Adventures With Autism and Adopting a Healthier Lifestyle

I’m sorry it’s been so long. We’ve been going through the process of getting Emily placed in school. She started this week! Yay!!

She missed Monday due to a horrid cough, which we went to her doctor about. Turned out to be Croup!

Sheesh.

So, now she’s on steroids for a few days. Bless her doctor and the pharmacy staff – they went to great lengths to find a med without colors/dyes in it. Beautiful.

On a related note: I’ve officially listed artificial colors as an allergy on her medical records, so as to avoid exposure. Using the word “allergy” is the only way to make people take you seriously. “They make her nuts and violent” will only lead to mommy being ignored. Believe me, I know from experience.

She is making progress with the cough. Indeed, enough to make it to school after one dose. It’s still bad in her sleep, but her doc said that’s to be expected.
