The large gaps in posting on this blog illustrate beautifully the fact
that despite Infant Botulism putting our life on hold for a period of time,
life does indeed go on.
Baby T (now best known as Big boy T) is now 2 years and a few months
post-diagnosis and treatment.
He is fabulous.
He's tenacious, vivacious and bursting with energy.
Most parents I discuss IB with are concerned about future health problems which may result from their child having once recovered from IB.
So far we've encountered no issues (knock on wood).
We became captured by this little-big guy long before
Infant Botulism made him one in a million.
I often hear from families who are grateful to see how well Baby T is doing.
Big boy T is here to show you that he is absolutely fine.
And your baby will be too.
I am truly thankful for having the opportunity to share many botulism recovery stories so that other families can have a rough idea of what to expect.
Expect many extremes..sadness, joy, defeat and triumph.
And be grateful for a full recovery.
Because recover they do.
