School makes big move

Conductive Education Center of Orlando

The staff at the Conductive Education Center of Orlando had some big plans for the Memorial Day holiday weekend. They moved into a new facility. For many years, J.P. has spent time at CECO. It’s a wonderful place for children with motor disabilities that… Continue Reading “School makes big move”

Shaking off the cobwebs

Snoozing dog

I was thankful J.P. got a good night’s sleep. It was nice to wake up feeling refreshed Thursday, and I’ve noticed that since J.P. has been home from the hospital, Karina doesn’t whine in her crate before I’m ready to wake up. However, I… Continue Reading “Shaking off the cobwebs”

Diaper trouble prompts change in plans

Karina in hospitl bed

Believe it or not, J.P. was back at the hospital Wednesday after going 20 hours without a wet diaper. I’ve learned from my many hospital stays that you can tell nurses about many issues with a child, but nothing seems to be taken as… Continue Reading “Diaper trouble prompts change in plans”

Things are busy in the Cousins’ household in the morning. If J.P. had a good night, he usually will sleep until well after the sun comes up, but upon awakening, things get a bit hectic. We still keep a log of his diapers just… Continue Reading “Mornings with J.P.”

Making the hospital hospitable

Chopper J.P. and Dad

I shared a bit earlier about how all the time we’ve spent in the hospital over the past 11 years turned into almost a second job for me. Florida Hospital for Children is practically a second home, and there are plenty of employees there… Continue Reading “Making the hospital hospitable”

The daily balancing act

J.P. and Jorge Somoza

I admit it. I don’t spend as much one-on-one time with J.P. as my wife, Paige, does. I work the night shift at Hearst Television in Orlando and manage the websites of dozens of stations when they’re not locally staffed. That means Paige is… Continue Reading “The daily balancing act”
