Answers to your questions...

We've been out sick since Valentine's Day and now all three kids are sick with a coughing viral infection. Darsie also got her finger stuck in a door at school and suffered a compound fracture and needed five stitches. She is healing well and it looks like her finger nail will grow again (the white part where the finger nail grows from was completely unattached which led everyone to worry that she would be unable to grow a nail again).

I have been trying to answer some of the questions and give replies in the comments/email.

Updates on Darsie. We went back to her rehab doctor (the one who has done her Botox in the past). We had pretty good success with this last round of serial casting but even he agrees that the Botox was pretty much ineffective. He wrote her a prescription for Baclofen but then she had her injury and I didn't want to mix antibiotics with the Baclofen. I'm still hesitant about the Baclofen but we are going to give it a shot.

Oh My goodness I hope you guys get through this well. i am sorry to hear about miss Darsie and her finger but glad to hear it is healing well. i hope the precious littleones feel better soon good luck with the baclofen when you guys begin to start it. my doctor offered it as a premedication before MRI recently to help with spasms and i refused it as i have never taken it i have used valium so that is what she gave me. i don't blame you for being hesitant especially with such a little one good luck

Oh, you've had a rough time of it lately. I hope things start looking up. Thinking of you.

OH, the illness. Yuck. Sorry.

I've heard mixed information on the Baclofen--I'm sure you'll be able to tell pretty quick how you feel about it.

Hi! I'd love to talk about serial casting, botox, & baclofen. My son Miller is currently casted, and we have been prescribed baclofen (we're not taking it). He just turned 3. Any interest in chatting offline about this? I don't have many people to compare notes with : ). We live in Austin, TX, and Miller is in week 2 of serial casting. No Botox yet, but it's on the horizon. I'd love to get your feedback about it. My email is: stephaniepeoples@gmail.com.
Hope to hear from you!
