"First Time with Vest" Pics

Here are a couple vest pics. We didn't get too many, b/c the trainer was there. We'll get more later, and maybe some video. It's so cute when he tries to talk(make sounds). His voice just vibrates. He didn't seem to mind the vest at all! I just tried to keep him occupied with some toys. Before the trainer came, I let him play with a lil' pig toy that vibrates. I kept putting it on him to get used to something vibrating on him before we put the vest on. Not sure if it really made a difference or not, but he had no problems with the vest! He did it for 20 minutes non-stop! And he didn't cry once! What a good boy!
His prescription is 20 minutes 2 times a day(morning and night), his frequency is between 10-14 Hz, and his air pressure is between 4-6. The trainer has us do the first 18 minutes at 14 Hz frequency and the last 2 minutes she gradually decreased it going from 12 to 10, while keeping the air pressure at 4 the entire treatment. I will talk more about what the frequency and air pressure mean in a later post for those of you who do not know.

All he needs is a mask, mouth piece and flippers on his feet and he'll be ready for diving. lol I am so glad that he didn't have any problems sitting with the vest on for the 20 minutes. Praise God for new inventions that make life easier. He looks so cute. Give him lots of hugs and kisses for us.
Hugs and kisses to you & Big C too.
