Neil and I had also discussed prior to going that we would like her to wean him off of all his medications so that we can see what his "normal" is. He has been on medications for almost 2 years for his developmental delay/mood disorder/ADHD. There has never been a complete stop between the med changes - they (the drs) always phase from one right to the other. We have no idea what to expect - it may be pure hell - but it may be a huge surprise. In my gut I just feel like maybe it's the medications with some of the behavior issues - like them causing him to be over tired and cranky. I don't know. All I know is that I don't know what is right - I just don't! I wish more than anything in the world I could fix him - I could heal him - and it all be done. But then again - what would it be to fix him...would it still be him? Or would it be someone he isn't?! These are the things that I know that run through my head and other special need's moms heads quite frequently. It really is a whole different world...and sometimes you wonder if anyone gets it at all. Anyhow - off the tangent and on to the appointment.
So Dr. B agreed to start the weaning process. I am kind of excited. I will deal with the tantrums and what-not just to see what he is like completely off of the meds. I will try and keep a journal of our day-by-day progress (or regression) whichever road it takes us down. We are also enlisting a behavioral therapist for Logan to see at least once a week - I am still waiting for her phone call - so I will update more on that later, too.
Thank you all for taking the time to read about our journey - Logan's journey. I will do whatever I can to help him through this phase (at least that is what I like to think it is). This is the place where I come to release my thoughts, my goals for him, and his progress.
Until next update,
