Battle Scars

The two older boys went off with one of my sisters to a Halloween party so we have a little peace, quiet and TIME to post tonight!

Colten continues to heal and be a pretty normal baby. Here are some pictures of his scars…

Today is also the first day he can lay on his back so I gave him some time that way. No complaints, but he did shift to be more side-lying eventually.

We had our first meeting with EarlyOn Michigan today. It was just an overview of what they offer and an evaluation of Colten to see what his immediate needs are. They’ll develop an IFSP (Individualized Family Service Plan) – which is basically an IEP (Individualized Education Plan) for children that are 0-3 years old. If you’re unfamiliar with an IEP, in short it is a plan developed for children in school to help provide them with certain therapies, modifications or other special needs arrangements. So an IFSP will provide Colten and our family with a customized plan for working with providers and therapists to give him the support he needs as he develops. Colten will also have therapists assigned to him from the Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) doctor, who we meet with for the first time next week.

That’s all for today… watch for another update next week after his cranial ultrasound and shunt check (Tuesday), the EarlyOn IFSP (Wednesday) and the PM&R appointment (Thursday). Yes, our weeks are busy!
