Mrs. Mayer & Luke
When I talked to Luke's current teacher about his progress recently she said she thinks he's ready for kindergarten. They've worked really hard with him but she said that he's ready for this next step. I feel like he is...but I'm still so nervous. But I guess I'm pretty nervous before each big step....every parent is! Luke has grown a lot with his teachers the past two years. We've also had a lot of hand holding by his nurse, Nurse Leah. She only works with the early childhood kids so we are moving on to new teachers, new therapists, new nurse....EEEK.
Exciting stuff...Luke is learning to write his name!!! He's been doing pretty good with hand over hand assistance but the other day he just picked up a marker and did this independently. It's so fun to see such great progress!

His seizures have been pretty under control (as usual...knock on wood, please!). We had a little hiccup a few months ago when a few came completely out of the blue. Otherwise it's been pretty under control. We've gone over a year since his last big status seizure. I hope we can make it a LOT longer than that....maybe forever! That's not too much to ask, right! We are continuing to work with his epilepsy doctor to decrease one of his medications and get him down to two and hopefully eventually to one. As we decrease this medicine we can see him changing - becoming chattier and sillier and more outgoing. I'm really hoping that we can safely have him down to two by the time he goes into kindergarten.
