Botox Clinic & Orthotic Review

Posted Feb 09 2010 1:48am
First we had appointment to review Violet's AFO as she has had so much pain lately with her CP, I wanted to be thorough and make sure her AFO was all okay too. Orthotist felt that with the Botox today and more casting, she is quite happy to continue with her AFO the way it is.

Then this afternoon we had Violet's Botox. She was booked for 1.30pm and she was injected at 3.30pm.

She was quite good considering her fasting started from 10.30am.

They again tried to sedate her with some Midazolam before she had her Nitrous Oxide. But, she still didn't cope and spent the whole duration of injections screaming and crying. As soon as she lies on the bed and sees the mask she starts and I stand there with all my strength holding her down, while thinking to myself...is this really necessary? Of course I know it is and she is soo very tight and we need to keep persisting with Botox until surgery age is closer...just doesn't get any easier...

They gave her huge amounts of Botox units, so here's hoping it helps more than previously.

Serial Casting starts Monday week!

Botox Follow-up Clinic Appointment in 2 weeks.
