Life is so busy. The boys have started school. Silas is in Kindergarten & Andre is in Pre-K. Their class is combined. Tage is in first grade and D.J. is in sixth grade.
With the exception of last week, the boys have been healthy. Strep throat plagued our house last week. Silas had some sort of infection at his g tube site and was hospitalized for a few days. Some strong antibiotics cleared it up. Andre, Maben & Rachelle all had some minor surgeries over the summer.
Silas will be doing a trial for the Baclofen pump in just a couple of weeks. If it proves that the pump will benefit him, he will have the surgery after Christmas.
Silas' growth has been unbelievable! He now weighs 41 pounds and is 40 inches long! That is 24 pounds gained & 6 inches grown. I did not take any "before" pictures of him in a diaper until we were home & actually he was in the hospital. Many parents do, but I did not want to remember it, so I did not take a picture. I also did not start keeping track of his weight until he was in the hospital. For 3 days he ate very well & I suspect he was actually a pound or 2 lighter than 17 pounds before coming home. Now, I do wish that I had for comparison. But even comparing 1 month home to now is a drastic difference!
I think that is all there is to catch up on, I will let pics over the last few months do the rest of the talking :)
