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.

That's great news! How did you manage to distract him though? And did he tell you what it felt like? What a brave boy!
