Today was Leah's first day of water PT. I really had high hopes that she was going to love it...yeah, not so much. In fact she screamed about 98% of the time. We arrived at the pool--Leah in her bikini--and Lisa the therapist took Leah into the water. Literally the second she hit the water the tears came pouring out! Lisa asked me to sit at the edge of the pool, so I did. Leah still screamed! Lisa asked me to step out, to see if then she would calm down. So, I did and she continued to scream. I spent the rest of the 45 minute session standing outside watching my baby cry in the pool. She did calm down every once in awhile, but it always ended with tears. It was not enjoyable for me to watch her be so upset, but I want this therapy to work. I know that in time she will really love water therapy. She loves the water, I just think it was the new environment and new people. Next week, I will get in the water with her, we will see how it goes!
P.S. Does anyone come around here anymore?? Let me know your visiting! I'd love to hear from you! :)
