An EEG and a Tooth



The past couple of weeks have been full of excitement for us! William had a couple of episodes similar to infantile spasms. So, understandably, we were very scared. The Neurologist got him for an EEG as soon as she could. We got the news yesterday that he is NOT having infantile spasms and I couldn't be more relieved!!

He is also now up to his full dose of Baclofen and I can see some good changes in him. Again, they aren't knock your socks off things but the little things are so good! He can now get his hand to his mouth and keep it there for long enough to get a good chew on his fist! He can bring a toy to his mouth (a Winkel) and chew it! I have seen no extra floppiness at all. His mood continues to be good.

And he got his first tooth!!! He is a terrible, terrible teether! I'm thinking that because he can't gnaw on things like a typical baby, he gets crankier than one, too!

Yea again!

And I swear our boys are too similar. Fletcher got his first tooth on the 8th (although I do think it is the opposite bottom tooth as William's). Love the pictures and congrats again about the EEG.

Oh I bet you were so scared until the results of the EEG were back. It's great news to hear that he isn't having infantile spasms. YAY for the Baclofen helping out and not having adverse side effects. Give your cutie pie teether a big hug and tell his big sister that Eli sends her a kiss ;)
