We spent Grayden's birthday at The University of Michigan at the Spina Bifida clinic. (I know, mom of the year for scheduling appointments on your kids bday). I had been contemplating switching Gray's specialist to the U of M in hopes that they may be a little more progressive in their treatments and in their way of thinking. I was completely impressed with everyone we met and overall it was a great experience. Lucky for us, the Urologist that we will be seeing, travels to Kalamazoo once a month so we will be able to see him there. I definitely walked away feeling more understood and on the same page with the specialists we met there, so I am feeling very confident about our decision to switch.
Our family all chipped in and we bought Grayden a recumbent tag along bike for his birthday! It is awesome and I would highly recommend it. This will allow him to be a more active participant in family bike rides! We also were fortunate to get to buy one of our neighbors swing sets (considering we told Zander we would get him one for his birthday back in March). The boys have been having a blast playing on it together!
In other news, I have been running for the last eight weeks and will be running my first 5k since 8th grade this upcoming Saturday! I am excited and nervous all at the same time!
Don't forget The annual Stroll n' Roll is less than a month away. We would very much appreciate any support you would like to offer. We would love to have you join us as we walk with Grayden's Gang and continue to Redefine SB, or if you can't join us, any donation would also be very much appreciated.
