I think someone dumped Kool Aid in our water supply. The kids have been acting like they’re all hopped up on sugar and red food dye. They were actually flipping furniture yesterday. At one point, I think I actually had to wrestle them into shoes and coats and drag them one by one down the stairs and strap their thrashing butts into car seats so we could make doctor and therapy appointments. Fun times.
So the news from one doctor was that William’s liver is running pretty sluggishly. Now we have to figure out how to get that up and running correctly, but hopefully that will correct a lot of his digestion problems.
We went back to our RDI consultant last night and basically yawned and stared our way through the meeting, but I think we’re making some progress. Unfortunately Michael’s ADHD is becoming an obstacle in dealing with the autism. We’re trying to figure out new techniques to work with him and temporarily slow his brain down, but that’s not going to happen until we’ve had a nap or two. She gave us the talk about having to figure out how we’re going to take care of us right now. I don’t think Nate and I can have that talk either until we’ve had a nap or two. I’ve been sensing a pattern. 🙂
With this winter storm hitting, I’ve decided to just bunk up for the next few days. We’re taking a break from school stuff and I’m gonna keep the chores to a minimum. If Nate’s office closes, I’m going to see if we can fit a few naps in there. I’d like it if we weren’t both delirious for Valentine’s Day. Rest shall be the name of the game.
Hope you all have a fun long weekend!
