I was going through some pictures today and remembered how much our kids have grown up. I wanted to share some pictures with you all that have a story behind them.
The picture above was taken one week before Jordan's diagnosis aged 2.
This was evident when my in-laws came over for dinner. I knew something definately was not right about his overall behaviour, having a group of people over seem to distress him.
Here he is sitting on the kitchen bench next to the lolly jar, we were trying to cheer him up.
The following picture is of Jordan aged 3.5 after getting into the talcum powder and making a mess you would not believe, and the other is when he was 16 months old, full of smiles always.
The next photo is of Nicolas when he was our 7 month old little boomba eating dinner and making a mess as kids do..... and the other was of Chloe after she was born. Note: you can probaly just see on her arms some of the sores she was born with (Incontentia Pigmenti). She was not happy this day after having a bath. I remember having to peel her jumpsuits off her skin because her sores were so pussie and blistery.
This next photo below was of Jordan in hospital after been blessed with Meningitis (not) he was extremely sick and this photo was taken 6 days after he started to show signs of being able to sit up again and eat. Thank goodness he has not been sick like this since. It is so hard when your child is autistic and they are sick and they cant communicate with you whats wrong, so when i say a mother needs to be a Dr, nurse, physcologist, pyhsiotherapist, counsellor and speech therapist i am not wrong! Anyway talking of unwell, Jordan has been sick on/off for the last week and again vomited today. I am a bit worried as he seems really lethargic and sleepy. I will keep an eye on him, as there is some awful viruses going around now, after vomiting in my car this morning and again when he got home, i am hoping his electrolyte ice blocks will be frozen by the time he wakes up.
Until next time
