Lots Going On...




I have a ton of things to write about and no time to do it, unfortunately. So here is a brief update, to be followed by more in depth posts later. (As if you are on the edge of your seat waiting to hear about my life :).

Seattle was awesome. The picture above is the only one we have of both of us there. I'll post details later.

While we were there, I got a call on my cell phone from the Meyer Center to make an appointment for Daniel. This is the place that we sent in the paperwork to get an appointment A YEAR AGO. We knew it would probably take this long, so as most of you know, we went to a different place that doesn't take insurance to get a diagnosis. It is about time to get him reassessed, though, and this place would just be a co-pay so we made the appointment. And of course, his issues are so complex, the more doctors that see him, the better.

Anyway, he still has mild to moderate autism (no surprise there), but while we there he had a seizure. Of course, I didn't realize it was a seizure until the doctor told me because it was the kind where you blank out...not with convulsions. I thought he was just doing a no eye contact, shut down, autism thing when he had done it before. And he has had an EEG before that was normal. But it was a very short EEG, and if he didn't have a seizure during that time, then it comes up normal. So now we are going to have to do the 24 hour EEG....how that works for a 2 year old I have yet to find out, but I am getting a call tomorrow to schedule it, so I should know more then.

Some other things happened with the Meyer Center, one of which is an amazing story of a miracle, in my opinion. But all of that will have to wait. I am in charge of toddlers for VBS at my church this week...you would think that such a small percentage of the population at VBS wouldn't be that much work. But organizing and directing the 3 classes of 2-3 year olds is kicking my butt. Note to self: Never, ever agree to be the actual DIRECTOR of all of VBS. (I love you Catie Brow!! You are amazing!!)
