Joey Report

For those of you who don't know, this is what is going on with baby Joey. I took him in to the Dr. a week or so ago and mentioned to her that he was really stiff all the time and he can't turn his head to the right easily. She was somewhat concerned and had another dr. come in and check him out. That guy said he had some "genetic anomalies" (stiffness, tuft of hair on his back, small jaw, wierd belly buttom, etc) so, we are heading to LeBonheur August 30th to see some genetics people. Our doctor said that the anomalies don't add up to anything and they may just be random things but he justs wants to make sure that there isn't a pattern to them that could lead to something later in life. We are also heading to meet with some people next Friday to assess his stiffness. There is a slight chance that it could be a neuro-muscular problem, but either way, we are going to start physical therapy with him so that he doesn't fall behind in crawling and walking. So, if you want to throw up a prayer or two, that would be ok with us. Also, if you do that, include Danny. He is looking for a more stable job situation. Yea, thanks!
