Being in a hospital for many days each month is almost enough to drive a child (or his mother) crazy, right? Especially when that child has issues with hyperactivity, attention span, proprioception, safety awareness, and his joints – and because of all these, has to be in a covered and enclosed crib unless closely supervised in his hospital room. If left to their own devices, some children might turn that bed into a trampoline (oh no, not Case!) or possibly a scene from King Kong with the sides being shaken and shouts echoing down the halls.
But the best moments of the day are the times when the recreation therapy center is open. It may only be 11-12, 2-4, and 6-7, but those several hours are the highlight of Case’s days when he can fit time in between medical stuff. Wednesday is the best, because his calendar is penciled in with all 3 recreation therapy appointments. Here are some highlights of our Wednesday.
