Evan Update

I know it has been a long time since I blogged. I am sure I probably wrote that same statement in previous entries. Time just seems to get away from me. Evan is doing great and growing like a weed. Items of interest:

1. He had a follow up appointment in March for his surgery in February and everything looked great.
2. I had to take him to the Doctor on March 19th. He woke up and told us his knee was hurting and he wouldn’t walk or put any pressure on his left leg. I took him on to daycare thinking that once he got to school he would start playing and forget about it. Well, that didn’t happen. His teacher called and said he was crying, not putting any pressure on his leg and crawling. So off to the Doctor we go for a two hour visit which involved x-rays (me and a tech having to hold him down) and a finger prick. Luckily the Doctor did not find anything wrong. She said it could have been a virus that was making his upper leg hurt. Well, he took a nap and within an hour of waking up, he was running around playing like nothing had every happened. It was a traumatic morning but at least it was nothing serious.
3. We had a really busy Saturday on March 27th. I took Evan to Bumper Jumpers and he bounced and jumped to his heart’s content. That afternoon it was off to an Easter Egg hunt at the local Rec Center and that night, a neighborhood cookout/Easter egg hunt. He was one tired little boy that night

4. Easter we spent with our families. We were at Mommaw and Poppaw’s for dinner on Saturday night with the family and the kids had a great time hunting Easter Eggs. Although, Ashley and I conveniently left the kids’s bubbles behind. Easter Sunday found the arrival of the Easter Bunny. Evan was really excited to get a new lawnmower and two Dragon Tale DVD’s. Easter lunch that Sunday was with Granna and more Easter presents. Of course, Evan didn’t want to sit still to have a picture made in his Easter outfit

5. Evan had his follow-up hearing test on March 13th and it also went well. His hearing seems to be right on track and we don’t go back for a year. The audiologist is hoping to get him to the point where he is willing to wear the headphones for the test. Dr. Phipps (ENT who did his surgery) also came out to talk to him. I told Dr. Phipps that he was the only Doctor Evan didn’t cry about having to come see.
6. We met with our Social Worker on Friday, April 30th for our 3rd Post Placement Report. They are required at 6 months and years 1, 2, and 3 home. So only one more to go. It went well and it is always exciting for someone to see how much he has changed.
