Like a kick to the crotch

Gavin just had a huge tantrum because we corrected him for saying something to Emmett that was not nice. 

As a result, he lost his TV.

This was pretty consistent with the other tantrums, however, the level of violence and self-injury has escalated.

Thankfully,  his rage was only directed at himself and the objects in his immediate area.

This time around for whatever reason,  he decided to include punching himself in the crotch, repeatedly. 

If he wasn’t doing this on purpose,  I would feel much worse about this than I already do. 

He punched himself in the crotch,  screamed in pain and then did it again and again.

He scratched up his face and legs again but nothing serious. I’m debating about whether or not to take him to Akron Children’s Hospital and get him admitted again.

As terrible as this sounds,  it could help speed up the process of getting him into treatment. The big downside to that is he would miss the Cleveland Clinic in the morning. That simply can’t be avoided.

This insanity has to stop.

The book should be arriving sometime today, take a look at it as soon as you can. I really hope you and Lizzie will have a minute to read it and will help you guys with this. 


Actually they show that they already "attempted" to deliver… Not sure what that means, but they got it. 


I hope things calm down long enough for you to get the surgery he needs so you can do everything else that you must do. Good luck with everything…I know none of this could be easy
