Well I haven’t done an update lately so I figured that I would do it now in between loads of laundry.
First off, let me address the story of the bug battle that occurred last night. On our way home from Dr. D’s yesterday we had to stop and get some health supplies for Lizze. While there I picked on one of those automatic air fresheners because of the leaking soil stack on our house doesn’t always smell good and we haven’t figured out how we were going to fix it. I set up this air freshener to spray every 30 minutes. So last night while watching NCIS Lizze took a potty break. While she was gone a GIANT Centipede climbed out from behind her bed and started up the wall. I wanted to take care of this before Lizze even knew about it. So…I used my special technique (patent pending) of rolling up some tape into a ball and sticking the ball onto the insect (in this case the centipede) and the insect cannot get away because it was stuck to the tape….Normally this works and keeps my freshly painted walls free from bug guts. But on this occasion just as I was reaching up to nab this thing (it was about 3 inches long) the air freshener went of behind me. The air freshener makes a relatively loud “HISS”. Well as you can all imagine I have been on edge lately so it doesn’t take much. At that moment it sounded like the centipede hissed at me and it scared the crap out of me. It fell on the bed and ran behind it. It’s actually pretty funny now. Anyways I caught up with it a few minutes later and it was evicted from my house…..
On to Gavin now. Most of you are aware that Gavin has been spending some time at his Grandparents as we try to hold everything together and keep him from going into another manic phase…. He seems to be doing better most of the time….When he comes home he does much better the he was. We seem to have the bi-polar under control for the time being… The autistic symptoms however are another story. He does seem to get along better with Elliott lately which is great because Elliott just wants to hang out with his big brother….Gavin normally won’t tolerate him at all. This is very hard on Elliott because he doesn’t understand…We are noticing that when Gavin is home Elliott won’t sleep at night. He is up about every hour through out the night crying..When Gavin is not home Elliott sleeps through the night without problems. This has happened every time. We haven’t figured exactly what is causing this but we do know that Gavin’s behaviors are scaring Elliott and stressing him. I see Dr. R in the morning and we will discuss how to handle this. When Elliott doesn’t sleep we don’t sleep. So we need to figure this out.
Lizze sounds terrible but her cough is becoming more progressive which is good. Hopefully she will begin feeling better soon and things will be easier for her. Elliott seems to be feeling alittle better since the antibiotics so that is also good.
My back has gone out again. But then again it is always out so that is nothing new. But I can’t remember it ever hurting this bad. Whenever this happens it take me a few weeks to adjust to the pain and get used to it. So I hope the weeks go by quickly:)
That’s all for now….
PS: I also wanted to say hello to the people visiting us from EBay..Thanks for looking at our auctions……
