Matthew started E-stim last week. I was so excited that I think I put too many eggs in one basket. I prepped Matthew for what to expect. The electrodes were put on his leg and the machine turned on.
I had to swallow my disappointment. I was really hoping for something. Steve said not to worry yet. But it was hard not to.
Yesterday, Steve tried E-stim again. This time he placed the electrodes lower down then turned it on.
Matthew immediately said "I feel it!"
Then, for the next 15 minutes I had to work at keeping him distracted so he wouldn't pull it off. But that's ok. I can distract him. The benefits far outweigh the nuisance.
Matthew will be missing physio for the next few weeks due to everyone's holiday schedules. I look forward to more e-stim for him. Hope one day he looks forward to it too.
