I fear Akron is in the near future….

Gavin has been really struggling lately/ Today he corrected for taking over the Wii while Elliott was playing a game. I told Gavin he was done playing for now because it wasn’t his turn…. Next thing I know he had taken it again.. I told him he was now done for the rest of the day. He completely melted down and because of his reaction he was given oatmeal in place of lunch. His meltdown went on for about 30 minutes before he decided to stop. He is part of what we are seeing.  The most frustrating part is that he is choosing to do this. Sure he is more prone to outbursts but this is a choice.

I am, however, concerned that the medications are so out of whack and his behavior is so out of control that we will have little choice but to send him back to Akron to get stabilized…This couldn’t happen at a worse time as everything with Emmett is still up in the air and Lizze is still getting worse…

Hi again. I have left you a few other comments on other posts, and was just wondering if you read any of them. I have asked a couple times if you've had Gavin tested for Fragile X Syndrome. I have read about it, and had been researching it to see if it was a possible issue with my step-son, and it made me think of you and Gavin.
Hope things improve for you guys soon. Take care.


Hey. Thanks for the concern. Yes Gavin has been tested and does not have fragile x. We really though it would come back positive. We were surprised. Thanks again… 🙂


Well, at least it was ruled out.
I am amazed by the amount of patience you two must have to be able to continue caring for a child like Gavin. I honestly think I would have lost my mind by now.
Keep up the good work! And thanks for replying. 🙂
