Busy, busy, busy day!
This morning, Dr. Mike told us that Jared will be here about 2-3 weeks. He thinks that Jared's problem with his right arm is from a contusion on the left side of the brain, which shouldn't be permanent. Jared started using his right arm more last night to eat.
Jared had some pretty big meltdowns this morning during therapies. He refused to do anything for quite a time. We decided to set up rules...finish therapy, earn a reward. The reward Jared likes is having friends here. So he was motivated to finish therapy strong this afternoon so his friend, Hayden can spend some time here tomorrow night.
Jared had to have an audiology test. He has a partial hearing loss in his left ear. An ENT will be called in to do some more testing. The pre-diagnosis, is that the tiny bones behind the ear drum may be broken.
We had a special visitor, baby Keaton (5 weeks). His mommy Sammy and Sister Dunn came too. Thanks for coming to visit. Jared loved holding the baby.
We are headed down to get an EEG, to see how things look and see if we can take him off of the seizure medicine.
Better day than yesterday!
