2007 ~ 2010
I can't quite believe that 3 years have passed since I last posted here, and that my little man will be 11 in around 19 days time ~ where does it go? I really do need to make more of an effort.
Michael continues to go from strength to strength, and continues to amaze us. He is a lovely child who enjoys life and developmentally has come on in leaps and bounds, he still attends a school for children with ASD and Learning Difficulties, but has amazed the medical professionals involved in his life at just how well he has developed. As his Resp said a little while ago, "that's the first conversation I ever had with Michael." Michael views this Dr as his best friend, and is always really pleased to see him, on this occasion he wandered down the hospital corridor holding his hand and discuss the latest episode of Dr Who, you just got to know what to talk about!! Michael lives in a world of Dr Who and Sarah Jane Adventures, so mention those and he'll talk for hours! He loves playing Lego, and Playmobile figures, the adventures they have with the Dr in his Tardis.
Its been an eventful 3 years in more ways than one, too much to go into here in any real detail, but there are times during the last 3 years when I really could've done with here to vent my spleen at (as they say!!) The respite we spent so long waiting for, (almost 6 years) lasted all of about 6 months, before the wheels fell off and we found ourselves embroiled in a bitter war of words with the local authority......the long and the short ~ we gave up in the end, there's only so much talking to yourself you can do!
