Hi all, I know this is not necessary for me to be doing but I feel a little odd returning early March to then disappear again so feel that a little explanation necessary mostly because I'll be continuing this path for a while until things settle down. So it makes sense to explain myself and that way those that have been wondering where I am will know.
Ok for those that don't know I have twin daughters and both of them are autistic they are aged 6 years old and one of them has now been diagnosed with what is called Precocious Puberty which means she is hitting puberty earlier than she should be. Lots of doctor's appointments and many tests to conclude exactly where she is on the scale of puberty I will get the results of those in the coming weeks, the first lot of tests for her are coming up on the 30th of this month. Not good for her as with being autistic she can't stand needles and reacts badly so it'll be a very stressful time and the worst is it has to be done intravenously as they need to take blood from her every 15 min.
I have a 9 year old son with a Major eating disorder and though he's been under care with professionals since he was 3 no one has been able to help him so this coming Monday him, the girls and I are going to spend one week in Star Ship hospital in a special unit and he'll be monitored by psychiatrists and physiologists and a Neuro surgeon and pediatric doctors and I'm hoping they can get to the bottom of this eating disorder.
Over the course of the past and the future my life is consumed with caring for my children and though I enjoy like the rest of the world a moments break my breaks don't come easy, sleep around here is miracle as with autistic kids they don't sleep well, there is always something going on and never enough time for me to have a little break even with respite care there is other jobs that need doing so the luxury of getting on a site such as this one is just that a luxury.
I would love to be a member on a full time basis but reality is I can't so am what I'm going to call myself a fly by member lol fly in and out and when time does permit I will join in on the forum discussions and weekly challenges. I'd love to comment on everyone's layouts personally but afraid I can't do that as it's a time consuming process to individually comment on everyone. So for future layout postings know that you all inspire me and I'm always smiling when I'm viewing all of your works of art's
I'm not complaining about not being able to be more active in here either please don't think my above comments are resentment towards my children as I love them all very very very much and I don't want to come off like a sorry complainer; I'm just trying to explain and express my situation so that when I'm suddenly vanishing all the time you all will know why now
Last weekend **Easter Weekend** My oldest son and his girlfriend moved in with us, which just made life more busy and this house is very small and fitting in two more people making it a total of 7 is not an easy task but we have managed, the girls took well to there older brother moving in but aren't taking it well on other aspects of it due to them needing tight routines all this has upset the apple cart so to speak.
Well that was a big post lol time to get the dinner cooked for the kids and for what it's worth Happy Belated Easter to you all big hugs all round
