Like I said in my last post, Ellis no longer has to wear her DOC band and we are thrilled with the results!  Her asymmetry went from 12 to a 3!  This chart will explain what I am talking about.  Basically, she went from severe to normal.  So, in the end, that overpriced helmet was worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY!  We are still fighting with our insurance to cover it... more on that later.  Here are a few pictures form her very last appointment with her Physical Therapist, Cathy, who we simply adore!

Yay Dad!  No more stupid helmet! :)

Ellis next to her head mold.  This angle doesn't show the improvement as much as I would like it to, but you can kind of see how the mold had more of a lump on the right side.
