Caitlin Update After Yesterday’s Doctor’s Appointment

Friday, October 10th, 2014

Well, the good news is Caitlin regained the weight she had lost over the first 6 months of 2014, so she’s back to her pre-surgery weight. The bad news is there’s no apparent explanation for her vomiting beyond “Aicardi Syndrome.” Her Upper Gastrointestinal study came back clean (nothing is out of place physically, and stomach contents […]

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

  1. New Verity Episode! Episode 46: Communication Breakdown is live. 2.

Updates of Caitlin and stuff

Tuesday, April 15th, 2014

This entry is reblogged from Michael, who said it better than I.   The picture tells the story. That is Caitlin sitting up straight and unassisted 2 1/2 months after her spinal fusion surgery. $300,000 or so worth of medical procedures have done what they were supposed to do. Caitlin can sit again without discomfort, […]

5 Things Make a Post (with pictures)

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

1. Caitlin had a rough start to the week, being kind of barfy overnight on Sunday and most of Monday. We’re not sure of the reasons–often it’s just allergies or random throat tickles.

Cait will likely be returning to school the first week of April, just after their Spring Break, which is next week. We’re using the play-it-by-ear method […]
