The road to recovery

Image
It has been a long three weeks of healing for Noah and his femur. His pain has gotten much easier to deal. Of course that right hip is quite a booger. Always giving him some pain
His Dr was not much help and disagreed with my plan to keep him on a blended diet and vitamin d supplements but since I made this decision for the first time He is gaining weight and looks amazing. A mother always knows!although these roads are not easy all the time I will always take the path I know in my heart is right for him. Dr's are wrong with this disorder and always have been. For 13 years they have been playing the guessing game with his life and now. ..
I take control.

Love and special needs

Pockets

Image
So last night before it got dark I took Noah to his favorite pathway when I realized how cold it was getting and looked at Noah's little pockets on his jacket ,

I thought how silly that was but it still made me sad for a minute. Something so simple like unused pockets. It dawned on me that Noah's pockets have never been used.   Never really thought about The fact that Noah's never seen or used a pocket. Seemed so silly to think about. Then I approached the corner and saw this sunset. At that moment pockets did not seem so important. And the cold didn't feel so bitter.

Broken femur and blended diet

Image
Noah suffered a femur break last week and we were discouraged to find the Dr had no solution to helping his brittle bone. After asking repeatedly for test and vitamin d supplements we were denied. So we decided on a holistic Dr and a blended food diet for boron and more supplements

Noah is resting after a long day

Image
This day was filled with such defeat.  Noah finally fell asleep around 4am after excruciating pain from his right leg We are praying for no surgery but it's not looking hopeful. We do not have a cause to the collapsed femur

Broken Femur

Image
Noah has always been a strong little boy, so of course seeing him with a pained look today made me call his dr right away to question if this was due to his dislocated hip. His Dr insisted it should wait and I should give him Motrin
 Around 9:30 pm I looked at his knee and noticed it was bulging out. I immediately called 911.
 5 hours later we have found due to his brittle bones his femur has literally caved inward and in most cases like these they would require rodding but due to Noah's small bones and brittle bones we are unsure what is going to happen at this point.
 He is in a lot of pain and is resting at home now with Morphine awaiting his dr appointment in the morning.
 I have shed many tears throughout this year. This year has been filled with many ups and downs. His personality has become a driving force in the house and his communication has begun to amaze me. But these hardships have become such a hard thing to sleep through at night.
 I worry about his life. I know He …

Noahs new bed

Noah's new bed arrived and at first he was very reluctant. However after playing elevator on it a few times and attaching  his iPad he is Happy as can be. It is just enough room for my bed in my room and his since he has never slept in his own room since his seizures began in 2003  even though he hasn't had another seizure since 2009 I like to keep a close eye. As mother's do
