What a difference a week makes! J-Man has gotten into his medicine groove with the fish oil! This has been the ritual with everything else he’s taken in the past – several days of karate and fighting it and then a grim acceptance. He never likes it, but makes his peace with it. Of course, none of his other medicine smelled like a fish camp.
So it looks like that part of the equation is good for the duration. I can’t say as we’ve seen any major improvements, though it does seem that his eye contact and interaction are getting better. As Mary says in the above post, we may be seeing a trend toward improved communication!
Again, this is by no means a scientific report and we don’t have any foolproof method of charting his progress. We don’t have any standard by which to measure what ‘success’ means here either. I guess we’ll just know it when we see it.
For me, “I love you, Daddy” will be more than enough.
