My youngest son, Gabriel has Dystonic Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy. He is exclusively G-tube fed, except for little "tastes" of food here and there, is on 4 different meds three times daily, and needs nebulizer treatments on a daily basis. He can not sit up/crawl/walk etc, and has very little neck control. We use a Kid Kart for mobility. We have been kept busy with in home therapy up until this month, when Gabe turned three. He just started an introduction to Pre-school (right before they are done for the year, lol) and will receive PT/OT/Speech there.
We also have a seven year old, and five year old. Both have been through the birth to three program for speech. Our oldest is now struggling with reading/spelling, and the teacher has already implied taking him to the doctor for "meds" as his focus/attention is sometimes lacking.
I'm also expecting-our last child, as I think we will definitely have our hands full by then. I am due in August, and have had a pretty anxiety filled pregnancy so far, due to the traumatic delivery of Gabriel. My OB says I am going through PTSD...everything is going okay so far, it's just my own worries/anxiety that is an issue now. The chance of another abruption happening is 30% apparently, so my doctor is being really wonderful and trying to help keep me calm. She is having me come in every two weeks already, as she said my anxiety is only going to get worse as time goes on.
