All is going well with Mikey

Mike is doing real well.

He still can't sleep well because of the steroids and he gets little hot flashes, partly because he doesn't have a pituitary gland anymore.

He had some blood work done yesterday for our appointment w/the neurosurgeon on Wednesday... they need to start controlling all his hormones with meds now. It is taking a month to get into a good endocrinologist... and we got lucky because of a cancellation!! At first our appointment was going to be in JUNE!

Matthew had the flu for the past 3 days...then Sue got the flu and then finally I got the flu!!! I yi yi.... not so fun for any of us.
Thank goodness Mike hasn't gotten it... it would not be good for him to be throwing up w/ that wound up his nose to his skull.

It sounds like things are going good. I'm so glad. So sorry I haven't been over here to check sooner. Seems like there is never enough time in the day to do everything we want.

Enjoy every second with your sweet hubby and son. Keep us up to date.
