Carsyn’s Gait Trainer!!

YAY! The company called me today and said they are delivering Carsyn’s gait trainer to our house tomorrow!! This is so awesome and unexpected, one they told me it wouldn’t be there till the 21st, two I was thinking I would have to drive up to Virginia to get it, and three I was thinking it was going to take at least a week to get an appointment. Guys, I am sooooo excited to get this. I am hoping and praying that he will be able to use it for Halloween. I just think it would be so adorable having him walk around in it with his Superman outfit on.

I will post pictures and videos tomorrow of him in it. I really hope he picks up on it quickly! I think he will love walking around and interacting more.

This next part is very personal, but I want to share it with you all and let you all know you are not alone. It is hard being a mom of a super hero. I saw my doctor today for a little bit of anxiety and depression I have been having since I found out Carsyn’s diagnosis. She has prescribed me some medicine. We will see how that goes. Hopefully it will help and I can get back to keeping my house clean, exercising and I will stop emotional eating. She said it will be 2-3 weeks before I will see a difference. Praying it helps.

  1. I’m excited, along with you, for Carsyn to have this opportunity to develop his walking skills!
    My prayers are with you for strength and guidance as you move forward in your daily life. Know, you are not alone. HUG!

  2. Yay!! So excited. Patricia’s Carson only used his gait trainer for a short period. It was awesome. Hope your meds begin to make you feel better. Some of it may be the stress of having two and not necessarily from trying to deal with the news about his disability. I know I had to take something for a couple of years after Kylie was born. It took me a couple of years to finally figure out I needed to do something our my kids were gonna think I was the grumpiest person around. LOL!!

  3. Yay for his trainer!! And not having to drive to get it! I’m so excited for you guys!!!!!!!!!!

    And hugs to you! You have so much on your plate!! There is absolutely no shame in taking medicine to balance things out, it’s just another way of taking care of yourself! Good for you for recognizing that. I’ve always heard 3 weeks is the magic number and I hope it really helps you out :o)

  4. I am so glad he got his gait trainer. I know it will make a world of difference. Girl, I will pray that the medication helps and that you can return to the activities you mentioned.
