No sleep for this #Autism Dad and other updates

Last night was rough. Elliott never fell asleep and is going on something like 36 hours right now. Thankfully, Lizze took Emmett to school and then took Gavin for his bloodwork. That being said, we had some major problems with Emmett this morning.

I was able to go back to bed a bit later this morning and feel fully recharged.

Elliott is still plugging along as though nothing is wrong, other than running a fever. I don’t know what’s going on with him but I wish I did.

As for Gavin, he’s doing pretty good today. We have to do his IVIG infusion this afternoon but that’s not a huge deal. Aside from talking endlessly about his one tablet game, he’s not complaining of any problems and hasn’t talked about hearing voices.

That’s a good thing.

The voices he’s been hearing are simply calling his name. I asked him if it was one of his team members and he said it wasn’t. Honestly, I don’t know how you can tell the difference between hearing voices from one hallucination or another. The only thing I can think is that when it comes to his team, he sees and hears them. The voices he’s complaining about are just sound.

This is really hard to wrap ones brain around sometimes.
