Roa had his first round of Botox this morning at Gillette. He handled it all like a champ. Mom was the most worked up about it! But we all made it through!
Roa couldn't have anything to eat since 5:30am and didn't get the Botox treatment until 11:00, so he was tired and hungry, but overall was in good spirits. They sedated him with nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and injected his thumbs, adductors, and hamstrings with botox. He remained just sleepy and calm through the procedure. After they gave him oxygen to bring him out of his sleepy state, he started to cry. I then could feed him and he was a hungry little monster!
The doctor told us to watch for any reactions- flu like symptoms, redness, poor muscle control. He said the some of the affects of the botox will be seen in 1-3 days and the full affect on the muscle in 1-3 weeks. Roa may get more "wobbly" and might not be able to walk around with us like he is used to. We will wait and see how he handles the muscular changes!
