I put my son’s pending registration in for the sports program via CAN (Canucks Autism Network) the second time around. Thankfully it is at a different place though so it’ll seem “new” if he a confirmed registration for the Spring session.

I finally got all the papers ‘to file’ off my desk and into their respective folders. I wish I could stay on top of that better, but that would require me never being interrupted I think to happen. The typically scenario is me about to put something away and then I get pulled away so I quickly put it to the side so I don’t lose it. I do this 5, 10, 20 times and then I have a decent little stash/pile going on. Oh well, it could certainly be worse!

Day 58 ~ abnormal surprise

Day 58 ~ January 4th, 2018

Finally went and did the last bit of blood work on me and my son that was needed for the genetics referral this morning. It was a small adventure in the sense that everything was great until we got out of the car in the parkade… I’m not sure exactly what caused the ruckus, maybe the way the sounds echoes inside there, maybe he just didn’t want to hold my hand, or perhaps he missed a photo opportunity and I didn’t realize — in any case, the extreme abnormal behaviour confused me! It did not help that the stupid payment machine for parking wasn’t working properly *vexed face* and it was by two sets of elevators so this caused even more crashing rage from the kiddo because he couldn’t go inside them.
I had to nearly drag him from the lights to the building across the street flopping and screaming, it was ridiculous -_- When we got inside the building he crashed and flopped for a handful of minutes and then calmed down, but it was just such a surprise because he’s done so well on outings for close to a year.

Day 30 ~ a pajama day

Day 30 ~ December 7th, 2017

The kiddo isn’t feeling any better this morning T-T
He was even able to tell me that his throat was hurting, which is something new, by holding his neck and saying “hurt”. Unfortunately not much I can do about that besides give him a throat lozenge, but he won’t take any… His fever still seems high too so I stayed focused on keeping him cool and hydrated. Thankfully he only threw up two times, once at either end of the day. He is becoming a big boy and after sitting in his sweat all day he has rank b.o. I can’t believe how bad it is and he’s only just 10 years old!
