On The Mend

by

We’ve had a quiet start to 2017…Wilson headed back to APU the first weekend of January and hit the ground running in his new schedule of classes.  Max and Olivia still had semester finals to prepare for when they headed back to school on the 3rd.  They were thrilled to finish finals week last Friday!!!  Olivia sailed through her first high school finals week and Max is one big step closer to graduation…the countdown is ON!  🙂

Rudy enjoyed getting back to his friends and teachers at school after the long break.  He’s back to his twice weekly physical therapy sessions but has yet to be assigned to a new OT since his last OT retired in December.  He had a routine check-up with his neurologist a couple of weeks ago.  Because Rudy has been seizure-free for almost two years (his last seizure was in Feb. 2/15), Dr. Corazza scheduled an EEG for tomorrow to determine whether or not we can begin to wean Rudy off his anti-seizure medication.  That would be exciting!!!  We’ll keep you posted…

Rudy has been battling his first bug of the season this week.  He was sent home from school early last Thursday and has been home sick ever since.  Thankfully, his fever broke on Monday and his energy is returning.  We’re hoping he’ll sleep through the night tonight (after several sleepless nights) so he can return to school tomorrow.  🙂

On the mend after a week long viral bug.

Rudy has actually had a long, healthy run the past several months so we pray this bug will run it’s course quickly and be the end of Rudy’s cold and flu season!  😉  ‘Hoping your new year is starting off healthy and happy!
