Lizzy has been having a great day. She woke up at 6:30 a.m. in a very good mood. “Why Sure” got up with her and she has been very content. Her appetite is good, and no exteriorizations.
Her new Scooby figures have been with her constantly. She even took them to bed with her.
These figures were designed in several pieces. They come apart very easily. I was expecting a major meltdown. Nope, she just asked for “Help”.
At 2:30 p.m. her little bro Mattie was not getting his way. He started to whine and Lizzy hugged him. That didn’t do anything, so she tried to bang her head on the hardwood floor. I stopped her before she started and comforted her. Successful diffusion.
Seems we are starting to have some reactions to the CCC. It has been approximately 26 hours. Have to wait and see.
Dori Vallis responded by email and confirmed that we need to wait and see what happens.
Guess I should turn our 15 passenger van into the mystery machine. We are all turning in to quite the detectives over here.
Homeopathy and autism are things that require constant observation and investigation. And that’s what we do.
Everyone in the house contributes to the cause. We all share ideas and observations. We have meetings about what needs or could be done to improve the way things are going. It is not just about Lizzy, it is about all of us.
People often ask me how do you do all of this stuff? I don’t. We do!
This has been a great learning experience for all of us. Yes, it can be painful and difficult. When is growth not painful or difficult. We all can relate to this, no matter what the age.
So as of 5 pm Lizzy is doing fine. One can tell that she is different from the morning, but it is not bad. She ate dinner and had a bath.
Amelia helped give her a bath since I am much slower than usual today. Fatigue is catching up with me.
At 7:30 p.m. Lizzy is fine. She has been pushing on her lower abdomen a little and also burping more. She read approximately 85 flash cards that we have made for her. Her clarity of speech has improved greatly. Soon we will be adding sound and film to the site so everyone can see for themselves.
Nouns are slowly added to adjectives, then come verbs and adverbs. Finally we will be at full sentences. It has been very successful to date. Let’s see where she leads us, next.
Using the closed caption setting with her favorite shows helps tremendously. She knows all of the phonetic sounds. Her decoding skills are pretty good, we need to do them more often.
One instance of her plugging in information happened while watching Andy Griffith. The characters were in the barber shop and she said “Salon”. I was very excited!!
So the more we do, the better she feels, the closer we get to our goal. Having our Lizzy Gal reach her full potential.
Well that’s it for today. God willing we will have a peaceful night. Sweet Dreams to all.
