So a little while ago we got back the levels from his last blood test. His direct bilirubin is 5, which is awesome since in January it was 7.9. It's going down! I thought it was, but it's nice to see the numbers as proof. A little less than good news, his cholesterol level was 953. Normal is 100. It's not as high as some kids with AGS, but definitely higher than normal. No xanthomas still, so that's good. Hopefully it stays that way! I have noticed him itching though. :( Poor baby! It's not ruining his life yet or anything, but if his chest is uncovered, or his genitals or his legs, he just scratches away. I'm hoping it will soon get better rather than worse. Well of course I do, haha. Anyway, not only does he only have to go to Gainesville every three months, but now he only has to go to his pediatrician every month! We were going every two weeks. Finally, things are starting to slow down a bit. Now I just need to get physical therapy to rethink this weekly thing. :)
Blake LOVES solids now. It's so cute! He just gobbles them up. :) Which is cool, since someone told me that AGS kids a lot of times are on a liquid diet until they're ten years old! That's crazy! And he's trying so hard to crawl. He's been getting into the crawling position and rocking. So exciting! He's super mobile though, he's got his combat crawl down so well, and he's into absolutely everything, especially things that he should be, of course! Haha.
So in general things are just going really good. :) Besides the itching thing. It could be worse though. On top of that, things with Ray has been going great. :) I wish I didn't have to work so much, since I miss Blake so much. :( Hopefully that will get better soon too. We'll see. :)
