Wordful/Wordless Wednesday-We Survived Botox

Posted May 06 2009 1:33pm
Turn It Daddy

Joe was so much help. Cole loves to be read to and Joe kept him happily entertained reading The Lion King. (notice the clenched fist grabbing Joe's hand)

Love This Book!

Cole says, "...and the lion says 'ROAR!'"

Funny Face

Smile for the camera! He's already making silly faces before getting the versed.

That's so Funny!

And...with the versed it is even funnier when Daddy reads Finding Nemo.

Cole received 3-4 injections of the Botox in each arm. We were so proud of him because he did not shed even one tear. As a matter of fact, he didn't fuss at all.

Ta-Da, I Did It!

"Ta-Da! I did it!"

I have to say, I don't think that Botox is the 'miracle cure' for Cole but it has obviously made a difference already.

Now I just hope for the next few months, while Cole's muscle's are relaxed, his therapists can use this opportunity to 're-train' his brain to tell his muscles how to react without also fighting the spacticity.

Thank you to everyone for all your kind words and your support! I am glad we made the decision to move forward with getting the injections. I will post more as we see progress.
