Finally...we have our immunizations...
i don't know if it's because jack got his shots yesterday OR the excruciating heat in our non-air conditioned house(i know...what does my husband do for a living??? he's working on it!), but my little guy has been sleeping ALL day, no exaggeration. he's going on a 5 hour stretch right now, and it's so cute, he has had his thumb in his mouth for the past hour! anyways, we have been having an insurance crisis as most everyone knows, but we weren't able to get jack's shots through our pediatrician. (sidebar: is it me or are doctors offices more and more concerned with money and less and less concerned with patients?)...SO off i went to the orange county public health clinic which was an experience in itself. but the end result was that after waiting over an hour,my son had his shots and bella had entertained everyone in the lobby with her somersaulting and dance capabilities. i can finally feel comfortable taking him out of the house!

we also just got off the waiting list and into a great therapy program down in laguna every wednesday...it consists of 2 hours of therapy (OT, PT, ST, and cognition) and 1 hour of support group for us parents. where is my babe during the last hour you ask? the assistance league of laguna volunteers come and watch the babies! it's fabulous! we also continue to have physical therapy at the house every thursday for an hour (though jack is worn out and falls asleep after 30 minutes!). his PT is so happy with his progress...she thinks he is going to roll from his back very soon...we just need to work on that head control. i will be so happy when jack can keep his head up for an extended period of time!

Glad that you finally got the immunizations.

Sounds like you got Jack into a great place for therapy.
