Joshua's physiotherapist is worried about his hip placement.  She has ordered him a pair of lycra shorts.  Image is taken from DM Orthotics website.
We don't like them.  We understand that he needs them, we understand the benefits, but we don't have to like it.  It brings home the fact that he needs additional support, it reminds us that he is disabled.  What is worse is that Joshua doesn't like them, there is a plastic curve in the crotch which stops him from scissoring his legs.    

On a positive note, we are very happy that the seizures have stopped.  Hopefully that means that we have the balance right on his epilepsy medication.
