The past few weeks have been filled with many ups and downs. Alex was recently diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a condition in which there’s a build-up of fluid in the brain. We’ve been in and out of the Children’s Hospital in Zurich for appointments, a MRI, and consultation with the doctors. We’re optimistic about treatment options and feel very fortunate that it was detected early. I will write more in detail about his condition in a separate post.
Other (more happy) updates:
Alex used the potty for the first time on Jan. 14 and has been consistently using it in the mornings when he first wakes up and in the evenings before bath time. I’m sure he’ll love when I show his future girlfriend this picture…
On Jan. 11 I had an interview for a German class that would begin the end of February if I end up in the class, but won’t find out for another week or so. Fingers are crossed that I get in!
Jan. 23 marked two years of us living in Zurich! I’ve been jotting down interesting/funny/surprising facts about Switzerland to share on here and will have that up soon.
More to come very soon!
