Alex had a horrible visit yesterday evening. We wanted to repeat the Tuesday happiness and get some more pictures and video, but whatever fleeting happiness my little boy enjoyed on Tuesday was completely gone yesterday. We couldn’t even get him into the car to try to take him to a playground. He was hitting himself, screaming, and only for about five minutes did he smile any.
We’re going to be pushing hard to get him on allergy medication. He was on some a while ago, and while it didn’t do anything amazing, it seems like he’s gotten much worse since we discontinued it. His doctor believed it wasn’t helping any, but he seems to have his roughest time very shortly after going outside. He scratches and rubs at his head the same way I’ve wanted to at times. I doubt allergy medicine will make a huge difference, but these last two weeks or so have just been awful – anything is worth a try.
Not a lot else to say. Bad visits make it tough to want to write, so that’s really all I’ve got.
