Another thing we are realizing we are going to need to before we leave is a new car seat. I don't think the one we currently use is going to work because the sides curve in toward Jadon. With his arm in a cast out this his side we are going to need a seat that allows that. We are going to go check out car seats next weekend hopefully!
Grandma Cindy will be traveling with us on the next trip. She has commented that she would like to go and the more that Matt and I thought about the more we liked the idea of having some more hands to help us out. Especially after surgery.
Before we even go for surgery we have another BIG event. Jadon is turning two this month! I don't know where the time is going. He is growing up so fast! We are looking forward to this birthday party and hoping he can really have fun at this one. Last year he had one of his pain episodes right before the party started and was either miserable or asleep for the rest of the party. A few months later we would finally figure out what was causing the 4-6 hour pain episodes.....double inguinal hernia's!! Poor baby!!
Jadon has been doing really great in therapy. His correct Benik splint finally arrived and it really helps him with his hand function. His therapist also created a new splint for his elbow. We would like to see more elbow extension and this splint keeps it in that position and gives him some more function while he is wearing it. The therapist is very happy with the results she is seeing so far.
Here are a few pictures from one of Jadon's last therapy sessions where he got to use Righty to play the Lucky Ducks game!
