Gavin's appointment went fairly well yesterday. He received 6 injections of Botox. He got 4 shots in his calf muscles and 2 in his inner thigh muscles. Gavin usually does fairly well with his immunizations, but this is probably because I insist on holding him when he gets them and 2 nurses do them at the same time, so it doesn't take very long. Yesterday he had to lay on his belly on the table for the injections and the doctor did one at a time, so it took a bit longer than a normal shot session does.
Gavin was NOT happy about this! He was literally sobbing and it broke my heart! As soon as I picked him up, he settled down nicely, but he has decided that Botox is NOT FUN!
We won't know if the Botox has made a difference for about 7-10 days. This is when it's effects peak. I hope that we notice a difference, but only time will tell.
On a brighter note, I put rope lights around Gavin's crib and he LOVES them!
Here are some pictures of him with them, with the room lights on:

Pretty cool, Right?!?!.....That's for you Amy! :)
