It’s been awhile the last time I published an interview but this is something I love to do and once in awhile, I reach out to our Cri du Chat family on facebook and ask for volunteers!
Today, I have the pleasure to introduce you to ChristyAnn and Lexie!
Hello ChristyAnn and thank you for taking the time to chat with me.
Q: Can you tell me about your family?
A: Lexie is one of 6 kids. She is number 5 in birth order. She will be two at the end of this month.
Q: Tell me more about Leixe who like Emily has cri du chat syndrome.
A: Lexie has good receptive language, you can tell she understands, but her expressive language is delayed. She is learning sign language . She crawls, sits up, pulls self to stand, tries to climb, but won’t walk yet. She loves to tease people. She’s a little jokester. Always laughing, always happy.
Q: Tell me about doctors, therapies or school?
A: Our days consist of Lexie and her little sister. We have physical therapy once a week. Speech therapy with vstimonce a week. Occupational therapy 4times a month. And numerous doctor and specialist appointments in between. Her most important doctors have been her pulmonologist and GI doctor.
Q: Tell me a success story?
A: We have faith that every milestone has been because of God. I take her regularly to receive anointing of the sick at our church. And milestones seem to come after these blessings.
She used to have a hard time holding her head up because of low tone. So her head would always rest towards her right shoulder. A few days after her first anointing, her kink in her head was gone. grin emoticon I truly believe that prayer, faith, and hard work keeps her achieving milestones.
This was her as a baby. You can see her turning her head to her favorite shoulder. Therapies involved helping her stretch, and massaging her neck gently.
Q: Anything else you would like the world to know?
A: She also loves cats and dogs.
Lexie has her own facebook page if you would like to follow her progress.
NEW!!! We have a facebook page: If you want short updates and timely pictures of the little things that are happening in our life, please like and follow Lessons from my daughter‘s page.
