Updates!!!!

So Dominick had 2 appointments this week and both went fantastic. The first appointment was with Dr. Koutouby the GI doctor. She said Dominick is doing great he weighs 17 pounds 8 ounces and 26 1/2 inches long. She wants us to try and start switching Dominick off of the Soy formula and on to the regular formula and if that goes well then we are going to try and start reducing the Prevacid. YAY!!!! Big changes coming your way baby :) Hopefully he tolerates everything well. Fingers crossed!

Next we had our appointment at Cranial Technologies for his helmet. The clinician was super happy with his progress. His ears are pretty much back in alignment and his head is rounding out really well. He told Daddy (who took him to the appointment) that he thinks for sure at 3 months he will be done if not maybe as early as 2 months he could be done. YAY!!!! Tomorrow Dominick will have been in the helmet for 4 weeks already. Time is going by so fast. We are both really happy with the decision we made to go ahead and do this treatment for him. The results so far are incredible. Time is flying and the progress is coming along so much better than I expected. The people staring are not that bad. But like my friend Laurie told me "Focus on your family not on other people" so when we are out I am not people watching as much so if there are stares I don't notice them as much. I focus on my crazy son who is now wanting to me in the middle of anything and everything. I have really only had one weird reaction to his helmet and other than that a really good reaction from a a guy passing us while we were at the County Fair who said his son just finished the treatment and it is so worth it and then a few people here and there that are just curious what it is but are very nice in their approach towards it. The kids that see him when we go places are usually the ones that ask a lot or talk about it to their parents but to me I don't mind the kids talking about it they are curious and KIDS that is what they do. It's actually pretty funny to hear how they think.

  1. I'm next door to you on the D-list. Its nice to hear your little guy is doing well. My husband is actually a osteopathic doctor and he has quite a few kids with skull bone formation issues come see him with subtle manipulation he gets amazing results. I'm following you know and looking forward to seeing how things turn out!

  2. Hi there! You're below me on the D-List! I'm sorry you have to deal with people staring. I think it's out of curiousity because you don't see it so often. I'm sure it's so uncomfortable for you and for that I'm sorry. Sounds like you've been through a lot with your little dude!
