Brayden was put in the stander this week.
He has not been in the stander since early March (before the broken femur, botox and hip problems).
When Brayden was first starting the stander, over one year ago, he would scream and fuss. It would take him about 10 minutes to settle down and be able to tolerate being upright in the stander. So, leading up to this week in the stander was me being worried about it. I checked with the physical med doctor twice to make sure that when she said "Give it a try", she really meant give it a try. We have learned that some doctors say "give it a try" and they are really saying "don't do it but you are the parent so I can't really tell you what to do." Anyway, Brayden got cleared from the physical medicine doctor and PT at Children's to try the stander again, despite the problems with his hip.
I was fully expecting Brayden to be mad/irritated/hurt/stressed/etc when put back in the stander after many, many months of not using one. I went to school to talk to the physical therapist and Brayden's teacher while we tried him in it. The PT scooped up Brayden put in the stander, I held my breath...
