Been Forever : an update

It has been such a whirlwind of a summer. Since it is slowly winding down and I am trying really hard to wind stuff up and get things caught up. I thought I would send the before school update.

Ty has done FABULOUS this summer. He didn't qualify for summer school ( boo!) so we decided we would do private therapy until his first surgery of the summer. Of course that never goes to plan and his surgery really messed up the entire month of July and Augusts therapy schedule.

The bonus: we took time off from speech and the toot face is now TALKING. He is doing fabulously well. He picks up 7-8 words A DAY! He is doing really well. Some are not phonetically correct but they are working and functional words.

He received his phenol injections and his tonsils out at the same time in June. Which messed up our casting schedule so we didn't get casts on. I think for summer that works but for winter I would LOVE to see him get casted again.

I am so thankful for Ty and all he is doing. Parenting got HUGELY easier. We hope it continues on the upswing.

The other stuff going on is driving me insane!! Dallas has been sick and he has been in and out of the hospital and them not finding anything. We think it is gal bladder and only have a few more tests before we can finally make them take it out.

We have also been dealing with infertility. 2 years we have tried to get pregnant and have resorted to IUI treatments only to have our meds TRIPLE the cost from our first month so we have had to take a step back. It has been the HARDEST thing for me EVER.

But that is us.

Nancy,
Once again you inspire me! You have a great attitude with all you have been dealt and you still keep on chugging along. I know it's not easy for you and you and Dallas have had many rough times and ups and downs, but you are an amazing person and I hope you realize that. I am so happy to hear all the progress Ty has made. He is such a special kid and it's so good to hear him doing some good things so fast. He deserves it so much. Good luck with your family and the beginning of schoo.

Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
