There have been a lot of changes around here lately, and even more to think about coming up. First off, Graham's recovery is going extremely well!!! He's been progressing each day and each week a little bit more and we're excited to see how far he goes now that he's not battling his hips! He has even been able to go back to Saddle Up and begin horseback riding therapy again!

Graham has also had a bunch of check ups, with everyone from his pediatrician, and GI doctors, to his ophthalmologist, and dentist! Graham has been a busy kiddo, in fact the poor kid had a week off for spring break, but we were so busy it hardly felt like a break at all! And if we could figure out a way to just banish all of these germs it would awesome! (This being said as I finish my second round of antibiotics in a month for strep throat )
We have managed to squeeze in some fun in between therapy and doctor appointments. Graham got to hang out with Daddy at "Cars & Coffee" this past weekend

And to add to our crazy busy schedule, we decided to start fostering for the Colorado Coonhound Rescue because Ruby has really needed someone to play with, and has proven she can't be an "only" dog lol! So we met Mick!
Now to the changes ahead...
Graham is going to be heading to kindergarten in the fall. Now, who decided he was old enough to go to kindergarten, I don't know, but it sure wasn't me, and I am so not ready for this!!!
To add to this fact is the looming transition meeting I get to have with his new school, teachers, & team, and his current preschool team scheduled for next week.
Right now, it feels like there are two entities. I know where I want Graham to be, I know where I hope he can be, and I'm terrified of the possibility that he won't be able to keep up in a typical type classroom setting. Much less all of the other things that go along with starting elementary school.
For the last two years we've been in this amazing little preschool bubble. The teachers and staff are understanding, accommodating, and they love Graham and love watching him succeed. But, even now, the kids are getting older, they're noticing Graham's differences more, and there are a lot more "why" type questions being asked. That safe and amazing bubble is about to be popped, and I'm not sure what really lies outside of the safety of that bubble. It feels like there's a lot more pressure about to be placed on our shoulders to advocate and push once again for what Graham needs.
I just hope that I'm up to the task...
