Now that things are finally looking good on the liver front we are starting to focus our attention onto some of Eden's other issues. Namely eating and talking. Thankfully her physical development has not been an issue. Suffice it to say she gets around, but she does seem to have some oral issues. We have been working with our local early intervention program on the feeding issues and have recently added some out patient therapy to our schedule. It may take some time but she'll get it. As far as speaking goes, this kid can make noise and occasionally I'll hear something that sounds like a word but that's as far as it goes. Yesterday we met with a speech therapist for an evaluation, and will be starting some monthly speech therapy. At her first visit we will also do a hearing test to make sure Eden hasn't had any hearing damage as a result of some of the toxic drugs she's been on. I have a love hate relationship with these drugs. They work wonders, but can have some nasty side effects.
Though we still some stuff to work on all in all things are looking good.
