Sometimes you just need to let it out

What a week!! Yesterday was by far the hardest day I've had being a mommy. It's no secret that my 5 yr old has autism, well he melted down so bad that I wasn't able to comfort him. He has never melted down like that ever. I first called my mom because well isn't that what every mom does it call her mom and ask "mom what should i do?". She advised me to call the doctor to have him seen right away. Called the doctor and they couldn't see him till 6:30..yay me. Mike at that time was on his way home to help. Can i just say how hard it is to see your child that mind you is nonverbal wanting so bad to tell me what he wants and nothing comes out. I've never seen anyone have a seizure but I'm pretty sure he had a mild one. So fighting tears I just held him tight in my arms all while he's grabbing, pinching and throwing himself at me. I even had to call the doctor's office twice because the first time I couldn't hear over Xavier. We get him to the doctor's and he gets a clean bill of health, they seem to think he was just extremely tired.

On a great note he's back to his old self, full of smiles and giggles. On the other hand mommy has a lot of battle scars.....

Today I called my sister in law and just cried and thanks Dani for being there for me. Love ya long time Pal:)
