Our Teddy Bear's Journey

Theodore was born with renal failure. This is his story.

Hip Helpers and Crawling

Alright, here’s Teddy doing what he does best in the Hip Helpers. Sitting.

Without the Hip Helpers, he mostly ends up like this if he gets on his hands and knees (which is still a rarity for him). This is him pushing himself back up into a sit from being on hands and knees, but imagine him up on his knees, his legs would still be that far apart.

THIS is how he moves about. This is new this week. Right leg tucked away in front, left leg extended straight out to the side, he walks forward with his hands and uses his abdominal muscles to pull his body along.

This is Teddy on his hands and knees WITH the Hip Helpers. They do what they’re supposed to do, that’s for sure.

And this is his ankle, and this is not as far up as it goes. His toes touch his shin.

    It’s worth noting that the hip helpers do not fit over cloth diapers, so I’ve been using the last few of my disposables with him when he’s having his floor time with the hip helpers. Now I”m all out, and I’m not entirely sure what I’m going to do. Maybe I’ll put him in something really thin.
