Yesterday, Stephen had surgery on his right wrist again. We had to leave our house just after five in the morning which was challenging but I was thankful that it meant that he wouldn’t have to be fasting for as long this time. Everything went well. He was the first patient of the day, I … Continue reading Carpal Tunnel Surgery and Speech Therapy Over the Phone
I picked up a mint chevron rug when I was shopping this morning. It’s going to be for the little girls and me, when we’re doing special activities together (more than likely speech therapy and music).

I took Samuel back to the library yesterday and there were only a few kids there but he still had fun. We built a neat structure together with magnetic tiles.

Also, today Samuel ate apple slices with … Continue reading Therapy Swing & A New Prescription
Joshua’s appointment went well yesterday morning. After talking to the doctor about everything, she had me fill out something called the Vanderbilt questionnaire which helps in diagnosing ADHD. And just like the questions I found online myself, EVERYTHING matched him. Well, that’s not true. There were a number of questions that related to being violent, … Continue reading An ADHD Diagnosis and Autism Wait Lists
