I honestly don't have the emotional wherewithal at the moment to "go there" with this experience so all I am going to do is copy and paste some Facebook posts from the time. Sigh. So glad this is just a page in his book and we have turned the page. That is all.
|9/18/14: Okay I just had a 4th friend TODAY asking about Sam so I will give the people what they want. So the reasons the doctors were so concerned were because he did the "gowers' sign" (go ahead, google it, and feel free to freak out like we did) and was not meeting any of his 9-month milestones. Last we saw the specialist, the plan was "wait and see," which NO ONE wants to hear from a doctor or do! We w...ere also going to do a brain MRI. A week later, I felt compelled for him to have an upper cervical adjustment by my friend Eric L. McEntire. This idea did not come from myself! With all respect to Dr. Eric and anyone who has ever found relief from chiropractic care (Chloe included), I always thought people who had their babies adjusted were just plain cah-razy!!! But as a mom I have learned to go with my intuition and it has seldom led me astray. So... I did it. The VERY NEXT DAY, Sam was sitting independently and has not done the gowers' sign since. The day after that, he was crawling. A few days after that, he started pulling himself up to stand. So I just spoke with the specialist because she got the news that I cancelled the planned brain MRI. I told her about his progress and she said she agreed...we have a healthy 9-month-old on our hands who gave us a TERRIBLE scare. Now he's still scaring us, but it's because of everything he gets into and how fast he can get into trouble! Thank you, everyone, for your love, concern, and prayers! I'm hoping to stay off the health scare radar, especially when it comes to my kids, for the rest of forever, thankyouverymuch!|
So that happened. The end. Thank goodness.
