We had a fun-filled weekend between going to Chuck-E-Cheese, bowling, playing with Sylvester the cat, etc. Sophie's appointment for her helmet went well. They made minor adjustments and we were on our way. The trip home went as smoothly as the trip there and we only made one stop to have lunch. Thank you again, Erica and Ricky, for your wonderful hospitality. We cannot wait to come visit again.
Our second trip to Chicago was last Friday. This was a fly there and fly back in the same day trip with just Sophie and me. Sophie is such a wonderful traveler. Though, the flight home was challenging with having to sit in a middle seat while holding Sophie in my lap. The plane was about 45 minutes delayed coming into the airport. Once the plane arrived and people started getting off the plane, I noticed that Sophie had a smelly diaper. So I rushed her to the bathroom to change her diaper and by the time I got back, they already started boarding. We were flying Southwest so there is no assigned seating but Sophie and I get to pre-board. So I rush up to the front and realized that I cannot find my boarding pass. Argh!!! So I got a new boarding pass and by the time we got on the plane there were only middle seats left. We sat in between a male college student and an older lady. Both were very understanding. Sophie was very active but at least she was happy. Her appointment went well. Her head shape is improving. This time they took measurements and pictures along with making minor adjustments to the helmet. Her cranial vault asymmetry went down from a 7mm to 4mm. Her skull base asymmetry went down from 5mm to 3mm. This is great improvement considering her old orthoticist said that there was nothing else we could do!!!
