Sorry Haven't Posted in a Bit

I'm sorry I haven't posted in a bit. Had to bring Cody to 4 dr appts last week. The first one was to meet his new therapist. He really needs someone to help him deal with his issues. We really like her, she does art and music therapy with children.

His second dr's visit was with an audiologist. We found out he has significant hearing loss in one ear. The social worker from school met with us at the doctor's office so she and I discussed some amendments to his program at school.

His third appt with with a dentist Friday. When he was with me last time, we found out he had 9 cavities. I only had time to bring him to get two filled before he went home with his mother so I was dreading finding out what is up with his teeth this time. So, they xray'd him and found that the ones with cavities had fallen out (mostly baby teeth) and he only had three cavities in the beginning stages. Dentist put sealant on his good teeth, sent him home with an appt to go in the next day (Sat) to do the fillings.

So we get there and Cody immediately starts to panic when they put the gas mask on him. He is freaking out so we finally calm him down and they start drilling. Cody is making this "aw, aw, aw" sounds the whole time. So when the dentist finally finishes drilling the first tooth he gets ready to fill and and WHOOSH! Projectile vomiting of Frosted Flakes EVERYWHERE! I was lucky, I was in the corner. And yes I did laugh because the nurse freaked but the dentist just laughed (with vomit all over himself) and we sat Cody up. Cleaned him up, the dentist filled the tooth and has rescheduled him for a 2nd appt to get the other 2 teeth after Cody cried and threw a fit. :::sigh::: I know now how frustrated moms get.

Anywho, Cody goes to his first real therapy appt tonight. I am hoping he discusses his mom and we start getting things down on record. I am so sick of her "me me me" attitude and her "i never do anything wrong, it's everyone elses fault" drama. Please let Cody go in there and tell his therapist all the things that he's been telling us.

That is all, I am spent!


  1. I hope the truth comes out in his therapy, if he can be told and understand that his mother is not normal and the way she's raised him isn't normal, it'll be much easier for him to grow his own kind of man, instead of letting her inadequacies and failures bring him down. Good for you for getting him in there.
    Maybe the therapist will be able to get documentation of his experiences with her and soon we won't have to worry about her and her negative influence on not just him but the entire family anymore.

  2. I hope it works for him. I know what you mean about the dentist. We had to knock my little one out when she got a cavity last year. I went to four different dentists hoping to find someone to give her a shot without it hurting....that didn't
    Hoping your next week is less stressful

  3. What a day for you and him.... One day at a time!!!
