I realized I complained and complained about being ill, but never bothered to tell you that I think I'm 90% better now. The doctor gave me a prescription for prednizone and it is working. I still have the regular sinus pain, but I pretty much don't feel that anymore.
In more exciting news, Punkin had two accidents today. Not too bad. Well, 2 and 1/2 -- I caught him mid-poop. (hehehe) I think it's going to be more difficult at school because, well, it's school. I mean, it's about a thousand times more stimulating than home. And he really doesn't want to potty for anyone but me. I think it's because I do the "YEAH!!!" voice and dance.
Speaking of overstimulation, we had another OT visit today. We had to switch OTs because someone had a baby and his other OT is covering her patients. Anyway, she's very nice, but we are kind of starting over again. She assured me that the ideas I had from the conference and from other resources are completely appropriate for him and the process is more about trial and error than anything else. She's going to teach me how to do the brushing and deep joint compression next Monday. And she said the sensory breaks will be at times when he normally starts to lose it -- in other words, it's an inuitive process aimed at preventing meltdowns. I guess I understood it better than I thought -- it just seemed so logical and nothing's ever that simple.
Now I'm used to bodily fluid clean-up, but this time it landed on my couch. So I think it's time to rent an upolstery cleaner, as it's my turn to host Bunco next week. In the meantime, I continue to invest time, energy, and money into the fabulous product that is Resolve Pet Stain and Odor Remover. LOVE it. To which you point out, "But Erika, you don't have a pet." To this I say, "SOMEONE PEED ON MY COUCH TODAY and almost pooped on the carpet. Toddlers and dogs -- not so different, actually."
