By the end of 2 weeks, Diego showed great improvement while Mom and Dad were feeling ill from the effects of eating out everyday. We were both ready to go home but needed to decide on future treatment. We could either followup with a physical therapist in Austin or make the 5 1/2 hour drive every week to Scottish Rite. There's was no doubt we would stick with Scottish Rite.
Fast forward to today. Every Friday we make the 5 1/2 hour trip to Dallas. We've been doing this now for over 7 weeks. To help with work, Dad purchased a mobile networking plan that allows him to work remotely from the car. Mom is back to work and routinely takes conference calls during the trip. Our SUV has become our part-time office on wheels! It's hard at times but well worth it. Diego continues to respond well to treatment. So far we've gone from weekly soft cast to hard casts then back to soft casts and now splints. Most of the work has been focused on his legs and feet. On June 14th we will go back to Dallas to meet with the hand team at Scottish Rite. We've been told he will see the best had surgeon in the world. We look forward to meeting the team and feel blessed to have access to such accomplished physicians and staff.We'd like to say Thanks to our friends and family for all your support. A Special thanks to Ian Benoist and Micheal Clark, Dad's managers at Dell. You guys have been great!
