During this period of time, we had to avoid lots of things and not everyone understood why.
It was really hard to help people understand that while Gavin was having fun, the excitement would lead to him decompensating and that’s not a good thing. Not even a little.
Lizze and I have the distinct honor of deciding how to adjust our lives in a way that provides Gavin with what he needs or rather doesn’t need and do so without negatively impacting the other boys.
This is going to present us with challenges and difficult decisions, especially with the holidays beginning next week.
Over the next day or so, we’re going to have to figure some of this shit out and formulate some kind of plan.
This may mean we do holidays at home and just have people stop over a little at a time. This sorta limits things and allows for a better environment for Mr. Gavin to exist, while still being able to see family over the holidays.
Either way, we’re going to have to readjust our lives to better ensure his best interests are being met as much as possible.
