I need $$$$$ to start growing on trees

So we met with a Dr. G yesterday and found out that the braces Sean has the AFO, and the SMO's are not doing it for Sean. The AFO is causing bruising around his leg and he is still falling a ton.

We were told he needs to get bilateral custom made smo's and a custom made night splint for his right side.

We also found out this past week that he needs glasses which we spent $219.00 I can only imagine what we are going to have to pay for all of these braces.

But we have to do them it is something he needs even if we don't have all of the money to pay for it since I am still unemployed. More on that to come.

Thanks for letting me vent and freak out about money. Then again who doesn't freak out about money.

Here are a few cell phone pictures of him trying on glasses. We should get his glasses later this week and we also get casted late this week too.

Things that make you go hmmmmm

So my mom has been having some back hip issues. So she has been to all of these different types of doctors. I went with her yesterday and we found out that her ANA was positive.

Well my ANA is positive to and the doctor said that it is passed down through pregnancy and could potential cause problems and that both of us..... especially me should get tested further. I made an appointment with him and told him about how Sean suffered a stroke. He said most likely Sean's ANA could be positive to and that could be why is protein levels were so low. We never found out why they were low.

He said that a positive ANA can mean a lot of different things and is not saying this is why Sean had a stroke. But it has definitely peaked his and mine interest in doing further testing on me to see what is going on.

I had my ANA tested well before Sean was conceived and even before we were married. I had mine tested back in 2001 when I was having a lot of issues and it was right after my grandma passed.

They did some basic tests back then and everything can back in normal limits except for the ANA and now they have a lot more tests they test for when a positive ANA comes up.

So this is my things that you make you go hmmmmmm. Got to go make dinner!

Therapy garage sale find

So Sean and I were driving home from the pool on Friday and passed by a garage sale and found a little tikes climber.
I immediately stopped and looked at it. I got it for $10.00 and could not pass it up. Here a few pictures of Sean playing on it from this morning.

It is a great therapy toy because he has to use both hands to climb and tummy control!
