Cole needs some work done on his teeth. They'll probably have to put him to sleep. I have an appointment for him on April 7th or I'd have to wait until JULY.
I have to not let him eat all day, only water.
Cole is very set on his schedule. he has PPD-NOS (pervasive development disorder, not otherwise specified).
Cole gets up. He has to have juice (I mix with water), first thing. If he doesn't get that, he freaks out.
Then when the kids have cereal, he has some of his own. During the day he tells me "food" when he wants something.
The only thing he can have is water...all day... no food...no other kind of drink. I am so freaking out right now. It'd be hard with a "normal" child to not feed them all day but with my son and his diagnosis. I seriously don't' know how I am going to handle this.
The man who made the appointment with me said that he'd rather have kids come in the morning but there wouldn't be an opening until July. I don't think he should wait that long so I took the appointment.
I'm going to have to distract him all day and have no one eat in front of him. AHHHHHHHHHHH. I have no idea how I'm going to handle that day.
Hearing him ask for stuff is going to be heart wrenching and then I know he'll cry and whine because he's hungry.
We had an appointment earlier that day but I just changed it to the day before.
So my plan is to take a late nap with Cole on the 6th, then see how long he can stay up that night and feed him right before he goes to sleep, etc. Then hopefully he'll sleep during at least some of the day and I'll take him outside and maybe to the park to distact him.
