Sweet Boy :(
He stayed so still when the doctor started
Waiting for the doctor..........
As of now his chin is all heeled up and may just leave a little scar. He is fearless and I'm gonna be in trouble with him one day. Hoping he grows out of that and starts to be a little more cautious, ha not gonna hold my breath. :)
As for Mr.Watson he is getting too big! He still has two teeth, crawling (everywhere), pulling up, and saying Momma, YAY! He is such a great baby and always happy! We started noticing some twitching in his face and some Muscle movements that seemed to be getting more consistent lately, so I called his Neuro Surgeon's nurse to ask about it. You can believe I was panicking to here the word Seizures. I know some people deal with these their whole life but I personally know nothing about them. I was thinking muscle spasms or even maybe just developmental movements, so at first I didn't really pay attention to it, until the last few weeks when it progressed and got more regular. She didn't know for sure of course but with his Cranio and us worried about pressure to the brain occurring we took him in to get checked out. The first thing they needed to do is rule out Seizures and the only way to do that was to hook him up to do a video EEG. I said lots of prayers that night and by morning the Radiology Doctor came in and told us from what she had observed he is not having Seizures (thank u LORD!) but she did let us know he has some Involuntary Movements, also could be known as Stereotypy, which for anyone that has never heard of this its pretty much when you have uncontrolled movements "tics". Which are happening more in Watson's face and upper body, and usually happen when he gets excited or frustrated. Until yesterday I had never heard the term Stereotypy. They asked lots of questions about his Development and I was proud to tell them he is right on track with where he should be. In some cases they can grow out of this, in others not. It is scary looking up terms and not knowing what you will find, good stories and sad stories. I didn't expect to leave the hospital feeling relieved, but knowing these episodes are not damaging his Brain, that they aren't seizures, and I didn't leave the hospital with a prescription for medication is such a relief. We have done very well with being at peace that this is all part of a plan that god has for Watson. Life isn't perfect. Life isn't typical. We all have our unique challenges, experiences, and blessings. We have faith in letting Watson thrive in the life God has planned for him. Thank you everyone so close to us that have been there every step of the way, all the suppport and prayers. Please keep them coming in the next month as we get ready in preparing for Watson's surgery. Here are a few pics from the Hospital. All those wires can't hide this cuteness! :)
