Max can tell me when he is hurting!
Yesterday I took him to the doctor.
Max looks at the doctor with a plea for help. "I woke my mom up at three because my right ear hurt."
The doctor was shocked that Max was able to communicate this to him. Max has been his patient since birth.
Found out Max has pink eye and a horrible ear infection.
LOOKS like we have graduated from me trying to find out what is brothering Max. To Max being able to tell me what hurts. Yay! Last night he was edgy walking in circles in front of the TV. I asked him if he was okay. He responded, "My body is upset Mom." I was concerned with how to help to him calm down. I gave him a hug and said, "How about a bath. I can pour warm water on your back." He looked at me with his pink eyes and gave a faint smile.
After about an hour in the bath he calm down and wanted to watch Bonanza. "Mom you have to stay with me. I need you with me." I sat next to his bed until he drifted off to sleep. Today he is having a hard time with the eye drops and he fights me with placing his hands over his eyes, just like he did when he was little. The years I spent daily rolling him up in blanket to give him medication have come back in full force.
