It was a very boring day today. Kevin is doing fine and we are somewhat settling into a routine of sorts. It's a busy one, don't get me wrong - but it's still a routine.
He did have to get up early today and have his right leg scanned to make a splint for his foot and lower leg. It kinda drags some when he is walking and a lot of times his foot will roll onto its side so we think it will be easier for him if he has a splint to keep it all straight for a while. I can't say if it will be permanent or not, it's too soon to tell, but hopefully it won't be.
We are also discussing Botox injections in his right arm. It's just not really doing anything. He barely has any control and there is no movement whatsoever in his hand. We are pretty close to the nine month mark so I am hazarding a guess that he's never going to have full use of that hand/arm. I sure hope I'm wrong though.
We are also increasing his anti-depressant. We really have just hit a very rough spot and it's hard to work through it when he can't tell us what he's feeling. I just have to guess at what could be rolling through his mind and let's face it - men and women think differently. Who knows - I could be completely off base and even introducing new depressing thoughts with each guess. I just don't know. We currently also have a female therapist and I am working on trying to change to a male. I just personally feel that a male will be able to better know what Kevin is feeling. Wish me luck on getting it changed - so far I am hitting a brick wall...
And to end this post, here is a pic of the kids at the house we are trying to buy. They were messing around, of course, lol.
