Canuckle Heads

I thought since Ava’s well on the road to recovery, I would be winding down this blog.

However; it seems I’ve created quite a loyal following who keeps reminding me in not-so- subtle voicemails that I ‘haven’t updated my blog yet today, and there are those of us checking for it regularly’.

*Ahem*. Very well.

We went and got Ava’s helmet today. She’s not so sure about it, but like a good team player, she’s willing to give it a go.

The colour selection was spectacular. It comes in (wait for it, wait for it, wait for it…)


The design selection was equally as spectacular. It comes in (wait for it….)

Plain white.

She’s supposed to wear it for 20+ hours a day for three to four months. We start with a few hours a day and ‘wean her onto the helmet’ until she’s wearing it full time (their words, not mine).

So while Ava’s ‘weaning’ (and not whining but WINNING!) – I thought I’d share a few photos:

Incidentally – she’s reading the Globe and Mail in this one (global polo stats I’m sure).

On a side note – go Canucks go!

I ventured out onto Yonge Street today to find her some Canucks gear, but (surprise, surprise), it would seem this city is suddenly filled with Canucks fans. Much to my dismay, there’s nary a mini-jersey to be found. I did, however; find some great Calgary Flames onesies!

So for all of you back on the Wet Coast, we’ll see you Tuesday.

Oh – and this one’s for you daddy:

    What, no Maple leaf sticker? You are in Toronto 🙂

    She looks so cute, I’m sure it’ll be a tough adjustment period, sleeping will probably be an issue. There is a section on cranio kids for parent’s going through helmet therapy.
    Sorry again that we can’t meet up, safe travels and let’s keep in touch for sure.
    You are a beautiful writer, I hope you keep this blog going, I’ve cried and giggled reading it.

    God Bless…Love Janet xoxo

    Love the story and LOVE the Canuck addition to the helmet.

    My 4 year old daughter, Zoe, has microcephaly.

    God bless Ava!

      Aww thanks Brandi. God bless both of you… I know how tough it is.
      Ava’s doing really well and she’s half-way through her helmet therapy. The Canucks on the other hand didn’t do so well!!
      Sending you lots of love and best wishes. Melissa & Ava
