Just wanted to say hello to everyone in here, as I have just picked
up this echo from my hub. I had seen it before, but was not totally
clear on the discussion until now.
As some already know, my youngest son (4 years old now) has Down[...]
godo at sports and has a good pitching arm. We were outside today
He has been a real blessing and a wonderful child. One thing we[...]
still need to get through is he needs an operation for
Hirschsprung's Disease. It is where a section (at the end) of the
He has a clean bill of health (including heart tests) otherwise.
Once we get through this operation, he should be in much better
shape. No long term issues.
Was wondering if anyone is familiar with any of those operations?
Looking forward to discussion with everyone.
I should have looked for the description early on. I thought it was
only for people that survived some type of adversity (based on the
echo tag). Once I found the description, it make more sense to me.
We have been working around our son's bowel issue since he was born.
It is difficult to get a procedure done when there is no "clear and
present danger at that moment", but this does need to be fixed. The
risk of not doing it long term is worse.
Still working with him to increase his vocabulary. That will keep
him from getting as frustrated at times when he acts out due to
people not understanding what he wants. He knows more sign language
than I do. :)
What is incredible to me is the amount of medical professionals that[...]
people need an medical refresher course! It seems to be a battle
with some to bring them up to date.
Not a bad idea. I have learned some of the basics from our son and
his teachers. :) He has been getting better at verbalizing.
The medical professionals need to get up to date on facts and stop
living in their own world..
One of the days this week when I dropped my son off at
school/daycare, I got to see him take the "Apple" with his name on
it and put it on the tree. I was VERY impressed. 4 years old, he
was able to find his apple (the one with his name on it), and put it
on the tree with the other kids that were present.
Very cool! He impresses me more and more each day!
