Happy Saturday 😊
Yesterday was Chloe’s 9 year checkup. I didn’t tell her until we got there because she gets super anxious. Once we arrived she started saying “No shots, No throat, No Ears”!!! I was like “Oh boy here we go”.
I was very shocked by her weigh in. I knew she had gained some weight, but she was off the charts for height and weight. So deleting most of the carbs that are not healthy for her, like cracker type snacks. She is only an inch away from being as tall as I am, at 9 years old😲
She was very nervous when her Dr came in and started having verbal tics. The Dr is good with Chloe. She doesnt rush her at all. Chloe’s anxiety was so bad she couldn’t answer the Drs questions. I talked to the Dr about Chloe’s massive OCD and anxiety issues. She decided it was time for anxiety medication. I agreed and we moved on to other areas of concern.
Next was therapies and education. I have been doing Chloe’s therapy and schooling for 2 1/2 years. I have reached a point with her therapy that i know she needs more. Schooling is an area that I am struggling with. Dr wants me to put her back in school. I know this will be hard for Chloe. I want her to have friends and not be scared of kids. I have a lot to think about.
So new medication, better diet, possibly school and research therapy needs. Yikes! It will all work out.
Thanks for stopping by and have an awesome weekend😊
