December 8th, and I'm still not done with the ADHD/ODD blog. I'm at that point where I'm still learning a LOT about it. I've also hit a point where my son has completely went off his rocker and I am not sure how to proceed. I've kind of put blogging to the back burner until I can help him. Unfortunately, I can't disclose any details of what happened exactly, because this is a problem that will likely get a lot of judgement and the last thing I want is judgement when I'm not even sure about the correct plan of action. He is a little boy with a lot of problems. He is in need of serious counselling, and possibly therapy. I am going to be seeking SSI/D for him to make sure that he gets all services he needs. I've found that without it, the specialists don't take cases seriously. I plan on trying anything and everything to help my son.
On a different note, Gianna had her appointment with her Hematologist on Thursday. We have been going every 2 months to keep an eye on her blood counts and to watch her spleen to make sure it isn't enlarging any. Her counts at this appointment were wonderful! I don't have the paper in front of me, but I believe her hemaglobin was up to a 10. The highest it's ever been was a 9, and that was at the last appt 2 months ago. Her counts keep rising, and I think it's because of the donor milk we use. Her spleen is still normal size, no yellowing of her skin or eyes, no serious illnesses. She is just fantastic! Because she's had so many awesome appointments, we are now down to appointments every 3 months! Truly wonderful news.
Yet again, on a different note, we had the money and the means to rent a car to travel up to her appointment, but apparently you need a reservation for a car. The woman who I spoke with, in person, told me that you did NOT need a reservation. Which meant we had to take the risk of taking my car up to the appointment, and praying we made it up there and back. Luckily, we did. The car fought me. Smelled gross. Jerked and sputtered, but we made it. Now, if only we can make it until February. There's a van I saw that I want to buy, and it's pretty cheap, but we don't have the money for it just yet. I doubt it will be there when February rolls around. Hopefully, it will be though.
