Today is World Down Syndrome Day. It’s on 3/21 because Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome) means that a person has 3 copies of the 21st chromosome and not the typical two. Much love to all the fantastic mom’s and beautiful mom’s I have met, all because of one extra chromosome.
Behavior issues revisited. Emily’s behaviors have become somewhat worse. We are having real problems with her: listening, teeth grinding and the dumping, ohhhhh the dumping its back bigger and badder than ever. I thought we were going to get some relief in the form of medication but my pediatrician is hesitant to do that. If we could just have SOME thing to help with her impulsivity, it’s so frustrating, not knowing which way to turn with it all.
