Appointment Canceled

Last Thursday Nicholas had his second Modified Barium Swallow test. Essentially he sits in a chair with all sorts of X-Ray equipment pointed at him and a speech pathologist watches him eat barium of all sorts of consistencies. Bottom line: he's grown out of the difficulties he had last July when we had this done the first time. The real bottom line: Thursday afternoon mom started calling specialists and cancelling follow-up appointments and specialist appointments and this appointment and that appointment. We're going to let the boy grow-up a bit for now and maybe spend the money we save on ice cream.
Nicholas is going to have to toughen up a bit anyway. His uncle is running his last "timed" marathon--the Boston Marathon--this morning in the wind and rain and cold weather, brrr. We think he expects that Nicholas will pick up the torch as he goes into retirement....
