I know I have been bad about writing, but there is much ado lately:

  • My daughter developed a large café-au-lait mark (looks like a large birthmark) which can be a sign of Neurofibromatosis if more develop. Fortunately I have one, my wife has one, and the pediatrician has two and all without problems. Just something to keep an eye on.
  • My son has a heart murmur, though the diagnosis has not been done as to the type. Smith life speculation is that it is a mitral valve prolapse. We’ll find out on Thursday at the pediatric cardiologist
  • Then my son has a supracondylar fracture (elbow) which will require surgery to place pins. Upcoming Monday.
  • MS has worsened and leg weakness continues. Will work on scheduling some Solu-Medrol next week after my son is cleaned up.
  • etc.

At least I haven’t been up to nothing! 😉
