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.

Bert is 4 months!!

Life has been crazy hectic busy and I just haven't felt like blogging, so sorry for the absence!

Darsie did really well with the serial casting. We ended up going...three rounds, I think. Her foot still turns in a little but it is SO EASY to get her positioned correctly in her DAFO now, that I am calling it a success.
