5th Allergy Treatment

We went in yesterday for Dylan's fifth allergy treatment, Corn cleared - which is a big one so that was great news! He really is starting to enjoy the treatments (the accupressure) and he likes the doctor too. :) He was treated for Grains, which included Wheat, Oats, Tapioca... this is another BIG one so hopefully he can clear it on the first try.

Other than that, he still has a bit of a cold but he has been feeling better and he definitely has gained strength. He is doing quite a bit more babbling lately, he is into more toys and definitely more aware of his surroundings in general.

We talked more about HBOT and signed up to possibly rent a unit in September (he will most likely need another surgery to close a small opening that remains in his soft palate and we anticipate that to be in August again) the HBOT can help that area heal faster. The only thing the doctor is concerned with are his ears - so we will take a couple dives at her office prior to the rental to make sure that his ears tolerate it. The bad thing about HBOT is that you can't really tell for at least a month sometimes if it is helpful to a particular child and if it is working for him, we would most likely need to rent it for more than 1 month and that is very costly. So we will have to make some decisions on how to handle that when the time comes.

Another thing I have been meaning to update on is that Dylan had an IEP done with the school district - right now he qualifies for free preschool that would incorporate speech, OT, and PT - we are not ready to send him yet (I was thinking more like when he is 4 and his immune system is healthy) but they agreed to have a teacher come to the house once a week for an hour to work with him in those areas. So he has seen her 3 times now and will continue for the next few weeks until school is out for the Summer.
