Sorry for blog silence this month.
It's been intense.
Jacob continues to be extremely sensitive in the hand/fingers; fortunately, night screaming has drastically decreased. He gets his cast off on December 8th and though terrified of the cast-cutter (that previously cut him), he is pumped about bathing and playing in the sand at school without a bag on his arm. And, you know, using his formerly dominant left hand/fingers for anything. Including pumping-up a rocket balloon without using his feet.
In other regards, these two boys of ours continue to be hilariously normal siblings.
(Don't worry, Jacob gave it back to Thomas. and pouted about it.)
Thomas is walking all over now and at his most recent respiratory-distress ER trips (happy thanksgiving, HA), he has remained 26#'s of all boy. Though muscle development and height have increased, the Buddha belly remains (and precious cheeks)- and those below are 18month articles of clothing.
But, he still ingests minimal solids. Silly boy prefers nursing, though can occasionally be tempted by Cheerios, pear, chicken, peas, or beans. Unfortunately the dairy allergy persists with full body eczema flare-ups, so no cheese or yogurt for the two of us....we'll try again in a few months.
At our follow-up Dr appt today (there were 2 ER trips due to him not breathing well over the Thanksgiving), we have finally been told that we should see a pulmonary specialist. This is exciting in that we may actually get his asthma under control or at least talk to someone who has more than just guesswork on treatment/prevention.
I see now that this post makes us sound like crazy people with so many health problems.
But.....I have little to offer, other than if you're family and friends you know this isn't the usual case.....well.... Let's just say: come on healthy 2012!
To round-out the boy post:
