It’s been a pretty brutal week, so I fully mean it when I say Thank God It’s Friday!!! I’m looking forward to the weekend, having Nate around, maybe finding a little down time, and laughing at some hopefully good commercials with friends on Sunday. I am sad to admit I am one of those unAmerican folks that really doesn’t care about football, and the Superbowl is the only game I watch the entire year, but I pick a side to keep it interesting, and it’s always fun.
We’ve learned some new things about the kids this week. Gabriel’s struggling with what is referred to as audio and visual discrimination, meaning he’s having trouble discerning one object or one word from another when he is presented with several options. This makes it particularly hard for him to follow directions (forget 2 step directions), and it explains a lot of our issues. I have to think about how we’re going to manage with that, but a picture book to provide a visual aid to directions has been presented as one option.
William officially needs to nurse to move his digestive system at this point. It is SO sluggish on it’s own. The poor kid tries so hard, but nothing moves. At this point, we’re going to try taking him to the chiropractor several times a week. The doctor is able to keep clearing his blockages and use his cold laser to stimulate the system. I’m hoping if we keep away at this, his digestive system will finally kick in and run by itself, kind of like yanking at a rip cord repeatedly till the motor turns over on it’s own.
So here’s to a good weekend, and naps all around for everybody! 🙂 Love to you all.
