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.
