Well this week we went to see the Neurologist for our 6 month check up. We have to go back in 6 months again. I am very disappointed that the blood work results were not available to me. I would have liked to know where Dakota’s levels were.
We didn’t see the neurologist we saw one of the nurse practitioners that I really am not crazy about. This is why I don’t like Children’s in Milwaukee because I find most of them rude. She saw how bad Dakota’s tick in his shoulders were and she said that she doesn’t want to make no changes because of two meds he is on. She told me to get him off them. I was really annoyed with this.
Well I haven’t been able to do much this week because of the med changes. This time around it was pure hell, not only for me but for Dakota. We started the Intuniv on Tuesday. We took away the clonodine and the dexadrine. Well let’s just say that Tuesday was absolutely horrible. Dakota was so hyper. He couldn’t think before he spoke or acted. He couldn’t calm himself down. His emotions were all over the place. It was terrible. I didn’t like what I saw so I immediately called they psychiatrist.
Well yesterday was an appointment I was waiting for and I was quite surprised at how it turned out. In the beginning of June Dakota went to my Uncle’s Farm. My dad told me that he noticed Dakota’s left shoulder jerking a whole lot. I said something to my husband who said I have noticed this for the past 6 – 7 months. I was like why didn’t you tell me. He claims he thought he did. Maybe he did and I thought nothing of it. After my dad told me I really noticed it. I not only noticed it the Autism therapist noticed it then too.
Well this weekend was not the greatest when the Dr did the med cuts. Dakota was all over the place. He was jumping from things and I am sorry but it wasn’t very safe. So I put his meds back to where they were until I could get in touch with the Dr. Well they could have simple told me he needed to be on the dose for 24 hours for the EKG. Ughh they didn’t need to make me try to go through a whole weekend of havoc.
Well I never got a chance to have a meeting with the teachers this week as Dakota’s teacher, her little baby was really sick with a fever. So we rescheduled it for next week and it should be interesting.
Our meeting is about bullying, planning what to do the rest of the school year if he is sick alot, homework, and what ever other issues come up.
