Sorry to keep everyone waiting, but it has been a long day. We are now all up at the lake for a peaceful weekend.

So, what happened with Dr. E today? For starters ,we've been blessed to hear that it is NOT neurological!!! Dr. E believes that it is a form of sensory processing disorder. Which means that she will have to undergo intense behavioral therapy to control the rocking, head banging, running, jumping, flapping her hands, hard to control, behavior.

At one point, I thought I was going to slap the man silly. After showing him the video of Carson rocking, he says to me," you allow her to rock like that all night long?" Yes, I do, because I am a mother of 2 sets of twins (ages 3 and 6) and can not SLEEP all day long after being up all night trying to stop Carson from rocking. Good Gravy. I guess I know what I'll be doing on those nights I can't get my brain to slow down enough for me to sleep!!

So, this is where we sit for the moment until she is evaluated by the behavioral therapist.
At least it is a direction to move in. It's a start and it is all I can ask for at this point.

Glad to hear that the appointment went well and for some positive news! Enjoy the weekend at the lake. We are stuck indoors today with a raging snow storm outside. Guess it's a good time to clean!
