Today we finished all of EJ’s paperwork. He is now qualified as MRDD. I wasn’t expecting that today. That really kinda kicks you right in the gut to hear that. On the positive side that does give us FSS funding to make the house safer and provide for the sensory needs.
Each step we take that gets us closer to the final diagnosis just makes everything all that more real. It’s one thing to know something but it’s another thing to “KNOW” something. If that makes any sense. I don’t think there is any way to actually prepare for the moment of truth that is around the corner. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone.
If you are a parent of typical kids don’t ever take that for granted it can be taken away when you least expect it even if you do everything right.
