On a brighter note, Drake's appointment with the orthopedist went well. At these appointments they monitor his right knee, hips and spine. We are aware that eventually surgery will be necessary to correct some issues, but for now monitoring is all that is needed. Drake's lungs were very junky today and he required tons of suctioning. While I'm thankful this is not his norm, it made for a much more challenging day trip.
We're hoping this junkiness is allergy related and doesn't develop into anything more. We have been enjoying the beautiful spring like weather and spending as much time outside as possible...which could definitely be a contributing factor. This constant yo-yo weather is hard on everyone, and especially challenging for kiddos like our Drake. It's a catch 22 though because it is also very good for him to get outside. This weather was perfect for walking and playing at our neighborhood park this weekend with Harper! I loved watching the girls play together! That is something we need to do more often.
Our next Dallas appointment will be to Drake's neurologist. I've definitely learned from this mistake & won't be getting us stranded again...hopefully!
