Isaac doesn't like sitting still anymore now that he can roll everywhere. He wants to go, as much possible, in any possible way he can. He's getting stronger and getting on all fours with minimal support from his PT. The goal is for him to eventually get up on all fours on his own, hopefully within a year or so. I can see him gaining strength, slowly, but he's getting there.
Next week the PT will be bringing a trial of the Kimba stroller so that we can see how he fits in it. Most of all it will have to fit our needs by supporting him and being easy to fold up.
We've also been trying out this new communication device where he can request that we sing him his favorite songs. He doesn't seem to like this one as much as the one from the Guild school, but he's starting to get used to it. Isaac's been a little turkey lately:) On Thursday afternoon he was acting fine and then suddenly he felt like a firecracker and was acting cranky/restless. His temp was up to 102.6 and his heart rate went up to 190 beats per minute and even as high as 200 for a minute! Fortunately after I gave him ibuprofen, his fever and heart rate went way down. He hasn't had any episodes like that since, but on Friday morning the nurse noticed a bunch of drainage coming out of his right ear and he was tugging on it. The ENT office suggested using Cipro drops and then if he gets worse to take him in on Monday. I'm not sure what's going on with his right ear, it's been infected a few times over the past 4 months. He's a small tube man and he has unusually small ear, nose and throat tubes. Usually the doc can barely see inside his tiny ear canals. He's doing better today and he got to snuggle with his Auntie T, cousin Chelstie and Grandma Jean today. He even got to open more birthday presents too!
