The Sickness Continues

We don't have a lot of news to report.  Mikan is sick again with a new respiratory something or other; this time it has affected his eating, but I think the worst of it may be over.  

Next week Mikan will see a few specialists so we may have some news on the medical front.  

This week we visited a new neurologist who was pretty quick to recommend Botox injections for Mikan's tight gastroc muscle.  When I told her that he regularly sees a physiatrist who said Mikan was not spastic enough to justify Botox injections, she said she was fine with waiting four months to see his how he progresses.  I can see regular improvements in his walking, so I really don't think this will be necessary.

Below are a few pictures from the past week.

Mikan drawing numbers on our deck with a fly swatter stuck down the back of his pants.  Why?  Who knows.

Is it for his legs? Have you tried night splints? We are about to try them with Lilly because they believe botox would have a negative affect with her muscles. (She uses her tone to walk)
