A Recap of a Boring Tues on Autism Ave. Here's to 1000 More!

Tues 7:36pm — pretty uneventful week on Autism Avenue so far.

Seizure free for the king so far…at least as far as we can tell… so maybe the new med (Onfi) is helping… although he wet the bed this morning and slept soundly thru it so maybe he has seizures during the night?

The king’s had 2 pretty good school days behaviorally from the reports from his 1:1 aide.

He did great swimming & following directions at his swim/OT session this afternoon.

Then Mom & Kyle picked me up from the train this evening and I got a HUGE grin thru the car window when he first saw me…

Right now wifey is upstairs in our bedroom watching tv and taking what we like to call “a mental health break”

And the king & I are sitting in the living room (well I’m sitting and he’s bouncing, meandering, lying, wandering) watching the Sesame Street Sleepytime Songs & Stories DVD…

I’m about to give him all his meds + Senokot & Melatonin…

It still blows my mind how well the king takes his pills… I put them on a spoon with baby food bananas and he wolfs them down….no matter the size!

 Sometimes we put 2-3 on a spoon at once! The day I discovered that was one of my proudest moments as an Autism Dad. LOL

If all goes according to plan, he’ll be asleep by 8:30ish and then the wife & I will have a late dinner in front of the tube…and before you know it she’ll be asleep on me on the couch and I’ll be very quietly watching Dexter and other shows she hates…as she sleeps…over her sleeping body …LOL

A nice boring uneventful day on Autism Avenue… Here’s to 1000 more!

    If only boring would fine my house !!! I can't even pay anyone to give me a hour to myself. I have face the fact yrs ago that whatever I do, this is my life and not one person will or want to be a part of it. I HATE ASD !!!!

    I cant do the mental health thing. I can still hear the commotion from down stairs. Theres nothing louder than an autisic kid who cant talk and only yells arguing with his bipolar sister who can talk but has no idea why shes arguing in the first place!
