All we're doing this week is waiting for a plumber to come fix a pipe that broke Friday. Plus the kids are sick. Hopefully everybody will be mended before DS's evaluation.

Ugh, a broken pipe! That stinks, I hope the plumber gets out to you soon, and hope everyone gets better ASAP too!

We've got a fairly quiet week. On Tuesday, I'm taking Danny to get a vaccine against meningitis, which is "strongly recommended" for kids with CIs and stinks because otherwise he didn't need any shots for turning 2! We're doing his weekly speech appointment at the park Friday if the weather's good, which will be fun. Either this week or next week we'll be video taping a session for the grad student that's been shadowing our therapist for home visits for a few months. I'm a little nervous to see how that goes with the appointment being at the park AND taped - I kind of expect the next couple sessions not to be very productive, LOL.

How are they going to keep him focused at the park? A nice change of scenery, but boy I wish you luck! Is the meningitis vaccine one that has a booster? I seem to remember my brother needing it when he moved into a dorm.

Our weekend was BEAUTIFUL!!!! It is like summer here this week. I have never, in my life, been able to do any easter activities out side. We dyed eggs on Friday outside, and we had our egg hunt outside yesterday as well!!! It is usually still snowing here. Tomorrow is 80 and sunny. It doesn't get up to 80 all the time in the summer even!! We're loving it!

This week we have a few less appointments because of spring break. No EI class or group therapies. Jonah had his casts adjusted today, and his feet are turning wonderfully. He even took a few flat-footed steps for the doctor. There is a 4 degree improvement on the left foot and a 5 degree improvement on the right. Which I'm not sure what that means other than the casts are helping and his feet are going into their correct position.

My mom is coming tomorrow to visit (Yay!!!!) and on Wednesday we have our first official individual speech therapy, on Thursday was supposed to be a meeting for the St. Jude fundraiser I'm heading up but I have to move it to next friday because my committee kind of stinks (how do you plan a fundraiser when no one can come to any of the planning meetings!?!?) and then I have a mommy's morning out with my friends on Friday. Good week, for us!! Craziness begins again next week

Most kids get a meningitis booster when they're older/school age, yeah. Danny will be getting a dosed down version for his size and age. I'm not sure if he'll also need the booster in his "regular" vaccine schedule or not!

As for focus at the park, who knows? We did a PT session at the park, but PT kind of lends itself to that setting! Speech is going to be wild in a park setting, especially if the park is crowded. I think they're bonkers, but both boys will enjoy the trips to the park at least.

That is great news about Jonah's feet turning well with the casts!! Were they able to estimate how much longer he'll need them before he can "graduate" to the next step?
