Yes, as usual it has been far too long since our last post! So much has happened and it’s all wonderful! The most recent news is that we have been traveling with Lukas to Los Angeles the last few months to try a new kind of therapy: Cuevas Medek Eercise (CME). We heard about this […]

Well, we officially took our first trip with the little bear.  In September, we went to Baltimore so that we could take Lukas to Kennedy Krieger Institute, where we were able to meet with specialists in many fields to get as much information as possible about how we can help Lukas.  While we were there, […]

I know, it’s been far too long since our last update!  We spend so little time at home these days, that it’s been hard to find time to post.  Lukas has been having a tough time lately.  For about the past week, he’s often seemed quite uncomfortable when taking his bottle, arching his back and […]

So, it looks like Lukas may be able to come home next week!  He had his hearing test today and his car seat test yesterday, both of which went very well.  His nurse did the car seat test, however, and it turns out that it has to be done by a therapist, so we’ll have […]
