    Celebrating “Inchstones” in SMA

    A mother’s perspective: How our family measures progress since treatment

    You couldn’t picture a happier or more beautiful little boy than the one who came into our lives on January 4, 2019. Little did we know, this bundle of joy we named Slade was just starting a journey that was going to change our family’s life.

    About 2 weeks after Slade was born we started to notice that he appeared to be a bit floppy. Our pediatrician chalked it up to him being a calm baby and told us he’d eventually grow out of it. With my husband being a chiropractor and my background in early childhood development, we knew something was wrong–we could just feel it.

        I was in Eugene for the Ducks game on Saturday, and it was raining ever so slightly at the beginning of the game. Thankfully, it stopped, but I actually got a poncho just in case. I don’t know how well it would have worked, but worth a shot. Have you used a poncho? Was it successful?

        I have and do use a poncho.  Hate it and don’t find it very helpful. Usually I end up with plastic bags covering my joystick and my lefthand positioning control (bread bags work well).

        My understanding is that these are the most vulnerable pieces in terms of moisture. But again, what do I know?

        I have used ponchos on occasion. As most of us do, I generally avoid rain, but if I can’t avoid it, ponchos are an acceptable solution. I usually use one for myself and one to cover the chair. Whenever possible I pair the ponchos with a large golf umbrella.

        Yeah, rain isn’t a big issue for me, as my hometown doesn’t get much rain. But I was curious anyway.

        Always have a couple of bread bags in the backpack for the joystick.  Have a huge oversized poncho that will cover me and the chair if it was really really bad.

        Good tips! I have used ponchos before, and I have one that’s soft and works great during the wintertime. It’s sort of a poncho/coat hybrid.
