Thank you to our family for the movie night!! Was stoked to come home to this package!!

These two sure did miss each other!

I swear I did not teach my child to be this way!! "Do not skate the sidewalk. The cops are stupid ugly brats. And psycho. They are putting kids in jail. On nothing. They are fatties and grumpy." Warning. Danger. -Sasha

Oh this pup... we learned yesterday that Duke is mostly GSD but has some Husky in him... explains a LOT!! His strength is incredible to be so small, he's nearly pulled me to the ground when he sees a squirrel... the best news yesterday was when #DogWish.org said that Duke was a good pup & they would certainly be able to train him as Sasha's #ServiceDog Our expected time to get little guy back is late March'ish. I've been asked a ton "why get a service dog if Sasha is 'high functioning'"? Dogwish.org explains why these special trained pups are so impactful to children with #Autism and #Aspergers no matter what the functioning level is. The pup is trained specifically for your child's needs to read the child's energies. The pup uses hand commands instead of verbal commands which is SO important bc many of "our" kids either can't speak, have limited language, or if they are verbal they will always struggle with finding the right words to express their needs. I'm not 100% confident that Sasha will continue to progress into an independent adult one day. When we received his diagnosis I wrote a letter to myself and sealed it up. It was my commitment as a mother to give this child every opportunity to grow, learn, and excel no matter what the conditions of our lives were or no matter what the cost. It will be provided for him. It also said this sweet boy may depend on me for the rest of his life but I was promising to do my best to help he be as independent as possible even if that meant living at home forever & holding down a simple job as sweeping the floors at a grocery store... that was fine by me. I never imagined that Sasha would be where he is today, I'm so proud of him! I pray that this pup gives him confidence, security, safety, and friendship to make his life easier... especially as we enter the pre-teen middle school age years, some of the hardest years for Sasha will be the next few... Duke will get him through it!

Sometimes we fall face first into a metal ramp but what defines us is if we get back up & try again... #lifelessonsthroughkids

for the kid who has had birthday parties in hotel lobbies & says he doesn't need anything for his birthday other than a ticket to a concert... I found this gem to wake him up with tomorrow.

Love

Update on back surgery: it's been 2 weeks & I've literally stayed in bed other than getting out for a bit 2-3 times. Did my part... Ready to start psychical therapy... then this knot pops up at the top area of where the incision was. Same as always, allergic reaction to the internal stitches. It took 2 surgeries after open heart surgery to clean out where the internal stitches never dissolved.... Lord help me if this ends up having to be the same thing eventually! The knot isn't going away & probably won't if the stitches do not dissolve. I've had so many surgeries & not once have they ever dissolved so here to hoping! :)

Critical Dr visit for -Ben

Dinner. & yes, I still have pajamas from 7th grade... Separation issues...

Yep.

Loved being Beach bums... can't wait for this summer to start!

Watched my face change over the course of 2 days on a morphine pump... cleared up within a day of being off but sheesh!

Sasha has never mooted more like me than he does here... can't wait to see my little stinkers tomorrow!!
