Time for some updates...

Sorry it's been a few days since I have posted anything... I do have a few things to share this morning...

First of all, Cade had the U/S on his sacral dimple on Monday. As far as the U/S tech is concerned, he is fine. The spinal cord is floating freely and there doesn't seem to be any problems. For one thing, he was kicking like crazy... we thought he was going to either crawl off of the table or get up and walk out of the room. And two, his bowels are functioning - he let a few stinkers on the tech out of sheer anger & frustration! It was a horrible experience though... Cade was sooooo scared & I think that the combination of him having to lay on his tummy for so long, the U/S wand being pressed into his back so hard, and just the whole procedure was scary to him... it was horrible. HORRIBLE! He cried so hard I thought he would be sick. And then after it was over and I finally got him settled down, the tech tried to make friends with him - reached out to shake Cade's little hand and Cade puckered his lip out and started crying again! He wanted NOTHING to do with "Mike". The test results will be inconclusive because the tech couldn't get the measurement of his spinal cord (Cade wouldn't be still long enough to get it). I guess the measurement is the main part of the test... he said it would be up to the pediatrician as to whether she will want further testing, but he didn't think she would since he is not having any problems that would warrant further testing.

Cade is sleeping better again - I know, when things are going good, I shouldn't talk about it. I'm not bragging this time... just letting everyone know that he IS sleeping better :)

For those of you who haven't noticed, there is a link in the right margin - Cade's Photobucket. It is password protected, but I have left a password hint, which by the way, IS case sensitive & you will need to use upper & lower case. Cade's Photobucket contains my favorite pics of Cade (and I take a LOT)... I will add to it every time I upload pics from my camera. There are sub albums, categorized by month. Hope you all enjoy!

I need to get some work done, but before I go, I want to share these pics... I finally found a Johnny Jump Up for Cade. I have heard about these & how much fun they are. I was having a hard time finding one - thought I was going to have to order it online, and found this one at Walmart (it was their last one)... I think it will be even more fun to him when he learns to jump... right now he just kind of spins around in circles, haha. So here is Cade in his Johnny Jump Up!
