|First Day Success Smiles :)|
Today Mason ATE this much food by mouth!! (well, this is what is left!)
Tomorrow we are meeting with OT to go back to once a week, and add speech therapy. His PT is going well too...look at how he can hold up his head now!
Friday is his FIRST BIRTHDAY!! Has it really been a year?? Oh my. Anyway, anyone who would like to stop by about 7 pm Friday night (19th), we will sing to him and see if he wants some cake :)
All we can say is GLORY TO GOD!! :D
HOSPITAL UPDATE: Mason still has his rash from Fifth Disease/parvob19 virus (he was in the hospital from the 5th to the 7th after a trip by ambulance due to respiratory distress from uncontrollable secretions). But his wheezing and congestion are immensely better!! He seems to be having some new types of seizure-like episodes though, that don't affect his oxygen saturations/heart rate ... the neuro has upped his seizure med to see if this improves the situation. Pray it works like a charm so he can continue his good progress (hard to eat if you're staring off into space unresponsive, in an absence seizure). Pray for Micah too; doc says he also has hypotonia to a lesser degree and could use PT/OT for some of his issues, especially low muscle tone/weakness around his joints/ankles/shoulders and for sensory issues/fine motor help (his hands get tired easily and affects the length of time he wants to do crafts/writing/coloring/drawing, etc). So we will be getting him evaluated for that in next couple weeks. They are both also getting bloodwork Thursday to check to see if their re-vaccination helped them build more antibodies to pneumococcal strains.
