Even the smallest "insult" to our kids' perfection can feel so sickeningly wrong, can't it? But thank God we live in a world where help is readily available! Another mom I knew down the street went through Early Intervention for her daughter's sensory issues, and, a couple of months into it, she was telling me how horrified she was at first, but how amazing and wonderful the progress was that the fantastic therapist was making with her child. I hope, if you guys end up being in the EI system for a while, that it works as well for Ro as it did for the two kids I know whose moms praise its work so lavishly. (I think both felt bad/embarrassed when they started, but ended up so happy...)
My latest thyroid numbers are... low, but still only one outside the normal range,and the other two are right at the bottom of normal. I know I've read somewhere about people thinking you need to start synthetic thyroid hormone at levels above the current "too low" level. If I don't feel better by my next blood draw (2 weeks), I may start inquiring about that. I'm less irritable and otherwise feel less "weird" than I did when HYPERthyroid, but this level of fatigue makes me almost incapable of handling bedtime without DH here to help. I can barely move by 8 pm.
We picked up our CSA produce yesterday as usual, but, for the first time, A. sort of noticed that they were food items. He bit into two pears, one apple, a raw potato and a raw sweet potato last night. Any time he got near the fruits/veggies, he attacked. It was so funny. There are tiny little teeth marks in half our items.
