We had Sammy's Psychiatrist appointment yesterday and there is a lot of stuff going on with our little guy. First of all he does have Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD). Secondly he takes in maybe 1/3 of onfo presented to him at any time. He said that he does not imprint things on his brain and that sometimes all of the info sticks in his brain and other times it goes right through. He is consitantly inconsistant. We are worried about school and what he will get out of it. He is really happy that we are doing speech and working with using speech and appropriate social skills. He said that is one of the best things we can be doing. He talked about that Sammy has what he likes to call "sleepy brain" Bascially, Sammy's brain does not produce enough beta waves and one other. He is not addressing that right at the moment because we have our Neuro appointment on the 25th and will be requesting a 23 hr EEG to make sure that the seizures have indeed stopped. If they have, then the dr will go from there and deal with the "sleepy Brain" If they havent then we will do whatever needs to be done. He also showed me ways to deal with Sammy when he is violent with me (all of the time) seeing as he is getting way too big for me to physically deal with. He told me that for now, Sammy and I dont go places alone together because he is not listening to me. It is something that is being worked on but will take quite a while. He told me not to feel guilty as it is not my fault or anything that I have done. Lastly, he put Sammy on Resperdol for behavior and to help organize his thoughts. Hopefully it will work. Last night was his first dose and I was fully expecting him to be so tired today and not even wake up until late but he was up at regular time and a very busy little man so I am happy about that! So, my brain is spinning with all of this information. I am sad about it all and I am sad and jealous about my relationship with my son.
