Xavier had a good appointment with his ophthalmologist this week and it was good news; No need to wear glasses for now! We go back in 5 months for a follow up. He may still need glasses later. Everything else is going really well. He’s under weight but eating pretty well. He starts preschool on Wednesday where he’ll get some special attention on speech, but he is speaking fairly well so we aren’t too worried. They will also work on his fine and gross motor skills, but those are minor delays. Considering everything, he is doing extremely well. We’re feeling very blessed to be where we are now. Every now and then I remember vividly standing in the ER at Primary Children’s Hospital when Xavier stopped breathing in my arms and the chaos that ensued as we were pushed out of the little room and doctors and nurses were frantically scrambling to save his life. It still brings me to tears thinking about how close we came to losing him. We’ve been so very blessed and I believe in miracles. He’s a special little guy who has already touched many people. He’s got an amazing life ahead. God has big plans for him.
