Beckett is still doing well. We are still HOME! Though we are beginning to find some sort of routine, but unfortunately that routine consist of minimum/restless sleep, a rigid schedule, and many appointments. Leah has been a champ keeping it all organized while I try to help as often as I can within my obligations. It’s been extremely exhausting, but we are so thankful to have Beckett finally home (….and STAYING home!)!
It appears we are finally getting close to starting some therapy for Beckett. Though I wish this could have begun the very next day we were home, we were forewarned that it may take quite a few weeks to get “everything” going. So, as I was saying, it appears it may be actually starting as early as next week! Yay! We are excited to continue to see Beckett progress, especially in “normal” things like “tummy time”, crawling, eating, maybe even talking some (…eventually).
We took Beckett out on his first non-medical related field trip…and he did great (well, for the most past). We took Beckett to Anderson University where he witnessed his first collegiate volleyball game. Go Aunt Krissy! He did so well. There were loud buzzers, horns, etc…and Beckett just sat there and watched. In fact, he fell asleep about 1/2 hour into it. Unfortunately, at the end of the game is when he decided to have a mini-meltdown, which, coincidently, was when a bunch of people wanted to come see the infamous Beckett. He greeted them all with a scream…but at least it was memorable, right? 😉 Anyways, that was pretty neat, and he slept really well that night in particular. So, going forward, we hope to start taking him out more, especially before the weather gets “nasty”.
Please continue to pray for Beckett’s continual healing in addition to Leah and my fortitude. These past few weeks have been very tiring for the both of us, and for me in particular…I’m officially “under-the-weather”. I believe it’s just a “common cold”, but we were specifically made aware to be cautious of things like a “common cold”, as it could be RSV which would be very dangerous for Beckett to catch. Just please pray for a hedge of protection around our family, as we have not crossed the finish line yet. Leah and I desire (and need) more patience and more strength for Beckett and for one another. We do not want to leave any room for a wedge to subtly form between us or our family. Though I do not believe we are anywhere close to that happening, I believe a preemptive strike on this inevitable threat would be wise.
Thank you all for your continual care and support. We still have people texting us often, bringing us meals, mowing my yard, praying often, etc. etc. Your support and encouragement is so greatly appreciated! “Thank You” is simply not enough.
