This week has been good for the most part. Monday, we delayed Noah's dosing of Hep B 200c because he cried the ENTIRE day. He was just really on edge and everything set him off. I gave him Bach's Rescue Remedy for Kids and then... instant calm! It was amazing. I will definitely be using this going forward when we have irritability during clearings. (The adult version of Rescue Remedy is also awesome! I have some sitting at my desk when I have a particularly stressful day! LOVE IT)
So, Tuesday, since he was doing much better, we gave the 200c dose of Hep B. He hasn't had many severe reactions to it--- still had a bit of insomnia, and I noticed some old stimming return (shaking his head left to right- a stim that started around 9 months), he has also been a little unsteady on his feet (which we saw at 15 months). A few detox looking diapers and a rash on his lower calf.
The gains we have seen this week are specifically related to his receptive language- what Noah understands. In previous posts I mentioned that when he was assessed at the beginning of the year they determined his receptive language was around 6 months old! I don't know what it is now, but it has definitely gotten much better. He is starting to understand things I am saying to him which is awesome. This has been an area of struggle for us. He is now starting to come to us when his name is called. I also noticed when I mentioned to him "lets go upstairs" he ran straight to the stairs and when I mentioned "lets put your shoes and socks on" he ran to where they were. So it is getting better!
I will continue to post regular updates as we continue on our journey of recovering our son with CEASE therapy!
