Before...waiting to get it cut
During the cut
We made the decision to pull Carter out of his preschool this year. I really didn't want to and we tried to avoid it, but he was missing too many days. Doctor's appointments and therapy times seemed to always conflict with his school days and it didn't help that the school was almost a half hour away. I didn't want him to keep missing days and have to keep paying, so we stopped. I don't know why this was so hard on me, but it just made he sad for him. I know it's my fault for not having everything more organized. I don't ever want him to feel that he can't do things because we have a lot going on with Camden. He doesn't seem to mind or miss it right now. Next year he will do pre k at the school by our house and that will be much easier. I just need to schedule lots of play dates so he can be around other kids. We are off to a good start so far!
We even had a play date with Camden's little buddy P who is 9 months old. He is doing so amazing! He's already crawling around all over the place and I'm hoping he might motivate Cam to do the same!
I'm also going to start taking Camden to a craniosacral therapist this month. I'm not exactly sure what happens at these appointments, but I have heard great things about it so I thought we would give it a try. I'll write more about it after we have our first appointment. We started giving Camden supplements this week as well. We are starting slow and doing Nutrivene D first, and then will start adding more when we are ready. We are doing this more for long term benefits. I will explain more about that in another post too.
Camden has his cardiology appointment this month and I honestly can't wait to go. I just want to hear that the hole is closed, or is at least closing. This is always in the back of mind and I still worry a great deal about it. I just want to be able to put it behind us. If you can spare a little prayer for him, it would be much appreciated!
So far the new year has started off good and continues to be busy. We are adding more therapies and I'm ready to get back on track after our much needed break. It's going to be a great year! I just feel it! ;)
