He prefers to wear sandals over his tennis shoes - just keeping his shoes on used to be a challenge so we let him choose sometimes which shoes. Here Cate is working on blocks, alphabet buttons and pushing and pulling skills...and he initially complains but soon is compliant and will do what we ask...Way to go Andrew :)
Challenging Andrew to do more is what we are attempting in his school . He can place blocks in the bowl, push toys by himself to get the desired sound of the rushing balls instead of us for him and to pedal a bike all by himself. We are encouraging him to do things for himself. He now drinks a whole cup of water at each meal...this is huge for him since he got all of his liquids before thru his solid food that we would throw into the blender. He also has been not as happy and not sleeping thru the nite...so I called the doctor to talk about his medicine and how initially we got some positive but that has worn off...I am waiting to hear back from her. Last week Andrew had a follow up endoscope and tonite that doctor called with the results. He is still neg for H Pyloria and also for celiac disease which we are grateful for. He did see some gastritus in the esophogus and he prescribed a diff. medicine than previcid for that. He also was neg. for food allergies praise God. He has not thrown up since the dilation in Dec. and when the doctor did the scope last week he did not need it so we are done with that. Just want to treat the GERD that is silent meaning it does not go all the way up and out just enough to irritate his esphogus. This may be causing him to be irritable so hoping he tolerates the medicine well....more later.
