Quick Check-in

connect-sign-language-mdWe've been working on Marc's memory retention, lately. Since I had taken American Sign Language years ago and know absolutely no one who signs to use it, I thought it would be fun to teach Marc and see how much he was capable of retaining. We've been working on it for a week and he has done amazing. He knows the complete alphabet and is learning new signs every day.

This is helping me make the decision on whether I allow them to operate or not. He is getting so much better than he was just months ago. I don't want to disrupt that process and start all over again unless it is absolutely necessary.

Other than that, he has some swelling in his right eye and I've been watching that but he has been outside in the environment a lot more than usual this past week, so I have to take that in account.

Overall, everything is going really well for us right now. We have a doctor appointment this Friday and one next Tuesday. And we are hoping that we can cut down on some of the medication, specifically the blood pressure medications. We'll see.
