To Flu Or Not To Flu


Andrew went today to his 9 month check up and the Dr said he looked great and was right were he should be. It has been very encouraging watching Andrew lately as he is progressing in milestones. Due to Andrews stroke we did not know what would be ahead of us and what he would struggle with. But God is good and each day we continue to look to Him and see what He will do in Andrew's life. I am encouraged that he is scooting and moving right along. Still has not said any words like Dada or Mama but we are hoping he will one day soon. Also on a side note he has been going to OT weekly and recently we took him to a neck and back Dr. that specializes in head injuries or traumatic births for kids. After we could tell a difference in how lose Andrews hand was and he was using it more. We go back in a couple weeks and the Dr will look at Andrew again.

Also the pediatrician recommended we give Andrew the Flu shot, what are your thoughts? I am thinking of not doing it but if you have any advice please let me know, thanks!!

It's so neat to watch the Lord work in Drew's life and your's! I brought up the flu question to Jay and he too thought it a good question. He wants to ask his Dr., who's opinion and advice he doesn't take lightly. I'll let you know what his doc says.

I've never done the whole flu shot thing... but It's good to look at all the information and make an informed decision.

To answer your question on my blog: The sale was in Dallas. Are you in the Dallas area?
