Terrific Tuesday!

“He is a wise man who does not grieve for the things which he has not, but rejoices for those which he has.” — Epictetus

Year two-hearing loss as a result of extensive antibiotics and extended illness.... we rejoice for his life and continued path to wellness and started researching/exploring options regarding the hearing loss :)  
On a positive note, we got rid of the monitors, the meds, the oxygen AND the feeding tube!!  He had just started to learn to eat, drink (he never knew how because he was so ill and heavily ventilated for a year) AND with the help of Early Intervention, he can sit up, stand up and walk!  Most kids do all those things in year one but we had to wait to year two....


*I'm teary on this one-hadn't seen this pic in years..I had to trust putting a deaf child on the bus BY HIMSELF* aug 2006
He was going to the Maryland School for the Deaf....I drove to the school behind them :):)

Awww he was sooo tiny! I bet it was hard to watch him ride the bus. So glad he's doing well!
