Well, we're closing in on Masinja's first birthday. We measured him this week, and he's about 28.5 in long! He's been growing like a weed lately, so he will definitely be caught up to all the other kids his age.
We're planning Masinja's birthday party for 21 January. Our church is booked for the 20th, and a few key attendees have to work that Sunday, so we'll celebrate with cake and friends the day after.
Masinja went to the doc this week. He has contact dermatitis on his chest, and the poor guy is just itching away. He also had the start of an ear infection, so the doc prescribed him some antibiotics and some hydracortisone cream. The rash is starting to come around, but I've experienced the contact dermatitis, and I hurt just watching him itch.
We also got his phenobarb levels, and they're fine. We're looking at the possibility of weening him off it as he hasn't had any seizures since Aug 07. He's scheduled for a CAT scan and follow-up with the neurosurgeon, so we'll have more info later.
Last, but not least, Masinja went to the eye doctor this week. He's been prescribed corrective lenses, and T.M.M. and I have been prescribed fear, because we have no idea how we're going to keep glasses on a little boy who is as active as Masinja is.
That's all for now.
