This Week

Mira has been doing great this week. She was cranky during PT/OT, but did well. She is finally getting a lot of the phlegm out of her system and has turned a corner with her sleeping. Her sleep patterns are much, much better when she is feeling well. She slept through the night last night for the first time in weeks!

We are crossing our fingers that we don't get rained out for hippotherapy tomorrow, but we have been getting rain off and on today and more is forecast for tomorrow.

We moved forward with the aCGH (genetic micro-array) testing on Monday. Children's Mercy is sending it through a private genetic company for testing, so as it was with the other genetic screens, it will be back in about 6-8 weeks.

I had the pleasure of sitting through a 4 hour city planning commission meeting last night, for yet another cell tower proposal. Cingular threatened back in 2005 to put a cell tower about 50 feet from our house, in the middle of a park no less. After an exhausting fight, they were denied a special use permit and eventually the issue went away in 2006. Now, T-Mobile wants to put a massive 120' monopole about three blocks from us, which we could still see from our back yard. Again, the application was denied. Fortunately, we have really proactive neighbors (some of which are attorneys, conveniently) who are always willing to fight such proposals.
