Zacchaio was discharged last Saturday evening from UCSF's PICU with his admission amounting to a 6-day stay. His previous admission in July for identical reasons lasted well over a week, so our decision to take him in early most definitely served him well.
Here is where we stand today...
- We still don't think we're seeing any seizures. Hallelujah!!
- A couple of posts ago I mentioned that we were seeing Zacchaio's ophthalmologist for his lazy eye. On the morning of his appointment, we were playing in usual fashion while I incorporated eye tracking exercises. I couldn't believe what I saw... his lag had completely disappeared and it hasn't shown itself since! He's amazing at problem-solving.
- Zacchaio is developing tremendously! ABM therapy is doing wonders for him. He is so alert, engaged, and attentive. I can't get him to stop moving during diaper changes; his excitement for rolling over and discovering what awaits him on his play mat cannot be restrained! When we're in the car he leans forward and out of his chair, laughing as he looks out the window to the left. To his right he consistently searches for Alkaio in hopes of some kooky 4-year old entertainment. He continues to explore what his voice is capable of and is making new sounds every day. At the moment he is showing a preference for the bear cub growl. Ultimately the timing is perfect, as Cal volleyball season has started and we're hoping to attend a game soon. Go bears!
