june, so far

Believe it or not, we are still in the process of figuring out his medication. The specific brand that was recommended to us, is not available in the liquid form in the extended release. Although the capsule can be opened & mixed in with something, there is nothing that Hayden will ever eat or drink on command. (Unless possibly we could conjure up some medicated munchkins.)

The pediatrician has now suggested a different medicine with the same, or similar, active ingredient. It is available in patch form so I am hoping with all hope that this works.
To Be Continued...

In other news, Hayden had his camp visit over the weekend. I am not sure he fully understands that he will be spending his day there, and the fact that it's not until near the end of the summer could be confusing. However we wanted to begin introducing him to the place, and wanted to make sure that his babysitter/ soon-to-be shadow counselor was there as well. So at least he would associate that with a place where she is and have that familiar face. She actually missed part of her prom weekend because she was there for training that day. I feel as bad as I do grateful.

We return for camper orientation at the end of the month. It's going to be busy with a lot of campers and siblings and parents, and the director even went so far as to use the word "chaotic". But we do want him to see the camp with kids having fun there.

In the meantime, in other news, the behaviorist came for a consult yesterday evening with his K teacher. As part of Hayden's summer program, we will have two visits a week for a behavioral consultation to help with such skills as carrying over toileting success at home. They visited for an hour and a half and we had the opportunity to discuss all of the challenges as of late, and see how we might be able to help Hayden focus, and make decisions, and so forth. In general, any technique to sort of counteract the disorganization.

And of course he complied with sitting on the toilet TWICE while they were here, with one success.

I can do nothing but shake my head.
