I again will be asking for left overs...
This will be just a quick post to let you all know what is going on today so you can be praying for Ben! Today he will get another round of Botox. I had a meeting with Ben's doctor about it last week and we decided that this time around Ben would just get it in his peck and shoulder area. We talked about doing the neck but Ben has been making some big improvements on head control, mouthing words, swallowing, and just doing really well. If we did the neck we would take the risk of weakening all that for at least the next two months. I thought...if Ben is making improvement then I don't want to strip that away from him. If he is still not improving and is where he is at in 4 months from now then we will bring it back to the table to talk about it!
So around 2ish today they in his docs words "will be getting Ben good" with some good doses of Botox. He is going to be injecting Ben with more then last time so that is going to be a good thing! There are a few risks involved so please be praying that it all goes well and that it will be very benefitial for Ben. Also please pray that it works and that Ben's shoulders, arms, chest and all relax and are able to start working more!!
Again, I asked for the leftovers of the injection but he just laughed at/with me! Oh well, I will keep trying!!
