31 for 21 Down Syndrome Awareness Month

Posted Oct 02 2012 8:50pm
I was able to speak with Jonathon's P.T. for a brief moment today.  She informed me that Jonathon is doing great in therapy.

I told her that at our Buddy Walk on Saturday he was jumping over cracks in the sidewalk.  And he was doing it very well.  And that we have been working on standing on 1 foot for 3 sec.  He can do 2 seconds with me.  And we have been throwing his balloons around the house and he has been catching them!  Well until our pumpkin cat popped them all.  But we will just get more!

We love Miss Jen.  She has been Jonathon's P.T. since he was an infant.  I am very happy to have her.  She is an amazing woman.  Thank you for choosing this career Jennifer.  You are great at your job.

Known Fact...There are three types of Down Syndrome....trisomy 21(nondisjunction) accounts for 95% of cases.  translocation accounts for about 4% and mosaicism accounts for about 1%.   http://www.ndss.org/Down-Syndrome/Down-Syndrome-Facts/

Jonathon has trisomy 21.
