Wow. I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off these days. Just realized how long it has been since I had time to blog. Not that I even have time right now...
What's up around here? Well, the most exciting news is we are taking the boys to Disneyworld next week. So I have been planning and getting ready for that. Let me tell you, either there is way too much to do there, or I over plan way too much. Suffice it to say I have been very very busy with that. Excited, but very busy.
Also been trying and trying to get Matthew's latest AFO to fit properly. Any of you with kids in an AFO know what I mean. You take your kid out of school for an appointment, the AFO gets adjusted, he wears it a day or two and says it bothers him elsewhere. So you make another appointment, take him out of school, get the AFO adjusted...etc. Sort of like Groundhog Day. Still stuck, still trying...
Also have our next appointment for St. Louis. We are heading back in December.
Been dealing with a not so fun problem with Ryan. I think he actually has a medical problem called Encopresis. Things have been getting worse lately so I am trying to get him in to see a specialist. Our GP was not forthcoming with the referral so after some research, I am going back in and getting the referral I want. This kid has had pooping problems since the beginning including 18 months of diarrhea (yes, you read that right 18 long long months). We need to see this doctor.
And Craig leaves tomorrow for a hunting trip. So, that means I get to pack up everything for the boys and myself for the vacation as well as get them to Disney by myself, Craig will meet us there 24 hours later.
Along with regular life and volunteering in the school twice a week has pushed me beyond my limits and time constraints. And as I say that, I have to run and get the boys from school, take them to their hair appointments and then run home to make dinner.
Hope to have some good news about Ryan soon, at least good news in that I will be taking him in to see a doctor that specializes in this condition.
