Baby Girl went for her 4th acupuncture session (I didn’t take photos at her first session) today. It had been awhile since we had seen Dr. B and I could tell that BG was weaker in the back end. When we first arrived, Dr. B evaluated her reflexes and responses to see how she was doing since her last treatment. Then, the acupuncture needles were inserted in various locations along Baby Girl’s spine. I’ve never had acupuncture myself, but it is apparently VERY stimulating. Baby Girl proceeded to pass gas the entire time. It went from being funny, to embarrassing, to concerning. Dr. B refereed to Baby Girl’s belly as a hot air balloon! LOL!

Baby Girl’s second acupuncture session

We went today for our second acupuncture session for Baby Girl. Dr. B even noticed that BG was doing better. I told her that she is walking better, but we are having a real problem with bowel movement incontinence-this is worthy of its own blog post! Dr. B got her all set up with needles and then she puts these hooks on the needles and connects it to a battery. It is like they are doing electro-shock therepy to her!! LOL! For the most part she tolerates it very well, but she will act a little dramatic to get some sympathy. Afterwards, she ran around the room like a maniac!! It was hysterical. Then as soon as we got in the car she was zonked out. We go again in 4 weeks. I am to continue to massage her, let her walk at about 5-10 minute intervals, and just keep doing what we are doing.
