Rowan Update

We've had some great news lately.  Rowan had his hearing test at Boys Town on Friday.    He has mild- moderate hearing loss in both ears.  This is what we expected.  We may have tubes put in in the future and they may improve his hearing.

He saw the eye Dr. yesterday his eyes are looking great.  His optical lobe (in his brain) is very small (as is everything in his brain).  They are severe and moderately small. But this is nothing that glasses can't fix someday.

We have had his Occupational Therapist from the school district out.  She is helping Rowan to use all his muscles to keep things working the way they should.  After she checked him out she said she really does think that he will walk someday.  !!!!!  His muscles work lets hope we can get the brain and muscles to work together.

We need to just get these seizures under control.  While he is still having these he can't do much for developing new skills.  It is like he is having a thunderstorm in his mind.

Also he has been taking an ounce of his feeding at almost every feeding.  He is doing so well with his eating.

We (I) are doing much better lately.  Good things all around.  And it's my B-day Tomorrow!

  • Great news and have a great day!
  • What a great update!!!  You must be ecstatic after what the OT said.  So is he eating by mouth a little bit, or is it all through the G button?

  • Good news = good b-day present for you!  (Keep up the good work Rowan!!)
  • That's awesome!!  I'm so glad to hear it!
  • Yay Rowan! Yay Mommy!  So glad to hear the updates! Keep them coming!!!!

    Happy early Birthday!

  • He takes about an ounce from the bottle 2 or 3 times a day.  The rest of his feeding is through his g-button.  He has the ability to eat by mouth he is just very unorganized about it.  He gets so worn out before he can get the whole amount.  Once he gets to solid foods it will be interesting to see how he does.

    Aren't they awesome. They work with my godson and seem to be quite the blessing in improving his development and to make sure he is progressing the way he should be.  

     

    Happy Early Birthday!

  • Yay!  Congrats on the good news.  I'll continue to keep Rowan (and all of you!) in my prayers.

  • Is Dr. Larsen or Dr. Pakovich your seizure doc at Children's?  Great doctors!

    We actually have Dr. McAllistor.  She is a very very grumpy old lady.  She's the only Doc of Rowan's that I don't like all that well.  Why do you ask?

    I work for an adult neurology team and so I know some of the peds doctors.  She always looks a little grumpy when I see her but when I met her at a dinner not so much.

  • Rock on, Rowan! Awesome news. So glad things are (sort of) calming down a bit and you're getting some better news.

    Have a great birthday!
