the animals we had a nice visit and the kids enjoyed playing in the leaves. This was the first time Ethan's really "played" in the leaves. It took him a while to warm up to it, but overall I think he liked it.
