One Of Those Days
It’s going to be just one of those days. I don’t blog much about my son’s day-to-day life. He has more good days than bad…by far. But once in a while, life takes a little nose dive. Out of respect for Max, I will not give details, but yesterday was rough. Today, his regular staff is sick with a bad cold, (hope I did not give it to her), so instead of having a substitute staff, which is always stressful at the best of times for Max, I have decided to give him a mental health day off. A day off from staff, a day off from work.
When he has a really bad day like yesterday, one of two things are usually the cause. Either he is starting a bad cycle or he is coming down with an illness. I feel I need to spend the whole day with him and get a grasp on what is going on. Which means my plans for the day might change.
Bailey and I were going to Salem later this morning to have our rings cleaned and inspected. It is needed to maintain our insurance on them. I also need to pick up barium for scans I am having next week. Not sure if we will still go today. It depends on whether Max and I feel it is o.k. for him to go with us. I also would like to do something fun with Max. Nothing big, just go to the park, or go to a couple antique shops…….something he enjoys and low-key.
I guess it is fitting today that I spend time with Max anyway. It is World Autism Awareness Day.
