Back to the grind...

Well, there was only so much time I could take before I ended up back in the proverbial saddle. Today marked my first day back to work, and it was really quite good. People seemed happy to see me, I think. I discovered how fast your feet forget, though. By lunchtime, my feet were KILLING me from wearing heels. Seriously. Got out the little wooden roll-y thing I keep in my office for foot massage. And it only worked to a certain degree. I'm considering hauling out the foot spa for a little relaxation.

Connor went back to day care full time today. It went well, from what I understand on his daily sheet. I saw a picture of him working on a painting with Miss Makina, one of the two teachers in his class. His last molar FINALLY started it's slow descent on Wednesday last week, so now Connor has at least part of all his teeth for the first 2 years. While the drool production is up again, I am glad that the molar is in so that we can work more on his chewing.

Well, that's all for now. I have some dishes to do, some thank you notes to write, and some laundry to fold. And then, some feet to massage.....

Assistive Devices for Connor

So last week, in the midst of my recuperation, a nice man came to the house to measure Connor for a stander. The one we have is old, and only a loaner. They (the PIE Program, Early Intervention for Arlington County) are pruchasing one for Connor, so we'll have shiny new one that looks less Luddite. It's called the Giraffe, and is a prduct of Sammons Preston ( WE aslo took Connor to the therapy center where both his speech and physical therapists work to try out some swings. My parents are going to buy one swing for Connor and build the other. My parents take better care of Connor than I do most of the time. Of course, I'm still not even allowed to pick him up and am at my mother's mercy when it comes to holding him!

More Tiggors

I've gotten some happier pictures of Connor on Halloween and wanted everyone to know that he's actually okay with the costume :)

I rise...

Sorry for the lack of information - I've been in the hospital being repaired, and I'm happy to say that this time, it worked! I'm supposedly all fixed up. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is, in fact, much rejoicing! The worst part of the surgery, other than the lack of eating for 5 days, was that I was not allowed to see Connor. :( Lee brought me videos of him to try and assuage my sadness. It was wonderful to get home and see him again. He's had a lovely time with his Daddy and Granny Kate, and on Saturday his Nana and Poppy came to see him as well.

In any case, I'm still "in recovery" and get tired way faster than I used to, so that's all for now. Tomorrow I'll try to muster the energy to post about his new stander that will be ordered soon and is less Luddite than the Lechter-Special we have now...
