Yesterday we had an x-ray and met with Dr. Paley. Carter has gained 47 mm of length! Yes, I could just say almost 2 inches, but using double digits provides a number that is more in accord with the amount of effort exerted, if that makes sense. We started a new med to address the three major concerns as of late: pain, appetite, and sleep. I must admit, prior to the appointment I was convinced that something had gone amiss with the whole process due to Carter's sorrowful disposition. As we all know, Carter and sorrowful just don't belong in the same sentence! Because we can't actually "see" what's going on in there, the appointments with Paley and the x-ray images feel like a life line. The reassurance that all is well is just what we needed to keep going (well, that and the new medication). And last night Carter enjoyed a blissful slumber, which is always an accurate gage of progress, don't you agree?
