First day of Occupational Therapy

Today was our first day of O.T. ( it was more like an evaluation to see what we gotta work on) either way, Brady did great! He just loved Ashley! He is a big flirt!! She is going to start coming out weekly to get Brady doing things that he shold be doing at his age and hes not.. We have noticied such a big improvement since we have taken him off all his meds already. In the past month alone we have stopped Topamax, Phenobarb, Hydrocortizone, Prevacid, and ACTH! So even without the therapy he has already come so far. So this should help even more.
We also saw Dr. Parker today! We love seeing Dr. Parker. She absolutely loves Brady (who wouldn't?) and he absolutely loves her. Our bi- weekly visits are now going to be every 6 weeks! We will miss seeing her as often, but we are glad that Brady man is improving so well! She is very pleased with his progress and has scheduled another EEG just to make sure everything is as good as it seems to be! She seems to think that the reason for Brady's all the sudden panic at bedtime is seperation anxiety!! She said 9-12 months is when they start this and that is right where he is. So now I dont feel like there is anything wrong with him when he just all the sudden starts crying when I put him down... and I can finally explain to Chris that he is not spoiled.. He is supposed to be doing that! He just wants his mommy! and there is nothing wrong with that!
Tonight Chris has invited all his family over for supper.. His sister and her kids are down from Southaven and his Aunt is back in town from work so it will be a good reunion. It will be the first time that we have all been together since the funeral (Chris' dads). I think it is good to keep in contact with your family so I am glad we are doing it! Chris and I just got back from Bay St Louis with my family. We went to the MS funeral Dirctors Association convention. We had a great time! The first night there, all 5 of my siblings and their significant others were there and my Memaw and we had a great time at dinner then at the Casino! It will take Brady weeks to get back on a schedule but we had a good time. So did he!
Till next time,
Jenny

Yeppers, that's Chris teaching Brady how to 'chill'. What a pair.

Luv you all soooooo much.
