No, Shelby Frances did not break her arm. Because of the huge difference between Shelby's abilities on her right and left sides, we have decided (along with her physical and occupational therapists) to try constraint induced therapy. She will be wearing this rockin' hot pink cast 23 hours a day for the next three weeks. This was not a decision that Tiff and I came to easily. With the cast and the hip brace, Shelby really only has full range of motion with her left arm now--the arm that she can't do much with. We hope that will change in the next few weeks. This type of therapy was developed for stroke patients, but has been shown to be successful with children as well. Shelby is the youngest child ever to be fitted for a cast at Mission Childrens Hospital. We'll keep you updated as she progresses, her therapists think she has a lot of potential. In the meantime, here is some information on constraint therapy: http://ptot.chsys.org/default.aspx?id=2055.
