For those of you that don't know, Bryan is staying with us for a while so he can be closer to his doctors and get the medical care he needs to get on his feet....literally and physically. Bryan has been with us for 2 weeks now and we have been doing the follow up for his shunt and getting everything else switched to Houston. ENT, PT, etc. Right now the hunt is on for a great nanny to come in and help out my daughter Shelby, who is currently caring for Bryan while I'm at work (and doing a GREAT job of it). Shelby is due with her first child May 28th, so the clock is ticking away. I have an interview today with a young lady who is an early childhood specialist student in her junior year and she is planning her masters in OT. I'm really hoping she is the one.....
So, this week we put up 2, two, TWO cribs at our house, rearranged the entire place and babyproofed everything. Wow....talk about life changing. We absolutely love having Bryan with us. He is making great progress, finally, and is starting to gain some weight back and sleep through the night. He had some complications after surgery that would probably be considered minor, but all of it really got him down and he was weak, lost weight, and lost all of the skills he had recently aquired during his month or so with the PT. Hopefully he will be able to pick them all back up quickly...and reach our goal of walking by the end of summer.
