When all your hopes and dreams change

It was November 30th 2001 my sons due date when I actually went into labour with him, the labour was only short and I was home the next morning with my baby boy. My daughter was almost 21 months old when her baby brother was born so life was hectic for a while, little did we know how hectic our lives would become. I guess in a way I’ve always known Thomas was not like his sister but it was when he was around 6 months old that he stopped breathing whilst sitting in his pram it appeared like he had chocked on saliva. He was admitted to hospital and discharged a few days later armed with inhalers and instruction to give him it every 4 hours and I will receive an appointment for a follow up, fast forward 6 weeks and his check up came the Dr's was not worried about him having the episode of not breathing but was highly concerned about his muscle tone or rather the lack of it. The penny dropped he confirmed to me what I had been telling the health visitors all along yet been fobbed off with “he will get there “ “boys are slower than girls”. Life then because one hospital appointment after another with blood test, bone age x-rays, more blood test, examinations then can the diagnosis GLOBAL DELAY. Life then was filled with checkups and therapy sessions. 

            So once I had come to terms with having a child with special need my life slowly became just normal to me because I got use to it I went on to have another daughter who fitted in great but it was like having 2 babies because Thomas was so delayed, then I became a single parent it was hard work the hardest I’ve ever done but was so so rewarding so we just plodded along for a few years then  In 2007 I moved to Wales to be with my husband and the whole hospital appointments started up again because Thomas was not progressing as he should so his school Dr ordered test from what felt like every specialist going, I am so thankful that he did so at the end of 2009 beginning of 2010 Thomas was diagnosed with ADHD to me I think I did the whole denial thing because I always thought the child had to be wild for them to have ADHD and Thomas was not yes he was very hyper but we could control him in a sense. The conversation of the dreaded medication come up which made me feel sick to the pit of my stomach. I told them I didn’t want him not to be him so they came up with Medikinet XL10mg it’s a slow release medication that we give him 1 hour before school so it starts to work for the start of school and will wear off just at the end of school time, the 1st time I picked up the prescription from the chemist was awful because I had to provide identification and the tablets came out of the safe this alone made me not want to let him swallow that tablet but I knew I had to do it for him to be able to concentrate better in school. I am glad I did his school work as come on  loads and he can finally sit and do a little task well sort off we still have the odd day when he refuses to do anything that was not his idea. Since we moved to Wales we have added another 2 children to our ever growing family so life is hectic, I love every second of it.
