Benign Cognitive Hypotonia

That is the medical terminology for Meredith's condition. Basically she has low muscle tone, but it is improving with her physical therapy. He thinks she with walk within a month and if she isn't walking in 2-3 months we are supposed to bring her back. One of the things he told us was that before kids can walk they have to learn to fall and she does have that ability. He demonstrated by thrusting her forward and she put her arms out to catch herself. I had never heard this before but if makes complete sense. He said that in a year or so no one would be able to tell the difference in her and other children, but she won't ever be a ballerina (that is ok with us).

So for now Meredith is fine. We will keep her in physical therapy and hopefully in a month we will be regretting the day we said we wish she would walk because she will be running around everywhere. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.
