"A-Alligator, B-Bear, C-Camel..."

Will is "alphabet crazy"! He can say and identify every letter, even lower case and LOVES to point them out for you. He is adding new words daily and I would say in the last month has added at least 20-30 words! Can't tell you how long I had waited for him to say Mommy!!! Not only is he adding words, but he is also responding to directions and also vocalizing his wants and needs!! I highly recommend the website http://www.starfall.com/. Will really loves it!
He is seeing a new Doctor at Parkwood Farms Therapy Center and she has added some new supplements that I think are helping greatly. D3 and another chelating agent added to the rest of the ones he is already taking. We are about to start Hyperbaric Chamber dives! Click
We are so very excited about this treatment and to get the test results back from his recent lab work. This week was the year anniversary of Will's diagnosis. You truly see who is there for you and who is not when things like this happen to your family. People surprise you both good and bad. I guess I am just grateful for the good surprises Kevin said "not really an anniversary he wanted to celebrate" and I agree. A lot of sadness and feelings get stirred up when I think about that day things became "official", but we try to look at the improvements that have been made and how far we have come, instead of how far we are behind.
