Good evening all,
What a day we have had in this mad house.
What a day indeed.
Firstly, have I told you before how much I hate Sydney traffic?
Well, I do.
I also dislike Sydney car parks, they are narrow and don't like the rims on my car.
I did have to drive in Sydney peak hour traffic today, that doesn't help my cause in the slightest bit.
Christmas Party Day: Up early this morning getting the excited kiddies ready to be out the door at 9.30am. James and Scarlett were extremely lucky to be given tickets to the Kidzwish Christmas Party. Kidzwish is a non-profit organization that offers services and events for disadvantaged and disabled children in the Illawarra. The Christmas Party today was amazing. Well executed, well thought out and planned. When the event started I had tears in my eyes, it made me so proud to be part of this community and be included in such an amazing event.
Not only was there a stage show for thousands of kiddies, they provided lunch, goodie bags and a gift for every child to collect as they left. Just beautiful.
Scarlett and I had to leave the party early to head to her ENT who is located all the way in Bondi, an almost 2 hour drive both ways.
Scarlett has been suffering from tonsillitis and her GP wanted her ENT to make the call on action for the pesky tonsils.
Happy to say they are staying in her little body for now, closely monitored by the best man for the job. It was a quick visit and the ENT was running on time (shock horror) we normally have to wait a minimum of 45 minutes for the kids scheduled appointments.
Doc didn't charge us today... man, thank goodness for that!
The amount of money we dish out for specialists and therapists on the daily is pretty insane so I am always thankful for these moments.
On the way back to the car though I did see a lovely little dress (black of course) in a shop window.
I treated myself.
I feel a little bad buying myself a dress.
Why, I don't know. God knows I deserve it.
You'll be happy to know that my computer is now running at a normal speed, the speed of my fingers. Just needed to restart the computer, lol. Yes, Theo you were right again.
My darling husband is always on my case about shutting down my computer properly. I never do. I just close the lid and go about my day. I don't have time to re read and spell check this bad boy half the time, who has time to click the left corner, hit shut down, wait for it to shut down before packing it away.
Meh.... I will from now on.
Got some mail today. Bloody excited. Its crazy what excites me these days.
James' transdermal cream arrived from the Sydney compounding chemist.
James has a MTHFR gene mutation.
It means his body can't methylate vitamin B's.
This cream was made up for him and is packed with B6 and Zinc, we need to increase the levels dramatically of both these crucial vitamins for James.
Low Zinc is associated with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Low zinc causes loss of taste and smell, cause behavioral disturbances, low immune function, issues with sleep, hyperactivity, delayed emotional and mental development and poor concentration.
Low vitamin B6 affects neurotransmitters including serotonin, dopamine, noradrenaline and GABA.
Low vitamin B6 effects speech, eye contact, tantrums and stimming.
It's not hocus pocus there is scientific evidence.
I have said it before and I will say it again, get your childs full blood count done, have it looked over by a knowledgeable practitioner. Do something to lift poor levels. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
