I'm sitting here watching the Colorado tragedy thinking how blessed I am that I have my boys. Justin our 11 year old with Autism has been through so much. But at least he's still here with me. We got up at 5 yesterday morning. He had an appt three hours away. He went to get in the car and he fell down three of our steps. The poor fellow got in the car not complaining. We drove the three hours there and the three hours back. We got home he started crying. We had to go the hospital. He just in so much pain. We went to his reg dr she couldn't figure out that problem we went to a specialist. It took us 5 hours and he stood for most of that time, because it hurt him to sit down. He broke his shoulder when he fell down the steps. For six hours he didn't even complain. He's such a trooper. He's a strong guy. Just at 11 he's been through more than most adults I know. He's home today and he's walking around mostly. Tonight I have pain meds to give him so he will sleep. We def had a very long day yesterday.

He has an appt in Two weeks to see what it's doing? I'm not really sure they didn't say. I think they were trying to say the least amount possible so they didn't scare him. He was really sensitive. I'm going to take them a basket of goodies when I go back, because the entire staff was freaking awesome when dealing with him. Although, at our reg dr office the parents there were all acting as though he had some kind of disease. It was driving me crazy to not say something, but I didn't. I have to sometimes put my Autism Warrior mom self in check lol. I would give every one lectures other wise. One parent went to the window and asked if she could wait in the other hallway just to get away from him. She was very rude. At the two week check up we should know more about how long it will take. Yes, he was a very big boy didn't seriously complain for six hours. He's not even complaining now he just doesn't sit down a lot.

Normally they do it and I just don't say anything unless they get RUDE to him Personally. IT just was annoying me that all he was doing was pacing back and forth, because his shoulder was killing him. When he would go to sit down he would start screaming, because it really hurt him to sit. I was like really Lady you have to be kidding me? I hate when people act that way. People don't realize how they act and how they make themselves look. They look seriously dumb and uncaring. I never have acted as though a child with a disability is any different than anyone else. I guess some people just don't get it

Edee, i think it stems from narrow mindedness. people are so scared of the unknown and so focused on themselves that they dont care enough to take into account the childs feelings.

how is he feeling today?

he's okay. He's feeling much better. He's making me play hang man to guess his birthday wish that is in January unlike a normal child who just come out and tell me. You have to love him. lol He's started a new thing of just throwing out random facts about a month ago and it drives me nuts. He is something else..
