Well two quick updates!
So this past Friday it was nice here so Bri and I and the kids were outside. Bri and I both did some yardwork and at one point I found a worm and took it over to Caleb to show him. This is kind of how it went:
Me: 'look Caleb a worm'
Me: 'no not a caterpillar, a worm. Worm. Worm' (repetition works well for him to hear) 'do you want to touch it?'
Me: 'oh come one, yeah you do'
you could see him hesitating but he finally touched it and then so excitedly he turned to Brian and screamed 'I TOUCH IT!' It was so great to see how excited he got and to hear him put together a sentence-ON HIS OWN!
Lastnight I was doing the dishes and turned around and saw this:
When I saw it, I teared up and stood and watched. Not only was he doing a great job but he took it on his own to go over to the table and get her food to feed her. They were giggling. He was so good at it.
Well, Caleb has another eye infection and the Ocularplastic Surgeon told us if he should get another one to call her or take him to the Children's ER. So I called her this morning and she did not have office hours but agreed to come in to see him to see how his eye handles an eye infection (this has nothing to do with the 'lazy eye'). So she thinks from what she can see that he possibly has puncta that they may just not be in the typical place that you or I may have them-she said she will know better when she sees him in the OR when they re-do his nose from his cleft. But she said the encouraging news is she does not think there is anything wrong with the tear duct (not to be confused with the puncta-the hole that drains to the tear duct) so she was very happy she got to see him. There was even another doctor who looked at him too and gave the same opinion. So he is on an antibiotic and hopefully that will help and then we can use it as needed when his eyes act up. I really like this doctor, what a great person to make the time to come in and see what is going on.
So this is where we are!
Thanks for checking in!
God Bless you all!!
God Bless Caleb and Camryn!!
