Alex continues to thrive at home! We have not had any vomiting or even a need to use nausea medication since Tuesday! We are just enjoying nice family time.

Bruce is still job hunting and hoping to get something soon. He had a positive interview this week so we are hoping good news is just around the corner.

I also wanted to let everyone know something I have been keeping to myself. Most likely Alex will not be going to school in the fall. Dr. Koenig and Dr. Pacheco have always encouraged me to help Alex live as normal a life as possible. Dr. Koenig and I have spoken about the accomodatio​ns needed fro Alex to attend public school. So I thought everyone would share my joy when we registered Alex for Kindergarte​n. However, Dr. pacheco feels VERY strongly that Alex not go to school this year. She feels like it could be very detrimental to his health. I tried to convince them otherwise, but they are pretty set that this is the right choice. They feel like since Alex spent the better part of 9 months in the hospital after minimal exposure to illness, his body cannot handle the strain it would be placed under by going to school. They feel like one year home is better then causing him to become extremely sick and regress. We will revisit the school situation before first grade. I have had time to process this and am okay with it. Alex and I are excited to begin a homeschool curriculum based entirely on animals. He actually wants to start school now!

Thanks for continuing to check on us.
