Uh Oh! Look out! Mom has overhauled the kitchen and we are embarking on a gluten free journey. I'm sorry, what was wrong with corn dogs? Anyway, since the gluten free choice has had a great impact on kids with digestive issues and even autism, Mom is going to give it a test drive and see if there are any significant changes for me AND the whole family! If anyone has some favorite gluten free recipes, sites or products, please oh please, feel free to share! Are there any other kids trying this out and seeing results? I have already tested the brownies and they aren't too bad!
Hello friends! Like is never dull with a chromosome deletion! Just ask my mom! I have been really making progress in a lot of areas. I'm now over 2 years and 8 months old. Here are some of my latest achievements:
** Clapping with OPEN hands!! I am actually opening my hands up in general!! Everyone thinks this is a really big deal because my hands were quite fisted and that made it hard to grasp things.
** My speech and my vocabulary are improving and I am continuing to mimic. Mom, Dad and Carter say the funniest things so of course I need to repeat them!
**Stairs! At therapy it's stairs, stairs and more stairs. Sheesh! Everyone thinks I am getting the hang of holding the rail as support to make it up and down although I still need to work on still actually looking up/down. My team continually bangs on each step so I learn to watch where I'm going!
**Glasses! I have a love/hate relationship with my specs. Ok, it's a hate/hate relationship, but I am doing better at leaving them on - except when I get P.O.'d and then I rip them off and throw them. The moral of this story? Don't make the toddler mad!
So while all these amazing changes are happening and I am running around terrorizing the kittens and doing all the things a normal two year old would do, there have still been questions about fevers and now HIVES. Anyone else out there with these dang HIVES? What the heck! The first round of FOOD allergy tests came back fine so now they will test for other allergens. Why all of the sudden? Why is it randomly occurring? Is it related to the odd fevers? Like another glitch in the immune response system? If any other kids with deletions have issues with hives, let us know what you find out! And we will do the same!
