E-Stim Today

Today was Will's first e-stim therapy. He did really well. The therapist put two little sticky things under his chin and taped them down (that was the worst part for Will). That took about 20 minutes to get things done and everything ready and then she turned it on. He didn't even notice anything and he tolorated the therapy for an hour. She slowly increases the intensity the the stim during the hour, so he gradually worked up to his theraputic level.

Our speech pathologist was really nice and was very comforting to Will. She was very intuned to when he needed a break or if it was starting to bother him.

In all, I think that it was a success and I am looking forward to seeing some good results. I am going to try to remember my camera next time so I can give you all some pictures.

That is GREAT news that he tolerated it so well right off the bat. Natalie took 3-4 sessions before she stopped crying and settled down, so Will is doing great. I can't wait to hear how he does when she starts introducing food and drink.
