It’s worse than I thought :(

      3 Comments on It’s worse than I thought :(


I just heard back from my brother, as to the extent of things that need done on the car. Apparently, it needs front and back brakes, front/back rotors, bearings on both sides of the front end, both tie rods and there’s a fuel leak.

These repairs simply aren’t possible. I don’t know the total number but I wouldn’t be surprised if it climbed near or even over a thousand dollars.

At least I know I’m not getting ripped off because it’s my brother looking at everything.

All I can do at this point is make it drivable, safely drivable and pray we can make it until tax return. That’s the soonest I could pull this off. Until then, it’s one more thing I have to worry about and be powerless to resolve.



I’ve said this a million times before. So often, the toughest part of raising 3 kids with Autism, isn’t Autism at all. It’s all of the everyday things that I can’t keep up with, because Autism requires so much of my time, energy and resources. This is a perfect example of the unexpected creating strain.

Hopefully, we make the car safe to drive for the next month or two. I’m praying that returns aren’t delayed this year as a result of this new tax laws that may or may not take affect.

One thing at a time.. likely you could focus on the other things first and put off the neuropsych testing for a little while.. Its alot of information at once, but you are in expert hands with this doctor and he is getting to the bottom of it. You will find answers for Gavin. Just be patient.
