Happy little Kevin was born August of 2016. Only four years old, this little guy has suffered through quite a few things in his young life. His diagnoses are: rectal prolapse, postoperative congenital meningocele, postoperative release of congenital tethered cord syndrome, lipoma, postoperative congenital talipes equines (left foot), and right hydrocele testes.
His information is from 2019 and says the following: Kevin is very cute. He has fair skin, chubby face and ready smile. He has thick eyelashes and a cherry mouth. He lives in the ward due to needing care. He cannot control defecation and urination due to disease. Presently he uses the diaper, defecates at uncertain time and urinates several times per day. He is an attractive child. He has language talent, and likes imitating the adult to speak. He likes playing with toys. He likes Legos, patting the ball and likes walking back and forth pushing the walker. He is afraid of cats. He sleeps alone in the crib. He was sent to the hospital for treatment due to club feet on Dec. 17 2018. After examinations, he received correction of talipes equines of left foot which was successful. The doctor of our institute recommended the rehabilitation for him in the therapy center of our institute on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. He wore the orthopedic shoes every day.
As to his movement development and adaptability, he wears the orthopedic shoes every day except sleep due to disease. He can stand up with holding the rail, can stand alone stably, can walk back and forth with one hand holding the rail. He likes walking, likes pushing the walker or chair to walk around deftly. If there is a doorframe, he is very smart to raise the chair over it and continues to walk. He can pick the fruits to eat, and can hold the milk bottle to drink milk. He can bounce the ball, can say “slam dunk” and throw the ball. He can turn book page and newspaper, can recognize many things, can call names, such as: “cat, cucumber, coke”.
At the aspect of language and social ability, he likes speaking. He likes imitating adults or children in the same team to speak. Now he can interact well with adults. He can respond to the adult’s talking. He can follow the adult’s instructions, such as: “sit down, lie down, give me”. He can call names of nurse and children in the same team. When he sees the stranger, he can greet “hi, sister, mom”, can say “good job” after seeing the familiar doctor, can say “bye bye, good bye” when seeing the adult leaving. Sometimes when the adult reads the newspaper and says “too small characters”, he listens and says “I will read”. He can stretch out hands and ask for hug if seeing the favorite nurse, also ask for a walk outdoors. He gets along well in the ward. He often sits and plays with toy blocks with other children, also plays with each other at times and laughs happily. Nurses in the ward like him very much and say he is very smart. Though he is youngest in the ward, he accepts best. He is compliant and attractive. Sounds like he would make some lucky family very happy!
