Never-Ending Appointments

If you follow me on instagram then you know we spent all last Wednesday over at Duke. Carsyn had three appointments at the Cerebral Palsy clinic. They upped his prescriptions, which have made him very sleepy lately so I may have to go back down. He also got botox injections in his hamstrings and hip abductors. These injections should help with his scissoring and stretching. He has been getting these every 4 to 6 months. This time went much better because I took Carsyn to a different doctor. He has really loosened up in his hamstrings. He was SO tight you couldn’t do much stretching with out him screaming. I like to see him smiling, not screaming.


Dustyn is still doing amazing in school. I can not believe how much he has learned already. He has also been pushing our buttons and testing his limits a lot! I love him so much, but I have been getting very frustrated with him lately. Dustyn sure is cute, even if he does get on my nerves every now and then.Ā fbDSC_2604

  • I can’t believe how big your boys are getting! When I saw the video the other day of Carsyn on IG, I literally got tears in my eyes. What a precious boy. And so glad D is doing great in school! Did he start Kindergarten this year? I can’t believe TT starts next year. Crazy how fast time goes. Have a wonderful week! xoxo

  • Sweet photos! Glad to hear C’s appointments went well. Ugh Xander pushes buttons all the time. I was kind of hoping 5 was going to be easier than 4!! He was a pretty even keeled 2 and 3 year old but then once he turned 4 it was all down hill!

  • I’ve told my kids during…ummm…trying times when I’m trying to be a little lighthearted with them in spite of circumstances, “It’s a good thing you’re so cute.” Apparently I’ve also finished that thought at least once, because a couple of years ago, I said to my youngest (probably 4 at the time), “it’s a good thing you’re so cute, or…” and prompted her to finish the sentence. Her response? Without skipping a beat, she said, “…Or you’d have thrown me out long ago!” LOL (Again, being lighthearted and silly…)

  • My goodness Sarah- they are getting so big. These are the testing years- I can tell you that it does change as they get older. They get more helpful – at least until the teen years arrive šŸ™‚ hehehehe

    They all do the testing. Unfortunately it seems to be at the most inopportune times. My kiddos are 11 1/2 and 10 right now and the oldest just started middle school. The last few weeks have not been so bad but the week prior, well, let’s just say I’m glad grounding him works to get the point across. My daughter, the younger one, has been a dream this past week. I’m scared to get too comfortable though! LOL!
