Nate's Appointment Today

Today we went to Duke Neurobehavioral Unit.  He has made progress and that's what we have to focus on.  Not so much his level but that there is progress.  He was classified as severely delayed.  Now, moderate to severely delayed.  Hey, it's progress in the right direction.  They also want us to go to an autism clinic to have him dx'd.  Though they also don't think he has it,  it would help get him other services and therapies he desperately needs if he were 'labeled.'  I'm not in a rush.  Doctor did say he's doing well with us and that she thinks there should be some type of human rights violation in regards to Nate.  Though I know his early life was not a good one, sometimes when I'm reminded of it, it hurts.  I guess I just feel we all need to move on and that Nate is healing with us.  I want to focus on that, not his past. 

Nate actually did great at the appointment impressing her with his block building and puzzle attempts.  Stopped to get fajita shells for dinner.  While there, Easter candy was 75% off.  Well then.  Had to get Nate his favorite...cadbury egg.  He loved it.  Picked up two bags of jellybeans and one bag of peanut butter cups for the rest of us to share.  Got home and teens went to a kick off at the church for an event they'll be participating in this weekend.  Not a bad day.  All are in bed now but Bojan who is catchign up on some school work.  After Irina gets home from work, I'm going to bed!  Early for a change.  Ms. Bettie came over and made egg salad with the kids today.  They said it was the best.  Kind of feeling bad about that one. LOL.  They love Ms. Bettie and goodness knows, we all love her cooking.
