I don't think I ever updated on Justin. Life has just been insane.

Dr. told me the surgery went perfect. We were told a 5 day stay and were able to leave in 3 days because he did so good. I was so happy to get out of there. We had a couple of good nurses. We had more crappy nurses though. My cell phone was also stolen from my purse while we were there. Justin was SO HAPPY to go home....

He had a rough couple of weeks with bladder spasms. He is also having some on and off issues when peeing (pain). Dr. wants him to pee every 2 hours so his bladder doesn't get too full and see if that helps. We can do that no problem at home because I remind him. At school though he doesn't do it because he forgets. I asked the teacher if she could remind him and she told me "I'll do my best". Thanx...

We are now down to one car....so we aren't doing OT and ST that he desperately needs. I am hoping after Xmas we can start back up.

Justin started Cub Scouts and he LOVES it so far. Its not a LOT of physical activities..so he is able to participate in a lot of stuff. He is earning his first badge on Tuesday.

Oh.. I was concerned about him "dazing off". I noticed him doing it a couple times during the day lately. His neurologist ordered an EEG...we did that last week and the tech said it looked good to her (thank god) and now we have an MRI on Nov. 4th. with sedation. He will not be happy about that. I am praying for good results with that too.

I have been having LOTS of issues with my 5 year old. He def. has a behavior problem. I have been reading online and he sounds like O.D.D. I have an appointment Dec. 2nd with someone at All Childrens Hospital..I am hoping we can get him in to therapy..SOMETHING. Its just getting worse and worse and I am at my breaking point with him. (how awful does that sound)

Things are going good for DH, DD and myself. Well thats whats new with us!

You sound just about as busy as I feel. Looks like you have a lot of apt's coming up & hopefully they'll give you the answers you need.

DH & I had to go down to 1 car too, just needed the money, and we still are broke, never changes, stinks that the 1 car has to be the family automobile. That's why we bought a new car, so we wouldn't have it in the shop all the time, too bad this new car has given us nothing but problems.

Glad you & your DH are doing well, that's a plus when you are. I know me & DH, depending on the day, it's hot or cold, he works too much, we don't take home enough money & our bills are getting worst. Life.
