Is this the same kid?

So, I was in the middle of making a blog for our business when I thought I would update everyone since it's been awhile. Treston is doing absolutely awesome!!! That boy is running around and doing everything a "normal" 21 month old boy should be doing! He even went on the potty this morning :-)
Right before our newest baby, Tyana was born in May, Treston's physical therapists thought it was ok to take a break from PT. Well, she is 3 1/2 months old now and he hasn't needed to go back! They were thinking about a 6 week break, but our God is bigger than that! He still gets speech therapy twice a week, but I have faith that that is nearing it's end as well since he's doing so well speaking also!
He has had his regular follow ups with his neurologist and cardiologist and they are just so impressed with his progress! He had an appointment with an ENT last week and he didn't really want to do the hearing screening. The stuffed animals lighting up in the boxes in the sound room really freaked him out! He kept trying to get down off my lap and saying, "done, done!" Poor guy, those things kind of remind me of the monkey with cymbals in that one horror movie, what's it called again? Well, the ENT said since he doesn't see enough movement in his eardrum he recommends getting tubes put in. I told him I wasn't going to put him under anesthesia and put him through surgery right now since he isn't getting ear infections at all and his speech is coming along great! He said that's fine for now and wants to see him back in 6 months.
I titled this entry "Is this the same kid?" because when he first started seeing therapists, they told me they didn't even know whether he would ever sit up or crawl. My boy is running around like any boy his age. He was climbing up a metal fence the other day all the way to the top! He grew out of his ankle braces and although he still needs them, they are shorter ones now. He goes to storytime at the library and the woman who does the storytime told Jon yesterday that he just looks so much better than he did a while ago. Who knew she was even watching him?! Our God is an AMAZING GOD! He gives mercy all day everyday. I hope and pray that no matter what happens that Treston learns that much. I pray he learns that no matter what happens to him that God is merciful and gracious and he DOES supply ALL our needs. God is the only one who knows what is best for us. If we try to give our children what is best for them, how much more does our Father in Heaven give us what's best for us?
