Making progress & pics!

Our little boy is making progress! Today he wasn't nearly as "spastic" w/ his movements as he has been. We really think the steroids are working. We have some AMAZING drs working w/ Ianchito. I'm not sure of them all but I believe they are Dr. Clark, Dr. Hopkins, & Dr. Luko (not sure about this last one though). I'll have to verify tomorrow when I go in & make sure to thank them every day for helping my boy.

Ian's movements are a bit more controled today which is a huge difference. He was able to get his hand to his mouth on several occations, something that hasn't happened since before the illness began. He also was able to put his hands on his bottle tonight. YAY!!!! When I went to visit, he was able to breastfeed & did it like an old pro. Another big WOOT! He is able to control his neck a bit more & isn't so floppy when he is sitting up. I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!

Here is my little man & his IV. His hair was all spiked b/c of the gel they used to connect the electrodes to his head.


My boy & his flirty smile.


My man & my boy!


I also have to share a couple of cute pics of the girls. On Sunday while I was worried sick, they decided to be cute & sit back to back.



Also, that same morning, my parents got the girls right after they woke up & played w/ them in bed. TOO CUTE!


I want to also thank so many of my friends for coming through & providing us dinner. Thank you Erica & Phil, Amanda & Mark, & our neighbor Julie for coordinating dinners for the rest of the week. WOW!
