Update on Nicholas

Nicholas is a little bit yeasty these days — we were all sick a couple of weeks ago and I missed two days or so of getting his supplements into him, so I knew it was inevitable – but we’re pushing through it and fighting the yeast beast yet once again. I have also increased his Enhansa – and while that has anti-fungal properties, it also is anti-viral – which can create yeast at the same time, so while it’s doing it’s thing with the virals, we’ll just have to deal with it and push through. He’s not too bad as a result, but I have noticed his language can be a little bit slurry at times and his receptive language is not where it was before the yeast reared it’s ugly head.

That said, I am amazed more and more everyday what Nicholas is saying and doing. Over the past week, he’s been playing all by himself at starfall.com (great site) – and then I showed him NickJr.com – and he’s playing with these web-pages like he’s an old pro. Just watching him navigate these websites and games has been just amazing.

Last night, I asked my husband to dump out the remainder of the coke and diet coke bottles which we had left over from company (we no longer drink that crap, but occasionally, I just want a coke!) – and Nicholas got very upset. He came to me and said, “Mommy – daddy dumped the soda down the drain – why did he do that?” I just about cried.

Yesterday, we drove past a little amusement park on our way somewhere – and Nicholas pointed at it and wanted to stop there and go on the rides – I was floored. Not only was he sitting on the opposite side of the car and he saw the park, which was impressive – but he actually knew they were rides and wanted to go on them!

Last week, we took a ride into New Hope and stopped at the train station for Nicholas to see the real trains – which he loved. He has asked every day since if we could go back to the train station.

I’ll add more as I think of it…..

    Amazing progress…

    BTW, I think I screwed up on Enhansa. I ordered it but I ordered the capsules instead of the powder and in the box it says it is not intended to be opened and mixed with food. What should I do now? Wonder why they are saying it is not designed to be opened and mixed with food. Is my money gone waste? 🙁

    Oh just spoke to the Enhansa folks and they said its fine to go ahead and open it. 🙂
