My two boys...


My two boys...
Jarom had his appointment with the ear/nose dr. He passed with flying colors ears are working great
Thursday he will see the pediatrician to make sure all is well...
The school has about 45 days left to do a new speech evaluation and an OT evaluation.
Just some stuff at school that is putting red flags up so I am doing all I can to rule everything out
Now Elijah...
About 2 weeks ago his left foot (weaker side w/ the CP) started having some extreme inward rotation. No idea what is causing it. Last week I took him to the orthotics place that made his leg braces. We ruled out that it is not the leg braces. Next Monday Elijah will go see the Orthopedic Dr. in Tucson (70 miles away) to see what is causing the problem. If no answer then we will head to a neurologist.
Oh yes... and we are fighting to save Jarom's tooth for about 5 more weeks. He injured it the 2nd week in January with a bad bathroom fall. A week later infection started swelling the side of his face etc... Dentist here did an antibiotic. Now 3 weeks later the tooth is abscessing.... called dentinst he refusing to pull it with Jarom's bad history with being sedated. All dental work with this kid he must be sedated. So now with using salt and in a week or so we will start the last antibiotic and hope to hold him off to having it pulled until we get to Utah to his regular dentist April 11th...

Laura,
Your family sounds a lot like ours. We have done nothing but been to doctors and dentists since we got here. (Or so it seems!) It's good to hear your kids are doing alright, and I hope April comes soon! Take care, Jess
