Quick Update

Sorry for the late update, but Jack is doing super! Last Friday Jack had a quick weight check, he clocked in at 38.2lbs. Yep, he gained 1.2 pounds in five days. Rock star here!

Trick or Treating weekend was good, it was a little chilly for him even being all bundled up, but he got a fair share of candy. His cousins shared some of their candy with him too. It was a nice weekend getaway.

Jack is on an appetite stimulant (Megace) and it's working like a charm. It's was great hearing him say last week that he was hungry. We haven't heard those words for so long. He feels better, mentally and physically and is walking around good. I would say today, Thursday, he weighs a good 40 lbs.

Jack's still busy with physical therapy twice a week and of course his school work. When he wasn't feeling so hot with constant stomach issues, it was hard for him to do homework. But now with him feeling better, everything is easier. We have our fingers crossed that he'll be able to slowly transition back into school after Christmas vacation.

We have another doctor's appointment on Monday, weight check again and labs. Jack will start his last two week dose of Accutane on Monday. And then no more meds! Hooray!

Today I'm thankful for:
- no brainer, but Jack finally gaining weight!
- great weather for yard work. It's almost done.
- everyone happy and health in our house. Flu shots scheduled next week for us.
