Now and Then

J was born with a calm, happy disposition. Now we find ourselves calling him "J the Jerk", under our breath of course.  His doctor's and therapist at National Jewish recorded that he has psychosocial problems that are a result of his disease.
We were busy dealing with his health so we chose to put off everything else. So now we are seeing all of these awful behaviors coming out in peer play situations. It is so difficult to know what to do. We decided that we need to put him back in feeding therapy and psychotherapy. I am writing this entry to advise other parents in this situation to keep your child in ongoing therapies. I am sure that taking care of the problem when it is not a huge PROBLEM is probably the better way to go about it. 
I am happy to say that we have come a long way... and it is not too late to pick up where he left off.
These first few photos were taken in November, before J had any medical help for F.P.I.E.S. 
The last 2 photos are J after only 3 months on his new diet.
