Another A+ from the Doctor

Yesterday we went to see Dr. McGlothlin, the neurologist. This was just a check up to see how things were going with Cannon's spina bifida. He was impressed that Cannon was moving his legs and especially his feet. He was a little worried about his right eye and asked me if he had "some big medical term" (I didn't know what he was talking about other than it has a tendency to turn in a little bit). We have noticed it more in pictures. But when he shined the light in them he said he wasn't really sure. So he gave us the name for a pediatric opthamologist. Here is Granmomma and Cannon waiting for Dr. McGlothlin.

Since we were in the neighborhood, we went to visit our favorite nurses in the NICU.
Mom, Lanna, Cannon, & Jessica and baby Ellie.

And Carla, the physical therapist.

Granmomma and Aunt Teri came back home with us. Tonight we set up the swing in the back yard and enjoyed a breezy West Texas evening. Cannon has a new swing too, but we haven't gotten it hung up. Hopefully in the next couple of days. He really enjoyed swinging with us, and finally drifted off for a little nap.

Just did a little blog catch-up on you guys and sweet Cannon. Seriously, he is just PRECIOUS and doing SO GREAT!!!! Hope the eating thing gets better... and I wish I had some tips for ya. But all kids do it differently.

I am so glad I was talking with you this morning when the worry set in. Your voice was just what I needed, so I know it wasn't by accident! I will keep you posted on us... but for now, we're good. Love ya girly!! Give that cutie patootie Cannon a kiss from me!!
