Update on Nate

The EEG was normal! Yeah I'm so relieved! It took them till yesturday to tell us but alas late (good) news is better than not! So thank you so much to all of you who prayed, thought, and said nice things to us. We are doing so much better these days with him, and we're just trying to make life smooth here, with everything going on outside of our house (bullies, hard time with dad being at war, his fear of having to leave another "home" behind, hard time with school...so forth) I'm just really trying my darndest to have love and peace in our home. (for example the post of "scream free parenting") He still pushes buttons farther than any other 8 year old I know, but then again those other 8 year olds arnt mine, and they probably don't have ADHD, but I'm working on myself as a mother, a single mother, and I'm trying to be at peace with myself too, I can't make everything perfect, and there's no way that I will try, there's just things in his life that are part of his journey back to his Heavenly Father, but having an crabby mom, who isn't going to try will not be one of his burdens. So I am looking forward, looking up for help, and getting down on my knees to do it. And that's all I'm really going to be concerned about for a while, everything else will take a # and I'll be able to add more at times, and am learning to let go of things too. Now if you excuse me I have to go be a ref between the other two boys wrestling and fighting in the bath tub over who has more "room" in there! :)
