Another day another meltdown

It’s no secret that this week has been crazy.  Unfortunately,  at least for me,  it’s only going to get crazier because I’ll have Elliott and Emmett for the next 3 days.  Lizze and Gavin will be at Akron Children’s Hospital for Gavin’s 72 hour VEEG, swallow test and tremor work up.

I’ll be at home chasing 2 little boys with #Autism that don’t seem to get along right now. 

Lizze will be with Gavin because it’s easier for her than staying at home with the other 2 boys.

I mentioned yesterday that I screwed my knee up pretty bad while at the Cleveland Clinic.  I just stepped funny and bam..instant pain.

Anyway,  Gavin is not having a good day. He’s had several smaller meltdowns already and he’s simply not listening to anyone. I know he had a trying day yesterday but he still has to follow the rules and be safe around his brothers. 

It’s going to be a really long day and while I love having out with my boys, I’m not looking forward to this weekend. I just don’t have the energy or ability to walk and both of those things are prerequisites to watching to challenging little boys.

My, this was inspiring. I wanted to comment and let you know that I’m currently writing a play about autism, (I’m a senior in high school), and I’m going around asking moms and dads for stories and words of advice for the play. Although these words are your own and I don’t plan on using them in my play, you’re still helping me to tell my story. I’ve noticed that medical definitions tell you something about autism, they’re merely one-layered and lack the humanity that stories like yours have. So I wanted to thank you for helping me in my creation of the father character, who is just as important as the child himself. If I could ask one thing, would you mind helping in one small aspect of my play? I’m including a scene at the end that uses the names of real mothers and fathers that I’ve met through blogs and online, (with their permission of course), and a single word that they’d use to describe either autism itself, (from their own or their child’s perspective), or one word to describe their child. It’s an artsy approach that I wanted to include to illustrate the realness of these situations, regardless of the fact that the rest of the play was a made up story with made up characters, developed to tell a story. I thank you so much for your hope and for your bravery. I’ll remember you as I write my play and need motivation to make someone proud.
