Long Time, No Post

The past few weeks have been pretty routine. Nick has has PT, OT, and Speech. He is doing well in all of them and showing slow progression. The corner chair that his OT ordered finally came in. It is a neat little chair and will allow him to sit supported and play. He went to the allergy doctor last week. He didn't retest for allergies because he wants to wait a year from the first test which will be next summer. He did say that his skin is really dry and he is at high risk for Eczema because of his food allergy. So he recommended lotion and cleanser to use on him. He has had a few patches of weird looking dry skin so hopefully the Eczema lotion will help. We hope to make it to the pumpkin patch this week to take pictures. We haven't had a time during the day on the weekends when we can all go. This week he has a port flush and a brain CT. It is a routine CT for his six month visit with the neurosurgeon. He has a big birthday coming up.
Maybe he will be interested in the cake this year. I found a gluten free cake mix that doesn't have milk in it. Hope it is good.

  1. Hey,
    Can't believe he is going to be 2 all ready. I seen a little girl, at the zoo last night, in a chair like Nicholas's and thought about him. I think the "slow" progress in therapy is normal and is just Nicholas showing his independence. Which is awesome for him, but makes you crazy.
    You guys take care and hope you make it to the pumpkin patch.
