Somethings Up With Gavin

Something is going on with Gavin. He’s really off today and that’s saying something. Today was the first day of summer break. All I can say is 1 down 103 to go. I’ll be honest I’m not looking forward to this summer. We are getting Gavin in to see the doc’s again because he is really starting to worry us. My first thought would be over medication but he’s not over medicated. He is however still regressing. He brushes his teeth and you’d think he’d been finger painting with the tooth paste not brushing his teeth. He can’t find things. He’d look for his backpack (which is on the couch where he put it) and can’t find it. He will even pick “IT” up and look underneath it.

His problem solving skills are slipping away as well. This is the longest he has regressed. The doc’s have told us there is nothing we can do. He is just going through these things. They are correct we can’t stop these phases any more then we could stop the other kids from walking or crawling. We weren’t worried because he goes through these phases and they just work themselves out and when the dust settles we’re pretty close to where we left off. This time does seem different though.

Looks like it’s back to the drawing board with this one.

Thank you for sharing our lives. LT

  1. As his parent with a gut feeling I would take him in just to get checked. I know you have said there Is nothing that can be done but you are clearly worried and from reading your post I think even a trip to the doctors for some reassurance is a good idea. I hope things pick up for Gavin and you can get the best from your summer. We are mostly dealing with the issue of school and obsessions right now. As always school is not working and we are appealing for a statement of special educational needs which I think is an IEP in the states ( Always a fight ) And his obsession with buses is extremely over powering at present. I don't mind his "Special Interest" But Its at an all time high right now. His even using it as a comfort and coping macarnisim.

    By the way, The blog seems to be coming along well. I'm Really enjoying following your inspirational story. Enjoy your weekend.

    1. First off, Thank You.

      He has an appointment with the peds neuro in July. That's the soonest they could get him in. In the mean time we have to rule out any immediate life threats and wait it out. Thanks Again and good luck with all you have going on. We will keep you in our thoughts.
