Busy Week

I took Asher for his second round of botox this past week and I have to say that it has been the hardest appointment in a while.  It's tough having your child not understand why you're holding them down while someone is repeatedly sticking them with a needle.  It goes against every instinct you have as a parent.  Asher just screamed and cried and kept saying mama.  It was really tough but I just have to be strong and remember that I'm doing these things to help him. 

We also went back to the urologist for a post-op exam on Thursday and his doctor said everything is looking great.  I like his doctor a lot but hopefully that will be the last time we see him.

On a different note; I took my twelve year old son, Parker, to see the doctor this week as well.  He cut his finger a while back and it doesn't seem to be healing correctly.  It's healing crooked and he can't seem to bend it very far.  His doctor is concerned that he may have cut a tendon so we have an appointment with a hand specialist this coming week.  My two boys definitely keep me on my toes but I feel so lucky to have such great children. 

My mom and two nieces Iliana and Raevien were in town this weekend for a visit.  They are both so sweet and got along great with Parker and Asher.  We took Asher on a walk outside and got a chance to see what a dare devil he is. He kept wanting to go down a hill near our house as fast as he could with his walker.  He had a giant smile on his face the entire time.  It was so great to see him feeling so care free and enjoying himself.  We also went to Chuck E Cheese to celebrate Iliana's birthday and had a great time.  We did find it challenging for Asher to get around with all the commotion and kids running around.  He had a blast riding some of the toddler "rides" but using his walker isn't an option at places like this and neither is crawling. We're positive that soon enough he'll be up and running around with the other kids.
