We just our neuro appointment yesterday and 3 psychiatrist appts the past couple of weeks. A lot of the talk is about Sammy's ability to learn. Apparently the seizures have caused some good amount of damage in his little brain and then add the Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) to that. We are trying to schedule a 23 hour EEG to make sure that the seizures have actually stopped but because of hurricane Ike, everything is backed up so we are on the waitlist. The thing that makes me so sad is that socially, sammy has a lot of anxiety and doesnt know what to do. It is something that is being worked on by a specialist in the school so she can help give him the proper skills and confidence to be social. He is at the age where kids notice differences and can be cruel. he is so innocent and doesnt understand why someone wouldnt want to play with him. It truely breaks my heart. Also once he gets into school it is going to be difficult and nobody wants that for their child. His behavior is horrid at home more and more Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) traits are coming out. he seems to be getting worse not better. We are going to try clonidine for his behavior and hyperactivity. He didnt respond well to the antisphychotic medications so we are trying something different. I am so tired, frustrated and just plain sad!
