Today we are going to pray for head control. Seton needs to get stronger in his core, back, and neck so that he can hold up his head. When we place him in certain positions he is able to hold his head for a short amount of time, then he gives up and lets it relax back or forward. He rarely lifts his head on his own…unless he is sneezing and shooting snot rockets, as Zane likes to say. J He will turn his head to look in a different direction sometimes too. His favorite position is lying on his back on his boppy pillow with his neck fully extended backward, watching TV upside down. I think it opens up his airway completely so he can breathe better that way. I can’t believe I don’t have a picture of this…I will take one today and post it tomorrow. This position does not help work his neck muscles. He will see his occupational therapist today and she will work with him on sitting up and controlling his head.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support for us as we take this journey with Seton. We are blessed to have you all in our lives and praying for our son. We really appreciate it.
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
Zane, Shawna and Seton
