Occupational Therapy and other stuff...

Dylan had his first occupational therapy session today. Because he is only 7 weeks old there is only so much that you can do, but yet I am incredibly encouraged that we are starting so early. The therapist showed me some different exercises and movements to do with Dylan to begin strengthening his neck muscles. He is still quite floppy, but works so hard at trying to hold up his little head. You should see him when we hold him - the little guy puts so much energy into holding himself together. I swear that's one of the reasons why he sleeps so well at night! He's such a little fighter...



Tomorrow is Dylan's follow-up cardiology appointment. I am going to make a list of questions that I want to ask the doctor. I don't even know where to begin though. There is so much that I want to know...but yet I don't want to know. The little details scare me. I know that Dylan is going to do great, I really do. It's me that Im worried about! My kids are far braver than I.

Here are my brave little loves.

Laur, You have been so brave and strong! I am so proud of you. I am glad you have a list for the Dr. Don't let him rush you, they may do this everyday, but this isn't something you deal with everyday. So make sure he answers all of you questions and you will think of alot after you leave as well I am sure, and that is okay to call their office after the appt. You can also call me and I will ask the Drs. here if you want me to. Call me after his appt. I love you!

As always, they are ADORABLE! look how cool Cass is in her glasses!

I can only imagine how scary the doctor will be. I know it will be OK!

Love you!

We were assigned a case manager for Finn, but nobody has contacted us about starting any kind of therapy yet! I don't know whether to be happy or disappointed about this.

I will be thinking about you guys tomorrow, and waiting to hear how the cardio appt. went.

Stay strong, Laurie, you have such a great attitude.
