Everything in its Right Place

A blog about disability, life, parenting, and learning what it means to live well in this world.

Just wanted to say that we are officially on the mend from dose number four: six days in and Adam's numbers are starting to go the right way again. This one has been the hardest, with his mouth and the skin on his bottom the hardest hit. We rapidly assembled a host of salt water, bicarb, gels, foam spray, creams, lotions and special pain relief of the opiate variety to treat Adam's pain, and it seems to have helped him get through. Not much hope that dose number 5 won't send him over the edge again, but at least we are prepared and at least that's the last one.

Now let me brag for a minute: the doctor today said once again that they are impressed with how well Adam has been doing, and with how much he's taken during this course. Adam has been able to tolerate more doses so far than many children do, even those without Down Syndrome.

So there: if you're going to have an extra chromosome, you might as well have it made from steel.
