helping max find the calm.

Today was day 2 of Max staying at home in the morning instead of going to daycare. While yesterday was tough (Max got up at 4:30am and was all over the place emotionally and behaviourally), today was much better. Max slept until 6:30am and seemed to like being home. He even rediscovered some of his favourite books and we didn't see the outbursts that have become part of his repertoire. Reports from his therapists were positive this afternoon as well. Max is participating in a music therapy camp this week, which is a nice break from his intensive therapy. He has a therapist with him to support him, but it is good to change up his schedule and give him opportunities to try new things.

Personally, I am finding myself exhausted both emotionally and physically (I'm sure Scott is feeling run a bit ragged too). There have been a lot of changes for us to manage lately, and we are all doing our best to get comfortable with new schedules, roles and most of all, just trying to support each other the best we can. While I'd never ask time to speed up or slow down, I am looking forward to life settling into some sort of groove where we can operate in more of a comfort zone, at least for a bit. I think we're doing all the right things to get there and it is just a matter of time and keeping at it. Now I just need to figure out how to squeeze a few more hours into the day so I can get my work done!
