Now for our own sanity Hayden is medicated for his behaviours but the challenge we have been trying to overcome has always been that he does not swallow medication. Especially tablets. Everything has to go through his peg.
Last week I was told that Hayden's behaviour is at the extreme end of things and that the consultant we see has never seen behaviour like it. He has concluded that Hayden needs to be referred on. Also that Haydens behaviour is like one of a kind certainly in his experience and finally that Hayden should have it noted that his behaviour is his most significant disability, even more significant than the rigors of cystinosis.
Phew..... we live with this behaviour everyday and most significantly the unmedicated times of before school and after school. It is exhausting and stressful. Last week when we were at the appointment I was unwell so was at a low point. So it sure felt good to hear that his behaviour has been put in perspective and it is not just me the parent and professionally the teacher over exaggerating things.
Fingers crossed that something more can be done for use before we can no longer cope with everything he throws at us.
So while I have written a lot of doom and gloom there are a few moments of spontaneous fun....alright this is when he is medicated.....
