It is usually an interesting experience every Monday night staying in a hotel with the boys. To much surprise, it is Andrew that has the more difficult time. We have been rather lucky that Trenton has handled the hotel stay fairly well. We have a certain routine when I pick them up from Harsha. We follow that routine til the next morning when they go to Harsha and Trenton does fairly well. Andrew usually brings a new problem each Monday night. This past Monday night, I am surprised that he didn't get us kicked out of the hotel.....I am just waiting for the time that we do get a call from the front desk asking what in the world is going on in our room.
Lately, Andrew can not control his anger when he gets angry. He has formed a bad habit of letting out blood curdling screams. When Andrew does this, you can see the adrenaline and pure anger in his whole body. Before you can do anything, he takes both hands and attacks Trenton.....which is not a good thing....Trenton then retaliates or he goes into complete meltdown and it's a long time before anyone stops screaming and crying.
With that said, Andrew screamed and screamed the majority of Monday evening. Between that and Trenton running around the room letting everything out of his system , we were nothing but quiet. Therefore, I am just waiting for the day with a knock on the door......
When Andrew finally quit screaming and settled down, he looked cute in his hotel bed.
Silly boys making hats out of deflated balls at Harsha.
We had OT and ST today. I want to share what Andrew did in OT today.
The top line is hand over hand with his therapist, Jodi. The bottom line, which I got wet, was mostly done with a verbal cue. GOOD JOB ANDREW!!!
My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing .
