Calvin Is Happy

Calvin is nearly 18 months! His life is full of ups and downs, sometimes he's feeling good and other times very fragile. He's on new meds for all sorts of seizure related things and it's cleared up some of his cognitive awareness. His lungs haven't been doing so well lately and we have upcoming tests to check his airway which may be obstructed due to poor muscle tone. His vision seems to be picking up (maybe?); I feel like he may see me approaching at times (or maybe it's just his super sonic hearing!). He regularly turns towards windows and bright lights.

Tonight his breathing was good and he was fully "with us". Delight!


P.S. Don't be alarmed with how rough it seems we are with him. He loves deep touch and having us skin to skin. I guess if you can't see then touch and hearing are everything.
