Just over a week ago we had a huge celebration in honor of not only Liam's birthday, but also as a thank you to all those people who have helped us out this past year post-stroke. In lieu of gifts for himself, Liam agreed to have all gifts donated to the play center at Loyola's Children Hospital. He truly had a good experience there just about a year ago and was more than willing to pay it forward.
Then, finally, it was on to the neurologist appointment. Great news on that front... we're done with that doctor unless we start to notice any unusual behavior (seizures, dizziness, etc....)!
He did have some concerns about the speech therapy Liam has been receiving and asked me if there was something else they could do to help the aphasia. My response was that I didn't know of anything! He vaguely remembers another patient using something so he's going to look into that for me. We did discuss how the strategies he's been taught in therapy have been very helpful, but still the doctor feels that there's something more they could do. We'll see how that pans out. (I'm to call him in about a week.)
