Blogging about life and raising our five kids with Down syndrome while battling Breast Cancer.

Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor in the morning the devil says, "Oh shit! She's up!"

We got to see our boy!

Warning the pictures are not pretty. Poor baby is tellling us "I uh ooooo" (I love you) and signing the sweetest OK when we tell him to close his eyes and rest. He is in FULL restraints since our little spider monkey managed to kick a nurse right in the chest eventhough she was way up by his head! He has great aim thanks to years of having to use his feet as his only defense.

Oh, poor little man. :-(

Question: Why couldn't they use the non-invasive new halo? I know you said they couldn't use a neck brace because he can move too much, but why wouldn't the new halo without pins work? That looks like it would be easier and more comfortable (somewhat) than a bunch of pins.

Praying for fast healing and minimal pain for your sweet spider monkey. :-) Hugs to you all!
