Rough Few Days

It's been very rough the past few days. The total amount of sleep Trenton and I have received the past three nights does not add up to what one person should get in one night. It has been extremely horrible! Just like every other book I have read about a family raising a child with autism that is effected like Trenton, the bad sleep pattern always comes back. There is no sitting back and watching him play in the night. He is either running and doing laps in our house making his noises or he is fussy and crying. Last night he fussed and cried for 5 1/2 hours until  his body finally let him go to sleep around 4 AM. Unfortunately, his body won't let him rest and he is up for the day at 6:30 AM. I was EXTREMELY jealous of Tim and Andrew that were sleeping soundly.  To top it off, he has developed a bad cough today.  It's bad enough to have a healthy Trenton who does not sleep.  When Trenton is sick and doesn't sleep, it's a person's living nightmare! And it's the week of Christmas. Joy to the World......UGH!

A few pictures of his most famous lines the past week.
