One step forward, two steps back

It seems like the next shoe is going to drop any minute now so to speak. We have been doing so well, JM has adjusted to school well and loves his teachers and class mates. He even claims to have a girlfriend. Things are going well. He is not getting in trouble and is learning. Our parent teacher conference went great.

Well today was a conference with his OT (private OT) counselor at school, School OT and School ST. I had one shocker. Do not get me wrong I honestly expected one of them to have another diagnosis, I just honestly hoped and prayed that it was not JM. He has so much stacked against him as it is. So now my sweet boy has been diagnosed with Dyslexia, his run down now includes. SPD (sensory avoider and Seeker at times), Aspergers, PPD NOS, and now Dyslexia. We are going to also be doing blood work to test for Fragile X as well.

It is funny, when they were born Douglas had several cyst on his brain, the doctors told me to expect him to have problems in school. That chances were he would be main streamed but he would not be my straight A student and may struggle with some things, spelling, math etc. So far he excels in everything and my sweet little man has a more difficult time. I am at a point that I dread going to the doctor with him as I wonder what they will diagnose him with next.

I love my little man so much and just want him to not have to struggle so much with everything.

I am sure most of you understand that..
