this will become private!
I have decided now that vince is getting older alon with the fact that some of his "family" doesn't seem to care much about him or his health i will be making this blog private! please be sure to leave an email address so i can add you to the "invited group"!!! Vince's lungs are doing amazing as far as bacteria goes! he is currently only growing staph which he has had atleast since his very 1st throat culture when he was 3 weeks and 2 days old..so this is great! the heat has caused vince a large amount of trouble with his asthma,i'd say worse than the cold this summer! he is on ventolin and advair inhalers and is not on singulair..i add this crushed to his juice and he does not even notice! it is helping a TON! he is now taking all of his oral medications! his prevacid is also put into his juice..he takes childrens gummy bear vitamins at a 4 year old dose! he also takes gummy fiber chews! i like these better than miralax for him! it feels like less of a medication! and both of his dr's approved it! he even takes his creon 12,000 (enzyme) before his pediasure! BUT it's still not helping him gain weight! and he's getting 1-2 pediasure 1.5 in daily! thats 360 calories per can! he is eating new flavors of cherrios..he bit a bite out of an apple this week which he spit out,but the fact that his teeth went into it is amazing! he chewed a small piece of pretzle at therapy this week and gagged multiple times but was able to work through it! there are so many things that he is doing now! he is fully potty trained (within a week) and only at the age of 2! he still wears a diaper at bed,and i'm thinking about working on that around age 3 or when baby comes! (since i will be up in the night anyway i can get him up as well) he i just doing amazing! he has lost a few more ounces putting him right at 30.0lbs! any more weight lost and he will be under 30..as i start buying things for the new baby and reading more weight limits alot of them go up to 25 and 30lbs! such as infant swings! it's just crazy! his ped said his weight is not good but it's not the worst,and the fact that he is filled with muscle is keeping him looking good and not scrawny! he is talking more now too! he will be starting preschool this fall which i'm both glad and sad...i can't believe he's growing up! in exactly 1 month it will be the 2 year anniversary of his 3rd/last hospital admission date!
