Medication

Took Jaleel and Makkiah to their doctors appts today.

Jaleel will be starting in medication for ADHD so that he can function better at school.

We had to get his hearing, vision and learning ability tested before the ped would consider meds.

He sees fine, hears fine and has average to abov average intelligence. So all that looks good.

Now he just needs to be able to sit down long enough to listen and learn.

The pharmacy was out of the medication so I won't be able to pick it up until next week but at least we have a light at the end of the tunnel.

Makkiah is going to get his hearing tested since he already got his vision tested and he also had a consult put in for a child psychiatrist to evaluate him.

He's been having a hard time at school as well but his is more aggression. The ped says that he is more vulnerable due to his chronic medical problems and medication.

He needs to be able to function at school and the other kids need to be able to be safe at school.

I hate to add more medication to the ones that he already takes but that may be the only solution.

Life is so fun at our house sometimes!
