Diagnosis ~~ Finally!


A few of you who have been with my blog for awhile may remember that my youngest son is a handful.
So much so that he was asked to leave a few preschools and when he started Kindergarten he spent everyday until recently in the principals office.

I have been fighting an uphill battle with many roadblocks to find out what is going on with him.

He's such a cutie:

But my Lord, that kid can wear you out.

Long story short, we saw a pediatric neurologist today.
She diagnosised him.

ADD/ADHD

Something I have said for years.
Yes.
You read that right...Years.
It's been at least 2.5 that we have been waging this war to get some help.

Would have been closer to 3 but his first daycare felt it not necessary to mention anything to me about his behavior until his last day when she got a bit nasty in her comments.

Whatev!

So now we know.
Now we work on helping him focus.

It's still going to be an uphill battle but for now a small hill has been conquered.

Yay!!!! This must be such a relief for y'all and now u can get some specific, targeted help and relief!! I know u must've walked a very challenging road, your sweet little guy most of all. Praying this will be a breakthrough to many fun, exciting days ahead with little to no principal's office visits (hey, he is a little boy, after all!). Thanks for sharing this good news w us! God bless :)
