X-ray down…..waiting..

image

Wells just got back from X-ray. I try to take pics when I’m allowed or able to. It helps Gavin to become fimiliar with the process and Elliott to be less affraid of Gavin going of to the hospital. Elliott worries a lot when he knows Gavin’s in the hospital. I can show him the random pictures and he sees Gavin’s OK and feel better. Just a little trick I learned over the past 6 hospital stays…
I blog about it cause it keeps me distracted just enough to stay “centered” and focused…. Also it just helps to show more about what families like mine have to go through in order to care for our special needs kids……

  1. Rob, you are such a great father. I appreciate all you share with the world about your family's struggles. I have a 6 year old son w/ Aspergers..and while it can be very trying to be raising him alone (along with his 4 year old sister), I cannot imagine the strain you and Lizzie are going through. Also, the comments on your post a few days ago made me really sad…how you were judged for taking video/photos of Gavin. 🙁 I certainly hope you don't feel like you have to justify why you do this everytime you include a post with pics…those of us who get it completely understand and appreciate your willingness to let us into your lives. Hang in there! You guys are in my thoughts and I hope Gavin gets back on track soon.

    1. Thank you. I think some people see it as exploitative..maybe. But that's just not the case. It's meant to educate and also as a means of reaching out for help. Maybe someone sees something in the videos for example and could point us in a direction we haven't been yet.

      Either way I appreciate your support… Thank you and hang in there as well…… 😉
