in the vacation posting to ask for a few good thoughts for my Avery. Poor guy. He’s been a little anxious about starting back to school. The last few weeks have been tough on the bedtime schedule. Him not wanting to go to sleep because he ‘thinks’ he might ‘have a nightmare.’ We’ve been talking to him a lot about the start of school and how much he loves school, but as soon as the lights go out, he wigs out a little.
Yesterday, though…things got a little worse. Without going into too much detail, he completely wigged out in Target while we were shopping for school supplies. We were in there for 30 minutes and came out without any supplies. I decided it was time to call his pediatrician to see what we should do. After I left a message at the doctor’s office, Avery came into the kitchen to tell me that he felt like he couldn’t breathe. Oh how my heart hurt. I calmed him down and got him interested in a movie to take his mind off of things. The nurse called back and we had a little chat. She talked to the doctor and called me back with the number to Behavioral Health.
I called them this morning and we have an appointment for Avery on Friday. Please send us any good thoughts you have. And if you have any ideas how to *deal* until Friday, I would be so grateful. Thanks and hugs to you all.
