DOC Band Adjustment

So today Dom had another adjustment for his helmet. I have not been for a while and I was able to take him this morning along with Nana. He has made some great progress in these past 5 1/2 weeks. They are estimating that we should be done with the helmet within the next 6 to 8 weeks which should only be another 2 or 3 visits YAY!!! They did still notice that Dom has a bit of a head tilt and we need to really get serious about his neck stretches. His rotation has gotten almost 100% better but still that slight head tilt GRRR. I am so happy with the results so far and can't wait to see the final results.

Now that we are moving into the really warm weather down here in South Florida the tech recommended that we watch Dom's skin a little more closely and remove the helmet to wipe down the helmet and his head due to the sweat.

We go down to the Keys a lot so having the helmet on Dom 23 hours out of the day is not as easy as we thought. We are still managing to keep it on him a good part of the time but since we can't put sunscreen on his head or have him in the water without washing his hair before putting the helmet back on it's a little more difficult than we thought. Hopefully these next 6 to 8 weeks fly.
