Good week, so far

I see this in so many of our blogs; we have had a good week, but I feel like I should knock on wood. Akila has had 3 really good days in a row, and also had a great morning. I absolutely love it! It is so funny, as I could sit back and experience what it is like to have a family where there are not constant meltdowns, and issues, but instead, I am walking on egg shells trying to do everything I can to make it last as long as possible. It is like I'm desperate. But after a long stretch of "crappy" behavior, you do get desperate.

I know it won't last much longer, and for those of you who think I'm being a pessimist and should expect it to last forever, I say "Get a life!" That is not how it works in the world of FASD. Sure, God could provide a miracle, and I pray for help and guidance daily, but I am also realistic. I have also accepted Akila and her brain. I am quite thankful for these 3 1/2 good days, and I'm going to ride them out as long as I can. There is no school tomorrow, that will be the test. We will stay active and get out of the house a lot. Keep your fingers crossed!!

I hope you have a good day off from school and outside the house.

I could hug you - I feel the same. I pray that you get to continue and have a good weekend.
Everytime I start getting optimistic, something awful happens. I'm very cautious of being too happy with how things are. We've had a good Tuesday-Thursday, so I'm expecting a bad report from today. I know that's bad, but I can't help it.
