Still waiting...

My little boy is still not back to normal. I talked to Dr. Nguyen yesterday & she restated that we needed to wait a while (up to a month) to allow his motor skills to get back on track after everything he has gone through. That is not helping ease my worries. He has a beautiful disposition, giggling & smiling at us & overall enjoying life, or so it seems BUT he doesn't have any motor skills back. He is not doing anything that he was doing before. It seems like he has reverted back to being about 3 months old. If that is the case & he relearns the skills, I don't have a problem dealing w/ that. I just hope there isn't something bigger going on. Everyone around me seems to think the trauma he suffered warrants this type of reaction. I really hope that they are right & I'm just being an overly worried mommy.

Anybody out there in blogger land have any ideas? Feedback/comments are welcomed!

Astrid,
I've been following your blog for a few weeks now. I'm so sorry about what you're going through! I have no experience with this. I really don't think there is a cause to worry (although I know that you will...). But it takes so much strengh & energy for our little ones to crawl, sit up, pull up etc. It's a big workout for them! Even if it doesn't look like it. Think, if you just had a horrible flu + seizure + hospital stay, would you want to/ have energy to go to the gym to work out?! Ian will be back to normal within a couple of weeks. I'll keep you and your family in my thoughts:)

I don't have advice, but I did want to offer sympathy! My six-month-old has had several seizures recently so I know how completely terrifying it is. (((HUGS))) Let me know if you ever want to talk. I can certainly empathize! You are children are beautiful!
