Growing up as a child, special days like Halloween are something we each look forward to. As parents now, these special days are so much more. We had so much fun dressing Mason up as a little tiger. It was difficult choosing a costume as he would have looked cute in anything! Mason surely enjoyed his first Halloween! He even kept his whole costume on the entire night! We were hesitant to take him trick or treating as he is so little and cannot eat candy. The great idea hit that we should use this opportunity to raise awareness in the community for LS while taking Mason door to door. We have made postcards that give a brief description of Mason’s story and LS as well as his blog and the LSA website. It’s really great talking with others in our community and having them meet Mason. It certainly helps that he was the cutest tiger around 🙂 We are thinking of printing off a bunch of cards and having an awareness day around the valley, hoping our family and friends will partake. We are quite motivated to raise awareness in hopes to one day find a cure for this awful disorder. None the less, Mason was an angel as usual!
We met with Endocrinology last week because Mason’s pediatrician was concerned his hormone levels might be imbalanced. We are happy to report that his blood work came back normal and Mason gained a pound in 6 days! We really liked his Endocrinologist! It’s always great meeting with doctors who have something good to report! We will see Nephrology on Wednesday for Mason’s follow up. Praying for a similarly positive report!
