It's only Tuesday?!
Is it seriously only Tuesday? This week has been eternally long already. Yesterday, I got a call around lunchtime from the trainer at Ryan’s school that he was having chest pains and shortness of breath and that they had called EMS. Thank goodness for our nurse because I was able to leave right away to go and be with him. He checked out ok, but EMS recommended we go to the hospital. I drove him to the ER, and long story short, they kept him overnight for observation and he came home around 6:00 tonight. He did not have a heart attack, thank goodness, but will follow up with a cardiologist on Friday to see if they can figure out the cause.
|Visiting Daddy- G was glad not to be the patient this time!|
This morning, we had an appointment to get Grayson fitted for his AFOs- orthotic devices that will help his stability when he puts weight on his legs. In true Grayson fashion, he was generally uncooperative and being a major wiggle worm. I turned on Veggie Tales music on my phone and he instantly calmed down (Veggie Tales is Grayson Crack). He also wanted to chew on my phone, which I stupidly thought would be ok because I have an Otter.Box case. Ummm…so my phone may be able to survive a fall from a 10 story building, but baby drool- forget it. By the time the casting was done, I took my phone from his mouth and it wasn’t working- and there was a pool of drool under the protective screen. Grrrreeeat. Thankfully, putting it in rice for awhile and wiping it down really well seemed to work- no issues now. But…ugh. Oh, and you get to pick a design to go on the AFOs. I’m normally totally against licensed characters on stuff for my kid, but when I saw that Veggie Tales was one of the options, I just couldn’t NOT have Bob and Larry on my kid’s feet- ha!
Tomorrow is a big day- not only is Grayson’s wheelchair being delivered, but his bath chair too. And you know what that means? After almost 23 months of bathing him in the infant tub, tonight was possibly his LAST bath in it. I am beyond excited for this nastiness to be in the trash tomorrow (Baby #2 will have a brand spankin’ new tub). I just had to take a picture of his last bath tonight- Ryan just rolled his eyes.
|Yeah, he’s a tad too big for this tub- ha!|
Grayson starts school on Monday! Life is about to get crazy, but I am so very excited for him. I am meeting with the organization that does therapy at the school on Thursday; we have decided for right now to keep his ECI therapists (we are both attached to them) and try and get additional therapy for him at school. I am hoping he can get some intensive speech therapy at school to focus on oral feeding- we’ll see what they say on Thursday. Because he’s going to school 3 days/week, we will be fitting in 4 therapists and hopefully most doctors appointments in 2 days. Well, at least we won’t get bored!
Life is plugging right along- we are just thankful Ryan is ok. Here’s hoping the rest of the week is drama free!
