Wow, I can't believe how busy I've been the past couple days! Yesterday and today, I've been busy making various signs for our Buddy Walk on Saturday and making Joey's shirt for the walk. So many last minute things that need to be done! I thought it wouldn't take me long to make the signs, but trying to make the darn things plus take care of Joey and do household things has worn me out!! Luckily, I'm almost done, just one more sign to make tomorrow, not to mention more house cleaning and Joey's physical therapy.

Monday, after Joey's TV debut, I took him for his 6 month check up with his pediatrican. Of corse he got 3 shots and screamed his little head off afterwards. I still cannot watch him get a shot. My eyes tear up if I see the needle go in. I guess I just feel bad. But Dr. B said Joey is doing wonderful! He's up to 14 lbs, 9 oz!! He's turning into a little pig! And he's grown 1 3/8 inch in the past 2 months!!!

Tomorrow Joey's physical therapist is doing his 6 month evaluation and more therapy will be added since he's getting older. I can't give enough praise for his PT, Michelle. She is such a wonderful person and she truely seems to care about Joey.

A week from tomorrow, Patrick and I take Joey for the mold for his helmet to be made. I am not looking forward to this, we have to hold him still for 10 minutes while the plaster hardens. Thank goodness Patrick was able to get the afternoon off to go along with us so I wouldn't have to do it alone.

Good luck on your buddy walk! Can't wait to hear all about it!

It really helps to have a wonderful PT doesn't it? We really loved ours too!
