David, our youngest was up and down most of the night with his cough. Poor guy sounds like he is going to cough up a lung or something. So I spent the night monitoring him to make sure he was ok. Long night. His breathing finally calmed around 5 am so I got to sleep a bit.
You forget how quickly 6:30 comes until the wife turns on the light so she can get dressed for work. So I was up and about, got all of the kids off to school this morning, and then laid on the couch. David woke up briefly, long enough to eat something so that he could take his morning pills, and some cough medicine. Then he sacked out again. So I snoozed as long as he was snoozing. Had to lay some noise traps around his bed so that I would wake if he did. (he can be sneaky, if he thinks he can get away with something, he will try.)
Four hours later, I am up and about, feeling more rested. Coffee in one hand, shame it’s decaf, and a diet coke in the other. Bring on the day!!!
Completed the paperwork for requesting a Facilitated IEP. We will see how that goes.
I am thinking about writing an article about auto-immune disorders and how they affect men with special needs kids. So if you have an auto-immune disorder, and you have special needs kids, and are willing to answer a few questions, please let me know. You can send me your information through the contact us page.
