I was up so many time last night..... I have gotten really good at shutting my brain off but last night I couldn't! Must be time to get back in the float tank!
I was thinking about everything I have to follow up for James.
A digestive kit is suppose to be coming to the house in the next two weeks, his GP was suppose to call me back yesterday to let me know that she had organized the form for pathology for a special urine test, waiting on important results to come back etc. Thinking about what will happen if pyrolles are positive.
The reason I am thinking about all this medical stuff is that James has been so different (happy, energized, calm) on antibiotics. It is not just a coincidence this is not the first time things have changed when he is on a antibiotic. His immunologist and GP are aware of this.
At the start of the year his immunologist put him on a triple antibiotic therapy for 3 weeks to reset the gut bacteria.... it was hardcore (3 antibiotics 3 times a day, 9 doses a day) but the difference we saw in James was insane. This time again, its like another leap out of the shadows for James. If he didn't have verbal dyspraxia you would consider him mainstream the last few days.
It is telling us that he has a major gut imbalance. Bad bacteria, parasites and gut infections all effect the brain! James has had so much testing done but now I am determined to get to the bottom of it and now that he is older I am pushing our specialists further. He tests have always shown inflammation and he isn't absorbing important vitamins and minerals, he doesn't poop with the aid of laxative etc etc.
Also Scarlett's ENT was suppose to call me yesterday in regards to her recent hearing test. One of the things I hate the most is chasing people!!! So yesterday 2 doctors that were suppose to call... didn't!!! I have to chase therapists and specialists, schools etc all the time for James. I understand people are busy but this is how people fall through the cracks..... bloody shits me bad. I am a proactive parent so I stay on top of them all but that's a full time bloody job in itself.
Today is speech therapy and soccer for James. So I am going to do my daily post on here and then organize this house, 500 loads of washing, sick of stepping on Jatz biscuits (thanks James).
It's really hard to maintain a house, chase two kids and take James to his 552 appointments every week. May be I should get a cleaner? I actually looked into it recently but I couldn't fathom the amount of money. That's the cost of James' weekly OT, That's far more important than getting someone else to do something I can do.
My gosh Scarlett is getting to me lately.... 2 year old gremlin. She doesn't stop... she will scream and scream and throw herself around if she doesn't get her own way and its driving me batty. I ignore her as much as possible but she doesn't stop. Like doesn't stop.
Oh here we go, James has just climbed up on the kitchen bench next to me, oh and now Scarlett is here too! One of my PET HATES is children sitting on the kitchen bench. I can't really get mad though because James has always done it, from a wee babe. He has always felt safe and secure up here and I have never stopped him because he interacts when I am in the kitchen and he is happy. Now that Scarlett is doing it too it just really really gets to me. James won't touch anything he isn't suppose to, Scarlett will touch everything she isn't suppose to touch and again telling her NO is like I stole a chocolate teddy straight out of her mouth.
And here I am considering adding another little gremlin into the mix.... maybe I am insane!
Have a great day,
