Well I made it through one month of work, two kids with the stomach bug, two double ear infections for Z, and a diagnosis of ADHD for JT. That equals one looong month.
At least we know what happened to Z. For 6 weeks she was the easiest baby ever….Miss total personality happy, gurgle, sleeper. All that went out the window after the first ear infection in December. We thought the meds, which upset her stomach got her off schedule. Then came the second ear infection and again thought the meds and the whatnot caused all the upheaval. But she never got it back together. I think we have been treating the symptoms and not every totally getting rid of the ear infections. We are going to see a pediatric ENT on 2/12….hopefully that will help. While we really loved my son’s ENT I decided that if she needs surgery this young we need to be at a facility better equipped for babies. Luckily we have Hasbro Children’s Hospital in RI. It’s a great place.
As for my little guy. January has been a rough month behavior-wise so looking for a fresh start in February (which brings Groundhogs Day…a very exciting day when you are 4!). Good news his OT eval will be on Monday. We have been waiting since early October for this evalulation. I am hoping some services will come quickly after and with that some improvement.
OK gotta run and start to get ready for the SuperBowl Party on Sunday!! GO PATS.
