This has been a good/bad day. I am soooo happy and soooo grateful for everything that we got accomplished today. Joey got started on his braces. We come back in a week to get his legs casted and then the braces will be ready in 2 weeks. Yay for that! After that appointment, we went to the neurologist. And then, we waited. And waited. It wasn't too long. It wouldn't have been bad at all, actually, if I didn't have a very sleepy and very hungry baby yelling at me. When we got called back, Joey got his botox injections. This is to loosen up his leg muscles. When he stands up his knees stay bent because his muscles are so tight, so, this will help get him able to balance and stand up. I'm so glad he was able to do this, but it completely broke my heart. Joey is not a crier. He has a very high pain tolerance. Things usually don't make him cry. But, he got 2 shots in each leg....in his calf muscle. He literally screamed for at least 15 minutes. It hurt my heart for him. I'm supposed to be able to see the results by tomorrow and then the stretching begins. Gotta get that boy straightened out. I don't like seeing my baby sad, it's something I'm not used to with Joey. But, he is happy and sleeping right now and on the way to a more normal life!
