For the first time since starting this blog, I am finding it more difficult to keep writing regularly this summer. Having all 3 hooligans home has created less time for extended personal moments, and I am finding it harder to fit everything in to the 17 hours of awake time I have each day. Hopefully this will change a bit in the next month once school starts again.The past week has been a really great week of appointments for the Nateman. His GI appointment this week was the easiest appt we have had in a very long time. His motility is doing great currently, and he has gained almost an entire kilo since April...roughly 2 pounds. That is a huge jump in weight for him, and we are so very thankful for the cushion. He is now on the growth chart for weight and height, and his BMI is looking great for the first time.
I believe that I can also proclaim that the little guy is officially potty trained. He is in undies full time...even at night. It is so funny to see him run through the house stripping down trousers to make it to the potty. I have to admit that he was really easy to train, but I think most of that was because I took a more laid-back approach to training him and was never stressed about it. He's such a big boy now, and I can't hardly keep from pinching that undied-hiney each time he walks by.
Yesterday brought about a great neuro appt...one where we left excited and uplifted about some future plans for our area. After much discussion and work on our neurologist's part, he is creating a mito clinic to be opened soon through our hospital. We have been talking about this for some time now, and I am so excited that the plans are finally coming to fruition. We have had such wonderful response from those in our state wanting to make appointments in the clinic when it does indeed open. I will definitely update more as I learn more specifics, but I can now say that this clinic is definitely going to happen.
So, busy and good times around here.
