Hello World! How was your month? We hope it was fantastic! Gideon has had a pretty tough month.

Hello World, This past month was an exciting one! I began to work as Gideon’s CNA, which is a godsend financially. Baby sister Zoe came 3 weeks early. Gideon has begun to use his stander again and he has made great strides! He still has his ups and downs with getting both of his medicine […]

Hello World! It has been an interesting month or so. For the first 5 days, Gideon ate both medicine bottles. His slump only lasted 3 days, though. It appears, while he still has ups and downs where he does not get both medicine bottles, the slumps are shorter and less frequent. For another 4 days, […]

Hello World! The past month or so has been interesting. Overall, Gideon has had both medicine bottles most days. It seems that this annual roller coaster will be ending soon.

Hello World! Hope everyone is doing well! We have been riding the end of Gideon’s seasonal roller coaster. On Sunday, January 28th, Gideon did not have Miralax for a few days and got really constipated. Although children with CP may have a higher tendency toward constipation than other children, Baclofen increases the risk of constipation […]

Hello World! Sorry that it has been so long! I have been away due to the re-emergence of the last sinus infection and Gideon’s winter roller coaster medication/sleep schedule. Gideon has been taking his medications more regularly. He still has days where he only takes his meds once per day. As a result, we have […]

Hello World! To follow up Gideon’s therapeutic path, his PCP has ordered an intensive evaluation from PT, OT, and SLP. Their evaluation will be used to help us build a therapeutic schedule for Greg and me to follow. This would help us keep a consistent therapeutic schedule regardless of what happens with home therapy visits. […]

Hello World! Gideon has had a wonderful week. While he is still having those fun cycles, he has not missed any more medicine. He has begun to really work toward crawling, standing, and eating. He has been much more vocal and giggly. We have decided to increase his dosage slowly. Since his last dosage was […]

Hello World! Over the last few days, I have begun to think about a small increase in dosage for Gideon. We will discuss this with his therapist this week. He seems to have acclimated and seems eager to move forward with his abilities. Yet, as his parents, we want to be sure that he is […]

Hello World! It has been an interesting few days. To explain, I will have to give some background. If you aren’t familiar with cerebral palsy, you may not know that it’s a spectrum, in a sense. It is a blanket term for brain damage that shows one (or some combination) of a few different sets […]
