It occurred to me yesterday during dinner that I forgot to send out an update before leaving work on Wednesday. I realized that without an update, some might worry that we were in the hospital again. No worries, this is another "no news is good news" update!
Jenelle is doing really well at school, and big brother Jack got to visit last Friday morning. He really liked her teacher and her room. He thought it was very "safe" and very colorful. His teacher said he was a smart little boy (and she's right!)
Jenelle is very close to sitting up, and in fact has mastered rolling to her side and resting on her elbows very well. I was surprised the other morning when I walked into her room to see her sitting on her side with her head in her hand. It was as if she were relaxing or something. She only holds this position for a few seconds, but gets better each day.
Monday afternoon is our 30 day IEP with her new school. I'm confident we will all agree on everything, and I'm anxious to meet her new Physical Therapist and Occupational Therapist. That is the only thing I miss with Jenelle taking the school bus now; I rarely get to interact with her therapists, so I sometimes feel out of the loop. She still seems stuffed up, and I worry that she inherited my allergies (just what this child needs, more drugs!) Other than that, at least she is staying healthy (knock on wood!)
Hope your Thanksgiving holiday was wonderful! We're still waiting to hear from UCLA about the visit to genetics. Thank you for your continued prayers and support - I'll keep you posted!
Below is a photo of Jenelle as she arrived for Thanksgiving... all tuckered out with Grandma and we had only been there for 1 minute!
