It's Official

Mason was officially diagnosed with "Classic Autism" on Monday by a child psychiatrist. We are now putting him on the wait list for the medicaid waiver which will release $25,000 in additional therapies (about 8 hours of the needed 24 hours per week). It's a start. It's one little battle won.


Oh, by the way. As if all the craziness with the design team for Scrap N' Art, the new puppy (oy vey!), and Mason wasn't enough. We've decided to sell our house and get a bigger one. I am flat EXHAUSTED from scrubbing, painting, fixing, running, scrapping, chasing puppies, being bitten everytime I flippin' BREATHE! But.. it'll be worth it when we get into a little bigger place! (I hope!)

This little chicky is going to bed now. G'nite

(errr G'morning/G'Day to YOU Helen!) LOL

And here we're all thinking that the puppy ate you... sheesh girl! Take a break!

Good luck with selling the house and everything else you've got going on :)

I was wondering if things were okay and if the puppy had eaten you out of house and home yet...
I am sorry about Mason's diagnosis..I know we were all hoping it was going to be good news. I'm praying that you receive the funds for the therapy. Stay strong ma'am...
So is the bigger house for you all or for the puppy? lol...he'll need it before he is done growing!! Remember to breath every now and again!! I miss you and I am so glad you blogged, was truly getting ready to email...Get rested up and good luck selling the house!!

Well, glad you finally got an "official" diagnosis, and so thrilled that Mason will receive the extra therapy!!!!! He will be just fine. And, I feel your PAIN with the house and puppy!!!!!!!! Been there, done that. Like I said, if it weren't for the stress of showing a house....I would be living somewhere else!!!!!! But, you DO need a pantry and a bathroom that is your VERY OWN!!!! Other than those two things, I really hate to see you guys move. Good luck!!!!! Oh, and I will give my garage code as soon as I find out what it is...maybe tonight?

Hi again,
Well, it's been a tough road for you, but at least now Mason will get the assistance he so deserves!
You know where to find me if/when you need to vent...
Love your new puppy...cute shots of him in the snow!
Good luck maintaining your sanity while showing the house, and looking for a new one ~ Sure wish I lived closer so I can help!
HUGS to you,
Barb
