DAY 262

We took Karson up to the U of U again to up his baclofen pump. He is handling this increase in baclofen better than he has any other dose. I believe that he is because he is finally over all his infections. The doctor looked over his medications and then put him on another one to see if it would assist with him being so tight all the time. He is getting used to traveling up to Salt Lake. Karson has a really hard time with any changes in routine. He is getting better. He had the best day with his speech therapist yesterday. He is doing more and more because he is familiar with her now. Dr. Elovic wanted Karson rolled on his belly at everyday so we did it the first time yesterday. While he was rolled over, my sweet friend Allyson, gave him a massage. He loved it. He only could handle about 15 minutes on his stomach before he wanted to be turned back over. Baby steps with Karson and slow progress....but he is improving small amounts every week. All my family wrote him Christmas letters. I read them to him which delighted him so much. Thanks for all the love and comfort you gave to him through your letters. He loved all the sweet memories that you had of him. We continue to have so much support. Our family and Karson are so grateful for all of you.


  1. We are so HAPPY with all the progress. You are doing so good, we can't wait to come and see you again. Surely you will want to start nannying for us the minute you are up and at em'. Ha! :) Yes, baby steps. Slow and steady wins the race, right? Karson, we love you so much and are so thankful for your example of strength. Be strong always and never give up. You can do it! Please know that we continually think about and pray for you! Jace and Shelly King
