Starting a journal

Today as I was going through hundreds of hits on Google about my sons conditions, I found a link to a LiveJournal account.  I started reading her journal, and once I got past the feeling like I was intruding into a strangers personal life, I finally felt like there was at least one person in the world that knew exactly what I was going through. I spent a lot of today reading, understanding, and empathizing. I must admit, I also shed a few tears for this stranger's child.
O.K. so enough with this justification of starting this. I've decided that it is important to keep track of Ethan's medical stuff and this is a great way to do it, along with getting out my frustrations and feeling like I actually get to talk, even if I'm just talking to myself.

I want to catch up with Ethan's medical history:

When he was born on Oct. 15th, 2006 we noticed what looked like a bruise on his lower right leg. They told us to keep an eye on it to watch for growth, which it did.
