I don’t even know what day it is anymore. This last stint at the hospital has thrown everything out of whack.
The boys are all thrown off and the friggin dogs are so stressed out that they have diarrhea, not that you wanted to know that.
Neither Lizze nor I have gotten much sleep in the last 7 days. We’re going to look at this week as sort of a reboot week. Basically, we’re trying to get our bearings and taking this week to do so.
I can’t stress enough how much of an impact something like your child spending a week in the hospital has on a special needs family. It think it would impact any family.
Hopefully, things will clear up and I’ll at least know what day it is without having to look at my phone. 😉

Hi Rob. Thanks for all of the ongoing updates. As a father of a son with autism  I completely identify with your chaotic life. On a complete side note – did you sell your listing on ebay for the game console?
Have you had any luck with your kids playing video games? Our son will ** kind of ** play Wii bowling but hard to get him focused on learning the right motions…he just likes seeing the pins get splattered…no concept of winning or score or innate satisfaction from getting more pins each game…and can't get him interesting in any other games…
would love to hear your experiences as well as results of your ebay auction!
Nice to meet you. 🙂
The Vita sold and I did pretty well on it. You always lose money but it is what it is. 🙁
My kids love video games. They are all really good at most games. They usually play their 3DS but played the 360 and PS3 when we had them. They have all been sacrificed. I will say the the Wii was probably the most frustrating for them.
They do better with a regular, non-motion based controller. Having said that, they LOVED Kinect when we had it. Fruit Ninjas was great and we all had fun with that.
Our oldest, is allowed to help his brothers when they need help sometimes, but we limit his exposure. He gets way to intense plus with his recent diagnosis of epilepsy, known sensitivity to flashing lights, it makes us nervous.
Myself, I love games. They were one of my only outlets. I enjoyed the Call of Duty\’s, but really enjoyed the Playstation Vita. I loved relaxing on the couch after the boys were down and playing Hot Shots Golf.
I hope to be able to replace my Vita and eventually grab another 360 because Halo 4 is calling my name. Maybe it will work out and maybe it won\’t.
As far as my kids are concerned, they take after me and love all things techy. I think that\’s helped some of them, especially Emmett to break through his silence and learn to speak. I used my Android smartphone as a learning device for him and it really helped.
Anyway, I hope I answered you questions. I could also recommend games for every console out there is your looking for options.
