A Busy Monday

Jack had a clinic visit in Omaha this morning and PT this afternoon back in Lincoln. His weight is a bit down, and he still have bouts of constipation and nausea at times. Seems like a never ending battle. The high dose of Accutane he takes has a list of side effects, a few beings it's an appetite suppressant, (which is opposite of what we need!) constipation and it's hard on the ole tummy. We take our last dose on tomorrow (Tuesday) and have a two week break before we start the last and final two week dose. We go back on Friday for another weight check. Fingers crossed he'll be up a half of a pound. Bring on the chocolate, cheeseburgers and french fries!

We had a great weekend. Friday, Jack and I saw the movie Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day. We both really enjoyed it.
We took a few walks each day to build up some stamina for some trick or treating on Friday.
And, the greatest news ever... (drum roll please) Jack is walking on his own now. Hooray! He's still a bit unsure of himself, but he was out walking around the yard and kicking the soccer ball with Chase this weekend. It was great to see and a definite a confidence booster.

Today I'm grateful for:
- Jack walking again!
- loving the fall leaves. (maybe not so much the raking)
- thank you to my dad and Shellee for coming up on Sunday to help out with some yard work.
