Karson had two appointments yesterday. One with his neurologist that changed his medications to work better for him and added a new one that is supposed to work wonders. He was very alert yesterday for the neurologist and did everything he asked him to do. Then we went over to the Physical Therapist doctor and he got him an appointment to get a baclofen pump trial. This will help Karson so that he isn't so stiff in his muscles. If the trial works, then they will permanently implant it in his back. He will be getting more botox in a month in his shoulders and arms to make the joints relax. If all this doesn't work to relax the muscles, then they go in surgically and strip the joint so it isn't stuck. This is all quite a process and he is going to get there. We have our appointment with the U of U doctor on Wednesday to see whatever we have to do to get him in the rehab there. Hopefully, we can get him up there as soon as possible. They won't take him until they feel like he can handle the aggressive physical therapy that they do. I am anxious to get him there and Karson is really ready to go. Thanks for the comments you send to Karson. Now I know that he truly hears them and loves them because he can tell me so. Thanks for all the support.
