Hey my Swirly peeps. 🙂
I just wanted to pop in here and let you know that I am taking a small leave of absence for the summer. I will be around occasionally but I have a couple of sweet, little, boys that need their mama's attention for a bit.
Without going into incredible detail, since January my two little guys have been undergoing different forms of therapy and medical screenings. Both have been diagnosed with sensory processing disorder, but it has manifested itself in different ways for each of them. My oldest has food aversion, which we are working through and he has made incredible progress, and my youngest has auditory issues. In addition, my youngest is in physical therapy because he is unable to crawl, walk, or even sit himself up. They have ruled out cerebral palsy and muscular disorders at this point, but some other blood work came back highly elevated and they are continuing testing.
I'm just going to be doing the Mama thing for now, Krissy and Lisa have been incredible and offered me a leave for a couple months, and I am blessed that most of my other DT terms are ending June 1st as well so that I can focus everything I got on my boys until we have some more answers or at least get into the groove of how we can best be helping them.
I love being a Swirly girl and am not going anywhere permanently. I just didn't want you all to think that I just vanished on ya. 🙂 )
