we're moved!

Hi everyone! We got moved last weekend and this week has been spent settling in. Aidan is doing well. His surgery to put tubes in his ears went quickly and he did great. We were able to start hyperbaric treatments this Monday and he seems to be handling them just fine.

We're continuing to decrease his valium dosage and so far I can tell that he is much more alert which is what we were hoping for. I've felt him trying to move his arms and legs more too. He's smiling more now too.

I don't have the pictures of the boys from Halloween downloaded yet, but when I get them, I'll post them. We had a heck of a time getting Aidan into his costume. He's gotten so big! I think we're soon going to have to go up to 5T pants, or just start buying all pull-on pants.

The endocrinologist says that it's just his normal growth pattern and that it should taper off soon. To me he feels lighter actually, he's just getting longer. We'll have to check him the next time we go to the doctor.

Well, that's all the news for now. We're just getting settled in. I'm still waiting on some pictures I ordered for Aidan's room to come in and then I'll take some pictures of his room. It's so cute...

I hope everyone is doing well. We thank you all for you love, support and prayers. We keep you all in our prayers as well. Have a great weekend!

SO glad to hear the tubes in his ears was a decent procedure! And SO SO SO SO SO glad to hear Aidan is more alert and smiling more since you've been sliding off the valium!!!!!!!!!! Oh my gosh, I bet each smile is such a treasure. We pray daily for his FULL recovery, and cannot wait to rejoice with you! Can't wait to see Halloween photos, too!

I'm glad the move went well. Wow. So much has happened in the last month. It seems that the reduction in valium is a good thing. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts, as always.

Trying endlessly to get my google account to work. I am still praying and thinking of you often.
Love in Christ, Cindy.
