I took some drastic measures with regards to my weight loss. I hired a personal trainer. She's given me a diet to follow and I have a workout regimen. I just finished my first week, and what do you know? I'm down 4 pounds!! That's right, I'm at 270 pounds. I'm feeling really good about that, and I'm working out 6 days a week. I go to the gym Mon-Sat at 5AM and do cardio for 30 minutes. Two nights a week I meet with the trainer and do weight lifting, which totally kicked my butt last week! Then 2 days a week on top of my cardio I am going to water aerobics. I feel really great about myself and how things are going.
Christopher's speech therapy has been going well, he now signs "gimme" or "please" depending on who teaches you the signs. We're still trying to get some different sounds in, but it is slow going. We are unsure how much he is hearing, and after meeting with the ENT, there is some concern. His right ear lost the tube before his follow-up visit after the surgery, and they aren't sure if the left tube is still where it should be. All of this means that he has to have a sedated auditory test. I'm pretty nervous about this, but we don't have a date yet, I will update when I can.
I'd say that's enough of an update for this post...well, you know, it's long enough already anyway. ;-)
