Wow! What an exciting morning! Andrew woke up this morning and has continued to babble "dadadadad-duh-duh-duh." I know it may seem silly to some other people but this was so awesome for us. Felt and I imitated him over and over again and watched with excitement. We sat with him in bed and played with him. His attention and eye contact were even better this morning. We called his name and he would turn his face to us. It was really neat to see this and it really brings more hope and faith to us. God has blessed us today! I'm not sure if it is the diet starting to work or the supplements including the probiotics. On days like this you feel like you have to take advantage of every moment and cancel all plans to attend church( bad, bad, bad), wash clothes, grocery shop, etc. Please pray that this spurt of language and communication will continue for Andrew. Thank you God for blessing us today!
We are a family of five living in San Antonio, TX. Our son Andrew was diagnosed at 20 months with Autism. We knew that something was still not right about his diagnosis. After many doctors appointments with specialists and geneticists he received a diagnosis of Rett Sydnrome in November 2008. He continues to struggle daily with communication, swallowing, using his hands and with breathing. We really feel blessed with every day we are given and we are learning to love and live with life's many challenges.
