I have four boys w/Special Needs
My 15 yo has severe ADHD. He has improved dramtically, though, since we began homeschooling.
My 12 year old has Cystinosis www.cystinosisfoundation.org
and was diagnosed with this and Fanconi's Syndrome (kidney disease) at 13 months of age.
He was in end stage renal failure last year, and received (from my brother) a kidney transplant just before last Christmas. Life is so much better for him, now.
He was on 17 different medications, including daily growth hormone and procrit injections. Now, he's down to 6 meds and NO SHOTS!
He had Vit D-deficient rickets, as well as failure to thrive before the transplant. His legs turned out severely during the End Stage Renal Failure due to excessive bone turnover, so he will be having another surgery to correct them in September.
He is still photosensitive due to the crystalization in his eyes, and so wears transition lenses, a hat, etc. when he goes outdoors.
I also have 5 yo twins. One is Autistic and the other has APD (Auditory Processing Disorder).
There's never a dull moment around here, as I'm sure you all can relate.
