Home sweet home

Whew, long travel home. Our flight out of New Delhi was delayed by 5 hours (fog. dense, impenetrable fog.) and so we missed our connection. We ended up overnighting in Munich, where Lufthansa put us up in a nice hotel and paid for our dinner of spaetzle. Cash slept the whole 9 hours Delhi to Munich, but he (and I) were awake pretty much the entire 8 1/2 hour flight the next day from Munich to Newark. Happily, he is a super traveler - he sits quietly and plays with his toys.

Now we are home. Cash went to school today. He is really doing well. I know I was having a spasm of doubt about the stem cells before we went to India, based partly on the CNN interviews, but it is hard not to feel good about them again based on what I am seeing now. It's all small stuff, but it adds up. A bunch of new signs (he said "blue" for his dad on skype), signing "poo" when his diaper is dirty, the temper tantrums, using his iPad to make requests. Plus he seems stronger - his walking is more stable and his hands seem both stronger and better at fine movements. And ... this is hard to explain, but he seems more THERE. I guess by that I mean that he seems increasingly responsive and interactive. It is hard to explain. Anyway, he is good, and we are glad to be home.

Aunt Dianne bought Cash a new Blue Music for Christmas. His old one died a few months ago and we could not find a replacement. He was thrilled to see it, totally thrilled. He danced to the music, and he "sang" with signs :-)
