My son took 96 steps around the ward today and I missed it! I am so dang proud of him, but I so wish I had been there! He really is just doing an amazing job of walking and I noticed his balance is becoming better and better too.
He also had some of his staples removed today. The ones that were due to his skull being replaced were taken out, but the ones around his shunt were not. I am not sure what that's about.
And he and Breezy got to meet a few football players today too. They weren't either of the teammates from the Super Bowl, but they are here to watch it. I will have to upload a picture of that tomorrow night though because Breezy took them with her camera and she went home already.
My sister and I actually took off today and went to the beach. We had a great day just lounging around and we also went to John's Pass and walked around the boardwalk shops.
I did learn of a clothing company today that blocks 97% of all UVA and UVB rays too. It's called Solumbra and a woman that I talked to at the beach had it on because she has skin cancer. She said it keeps her cool and keeps all the sun off of her - and she can even swim in it! I found the company online and dang - it is EXPENSIVE - but it's worth it to be able to take him out without him having heat stroke from all the layers they say we need. Now I can only hope that he will wear it - he's so dang particular about how he dresses...
First 2 from the Nov kit!
