The Puzzle Boy Goes to the Black Hills of South Dakota! Part II

Through the storm we drove, then out of the storm we drove, then and hour later, in to a motel we went.  Time to get some restful sleep for the night for tomorrow will be more adventures! What?  Did I say a restful night?  I don't think that happened!  Just as I was drifting into "never, never land," we heard some male voices at our door.  They were trying to slip their key card in our door!  Hubby to the rescue! "This room is occupied!" he hollered out at 10:30pm.

The Puzzle Boy Goes to the Black Hills of South Dakota!

South Dakota. What does that conjure up in your mind? Hmmm, in my mind, I think of flat!  Maybe sunflowers and gorgeous puffy white clouds that hang sorta low and make big shadows over the ground.  How about Mitchell Corn Palace and Wall Drug??!! Oh, yeah! Wall Drug!  Did you know that was the name of the town? Wall.  Interesting.  Oh, maybe you think of Custer's last stand or Indians.  Ok, we are getting closer.  How about Mount Rushmore, Black Hills and Custer State Park?

Yet Another Incredibly Sad Autism Story

 

Here is the story of a precious boy named Ryan.  Seth came and saw his picture and said "This is me, right?"

I told him, no, it was not.  However, I am amazed at how similar in looks these two boys are!  Also, they are similar

in disposition as Seth is a very spiritual boy also! My heart and my prayers go out incredibly deep to the Barret Family of New York!      

 

Oh No! Where'd His Tooth Go? Part II Living with Autism

As I ended Part I, I told you that the dentist office was very friendly. Well, indeed it was! I think it was the nicest one I had ever been to! The courtesy shown to Seth was outstanding! I had mentioned to them that Seth reacted terribly to regular novacaine. I believe it was to the Lidocaine in it. (Do I sound ignorant yet?) As you may have remembered from a previous posting, he ended up with about 6 weeks of seizures after a different dental appointment for a filling.

Oh No! Where'd His Tooth Go? Part I Living With Autism

After driving for two hours to get to Springfield for Seth's neurology appointment, and doing a bit of shopping, we were hungry and ready to eat. Into our favorite fast food restaurant we went. Panera Bread. Notice I said fast food, not junk food! Panera is one of the best places a person could eat out quickly. I ordered our favorites, Mediterranean sandwich and Garden Vegetable soup with a salad, hunk of sourdough bread and chips. As I was quietly eating, taking in my surroundings, I looked up and imagined I saw an empty place in Seth's mouth. An area that appeared dark.

New Theory of Autism Suggests Symptoms or Disorder May Be Reversible

I found this to be quite intriguing as I had noticed the same thing. I also noticed when Seth was young that he did real well when fasting. Seth also does not have seizures when he is sick, has a cold, or has had a broken bone. I would agree with this article except for the part that says this happens to the children of woman who lived through a bad storm such as a cyclone! I just get a "kick" out of some "scientific" minds. I never went through a major storm while pregnant for Seth. Did this happen to anyone else out there???

Normal in Relationship to Autism

This book written by a young girl, Smantha Mcleaod, expresses my sentiments and what I have shared in previous blogs, exactly! I think it would be a book worth reading!

Cary, N.C. — A book written by a middle school student is getting attention for its look at autism through a child's eyes.

Samantha McLeod, of Cary, wrote "Normal" based on her experience trying to change her younger brother Tyler, who has autism, into a normal child.

Waves of Autism

Have you ever noticed that your Autistic child will have good days and bad days? It is like the waves and tides of an ocean. There are high times and low times. Stormy times and calm times. Days where you feel you have it "all together" and times when it seems like everything you accomplished just fell apart!. Those are dismal days for sure! I have been contemplating such events. Where do they come from, why is it so? Guess what? I think it is more complicated than we can even imagine!

The Puzzle Boys New Adventures for 2009! Autism Has a Right!

Have you ever noticed that Autism changes? It has many faces. Each day is new. You may gain some ground, then you may lose that ground. You have no idea why. It just happens. A few years down the road, you can look back and say, hey, even though we took steps backward, somehow we have gained ground! Nothing is stagnant, things change, move, grow. That is how it is with our kids. I am thankful for that!

There is Always Hope When it Comes to Autism

Here is a story that will melt your heart. It is not written by me. I do not know the name of the person that wrote it, but I knew that you would enjoy this heartwrenching, heartwarming story. Read on...
