You may not realize what a HUGE deal this is, but Christian asked for a doctor on Monday evening.  On his own.  Using words.  And then proceeded to poke around at his neck and ears.


Not awesome that he wasn’t feeling well, but SO AWESOME that HE asked to go to the appropriate person who could help him even though he has been scared to go there in the past.  (He’s not a fan of shots.  Who can blame him?)

Tuesday, Christian and I went to the doctor.  (Yeah, Mamas apparently get strep, too. 😦  Yay for meds! )  He wasn’t overly happy about going when it was finally time for our appointment, but he came.  And listened fantastically well!  And anticipated what was going to happen next.  (Like when he saw the doctor with the “ear light” and he took off his headphones so that she could look before we even had to ask him, too! 😀 )  If I hadn’t been SO sick at the time, I would have totally happy danced right there in the examining room!!!  [Feel free to envision that. 😉 ]

And guess what, he needed antibiotics, and we opted for oral meds instead of the usual injection, and Christian is taking the meds amazingly.  [insert a look of happy shock here]  He just needs a chocolate chaser, but really, who doesn’t after taking liquid antibiotics???

I am SO proud of my boy.  Way to go, Christian!!! 🙂


I received a phone call today from our county case worker saying that our request from a specific piece of sensory equipment had been granted!!!  🙂  [you can insert happy dancing here (i.e. “the running man”, “cabbage patch”, etc.)] 

Ironically, I had been thinking about the equipment the last couple of days, since it had been awhile since I had talked to Christian’s case worker and C is having some MAJOR sensory issues here at home that just really NEED to be filled before he can get any work done effectively.

[contented sigh]  I am SO incredibly thankful!  This wish couldn’t have been granted at a better time.  What a blessing!  God is faithful!

The equipment should be coming some time in June.  I can’t wait!
