Walking without Braces & SB Clinic

A little surprise happened this week... Grayson has decided he's a full time walker! Usually he crawls around in the evenings after we take his braces off, but the past few nights he has decided to walk!! Here he is strutting his stuff!!

And... he has been able to stand from floor on his own a few times! I suspect he'll master this pretty soon!

Today we had SB clinic and I'm happy to report everything went great! Urology said kidneys and bladder still look perfect so the no cathing continues. And he said since Grayson has remained stable since birth we can begin yearly visits and renal u/s! =) GI was able to give us some answers as to why Grayson never wants to eat. Turns out he thinks Grayson has slow digestion (totally unrelated to SB) and prescribed us something to help him digest food faster. Hopefully, this will help our eating situation. Grayson is up two pounds and two inches in the past 3 months!! Yay!! He's finally beginning to grow! It was great to hear since he hadn't gained an ounce or cm in the prior 6 months! Ortho agreed to give us a script for smo's since he's doing so well in his afo's and starting to walk out of braces. All in all it was a long, but great day!!
