It has been a few days since I have been on here. Lizze is still recovering surgery. She is actually having a pretty rough time right now. She is in a tremendous amount of pain. The fact she has fybro. complicates things alot. You can think of it like this, her body interprets EVERYTHING as pain on a normal day. So the pain from surgery is exponentioally greater. She is having in there as usual. She is a strongest person I have ever met.
Gavin is Gavin. I met with the teachers and principle again the other day to discuss our concerns. I actually walked away feeling better about the situation instead of wanting to beat my head into the wall. The teachers are catching on and responding well to the situation. The problem is that we haven’t seen a change in Gavin’s behaviors yet. It will take some time for Gavin to catch on that he can’t manipulate us.
Lately he has been trying extra hard to manipulate Lizze and I. Aside from that he seems to be doing ok. We haven’t had any violent outbursts since my last post.
Emmett John s doing good. We are just waiting for the next hearing test…
Elliott Richard is also doing well. We are still waiting for a spot to open up for preschool. He really wants to go fishing this spring. As soon as it warms up a bit we will probably go. We also decided to replace his DSi with a Leap Frog Leapster 2. He wasn’t happy at first but he really enjoys it now. He was getting to frustrated with the DSi.
Finally I caved in and had my back looked at. I just couldn’t deal with the pain anymore. For those that don’t know blow out my back while on a call as a firefighter/paramedic. That was 10 years ago and I need to have surgery to fix it but haven’t for many reasons. Anyways, I went and got a medrol dose pack from the doctors. That is a 7 day cycle of (legal)steroids to reduce inflammation. The timing is bad right now because Lizze is down. I have to really take it easy when I am on this med so it can work without me aggravating it again. It was working but not so much anymore because I am doing to much. I can only do this once a year or so..
But right now I am better then I was a week ago so that’s something.
