The first day that our in-home therapist brought over a pair of compression pants, ABRAM STOOD for the first time in his life. He literally will not put weight on his legs on his own, nor will he put his own legs down if you are holding him to try to get him to stand - he just simply bends in half if you try.. but that day with those compression pants on he went from sitting on my knee TO STANDING without any help on my part at all and even stood at his musical toy and played for a little bit! It absolutely wore him out and it didn't last very long but he DID IT. My son stood at 16 months old and I cried. It was wonderful.
I WILL be getting a picture of this! You gotta see him all snug in his little pants! We are currently borrowing compression pants and a compression vest from Early Access but ChildServe is helping us with our insurance to get him his own compression outfit from Spio. Hopefully insurance will approve his garments and we can work hard at home to get him up, standing and walking! Our Neurologist promised to take us out for dinner if Abram is walking by our next appointment!
