Neuropsychologist/sinus surgery/regression


What a day! I started with the neuropsychologist's evaluation of my son. It lasted an hour and a half. This is the results, not the testing. My head is swimming with information and questions are finally starting to form. Thank God our attachment therapist went along because I am hoping he has a better grasp of it all then me. Our neuropsych is great and I know as things go along I can call her and ask her anything I want. She is that way. He is going to have to start seeing an Occupational Therapists for visual and sensory issues. There are also some memory issues. The thought of adding one more person to the mix is mind boggling but ok. My poor husband is having horrible headaches. He cannot come out of our bedroom all day because the light is just to much for him even though the drapes are drawn. He has a check up tomorrow but the doctor's office assures us this is normal for this point after sinus surgery. Our youngest is picking this week to regress. Of course he is. The good news is I know it will pass. The bad news is ....he's having it. So he is defiant, cranky and mean. Oh well. He told me he is going to be really annoying until he gets what he want. I told him I cannot be annoyed but to go ahead and give it a try. I'm sure he will oblige. I have to go pick up my son who swims from the Y and feed him so I can take him to driver's ed. Sometimes my kids threaten to drive me crazy. I tell them it will be a short trip. Oh wait. GREAT news. My husband and I celebrate our 25th anniversary next winter. We started getting trip information from our travel agent through email today. Perfect. I can picture myself relaxing on the beach when I am stressed. And you know, in my mind I don't need to do any crunches!

Aves,

I hope so too. Fortunately I have a strong God who is using wonderful friends to hold my shoulders up.

When I say,"your driving me crazy"! My husband says, "that's not a drive it's a short walk". Then I punch him. Crunches? What are crunches? Do they taste good? Looks like a glorious holiday. Your poor husband is having a migraine and that is normal? Right....

Your posts have really been in my mind and go along with some other stuff I've been mulling about in my mind. I find what you are going through and how you are going through it very interesting and inspiring.

I'm liking karen deborah. I was gonna ask what a crunch was, but she beat me to it. :-D

You did give me an idea - this year is our 20th. We deserve a vacation without kids. Wanna watch my kids for a week?

Karen and Renee,

A crunch is an item at Taco Bell: ) Thanks Coffee Bean. I was thinking last night though that there are only so many pieces of me. I am wondering what I have to give up to add in an Occupational Therapist. Something has to give to take more time.

Rachelle,

It was great seeing the 3 of you too. It was so cute to look up and see Ellie's little hand waving across the mall. It was awesome to watch and see her attachment to you.
