It was a very relaxing day today. We didn't do anything at all except watch a bunch of tv and movies. We were going to go to Wal-Mart, but I got too lazy and Kevin didn't really want to go either so we just stayed home instead.
I did forget to tell you guys two things that have been going on. First, Kevin has been writing his name without needing to copy it. He has even been trying to write his last name, but still has to copy it (who wouldn't, lol). We did find he is able to read for the most part, but when it's something like "raise your hand", he doesn't understand it or he just can't read it. I do know that he doesn't know his body parts for the most part, so I wonder if it's more that and not that he can't read it. He also doesn't know his letters at all so if you ask him to point at the 'A' - he can't. What he is doing is recognizing whole words. Very strange, huh? I would have thought all of that went together, not realizing you can read without knowing your alphabet.
He is also able to tell time. And even funnier - he will get on the therapists' butts when they are late. When they walk in he will look at the imaginary watch on his arm and then at the clock and then at them as if to yell at them. It is so hilarious. And who knows...maybe now he will get his whole hour of therapy instead of 30 or 40 minutes that is left by the time they get here. I think it's time for me to step up and crack the whip (so to speak).
As to the fluid on his head - today it is nearly all gone. Apparently the shunt is working very well. Now they just need to make sure it doesn't pull too much off because that can be just as bad. I think they intend to do another cat scan tomorrow so we will see.
And I can't begin to tell you how excited my kids are that Pittsburgh will be in the Super Bowl. I sure hope that the Steelers can stop by and visit, but then again Breezy would probably drop dead if Troy came in the room, lol. Oh well, we'll see...
First 2 from the Nov kit!
