    You called me Dude :) ... And Parent teacher conference


    Tonight, I went in to meet with Handsomes teacher Miss B. This was my first parent teacher conference with her, although I speak with her fairly frequently :). I knew we would go over his IEP goals to see where he was at and I was looking forward it. Needless to say, ONCE again , I was blown away by the progress he has made.

    All the goals he struggled with BIG TIME just a few months ago, he has mastered!!! For example, he has never been able to walk down the stairs with out holding onto the railing let alone remember to look down.... sure enough, he has mastered it... I wasn't sure about it so tonight I tested him myself :) lol he DOES IT!!! HOLY COW!!!!  Not to mention all the other goals he has masterd, and made significant progress on. She also commented on how fun he is to have in her class, that he is so social and loves to talk to people.

    We also, talked about what things to work on, like his self help skills. I struggles with being able to dress himself completely, he can only do a portion of it so they will be working on that along with some other goals we spoke about. Then we talked about him going into the typical Kindergarten class for a few hours a day. His teacher and I spoke at length about this and she really feels that my Handsome, will eventually be mainstreamed into a typical class room setting!!!

    HOLY SMOKES BATMAN!!!! DID YOU JUST SAY MAINSTREAM CLASSROOM????????

    I told her, this is every parents dream!! To see their child, who has struggled his whole life with autism, to be told that he will eventually be mainstreamed into a TYPICAL CLASSROOM!!!!  Right now at this moment I am crying, just thinking about the fact that my little boy, who just three years ago was diagnosed with autism, will possibly be in a mainstream class!!! I'm so very proud of him!!!!

    I'll keep you all posted on when he starts going into the typical class for a few hours a day!

    Now, tonight as my Handsome and I are getting him ready for bed, he's talking my ear off about getting to go to the fair tomorrow! And how fun it will be to see all the animals. He then says I love you dude, so I in return said " I love you to DUDE" and he does the cutest thing and says through his laughing " Your funny Mommy, You called me DUDE"

    Wow what a joy it is for this Mommy to see just how amazing the biomedical treatments are working for him!!! Thank you God that I was introduced to it and Lend4health and that we were lead to a the best DAN doctor around! As usual, words can't even express to anyone, just how blessed I feel.... its so amazing to see where My Handsome has come from.

    My goal this month for myself is to put a new video together, to be able to show you just how much progress he's made!

    Much love!

    A Quick Post with HUGE NEWS!!!


    First off, I have to say, Handsome started his first round of chelation, glutathione and vitamin C IV and he did SUPER!!! I was shocked at how well he did!!! He has another next week and I will keep you posted on progress :) Now on to the bigger news :)

    Today, Handsomes teacher told me she wants to put him in the ............

    TYPICAL kindergarten class for a few hours a day. She said he is so far along socially that he needs to be around more typical children to bloom his skills even further :)

    WAIT A SECOND...........SAY WHAT ?!?!?!?! HOLD ON ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT MY SON???

    What I really did was cry when she told me, then continued to talk to her about his social skills and about all the other things he does need to work on in their class... but friends please..... listen to this Momma tell you something.................

    I can vividly remember crying to my friends about how afraid I was that my Handsome would never talk or be able to play with other children the way a "typical" child should, and now..... 3 years later from the Month of his diagnoses I have people telling me how much he talks. How they get such a kick out of him at school, because he knows everyones names and talks to them each day. How he interacts with them at recess, and HE approaches them to play!!! These things, I was told, would most likely not happen............

    BUT THEY ARE :) and I can't express to you how happy that makes me! My Handsome is coming through that window of autism :) and my heart is filled with JOY and gratitude!!!!

    I know the Lord is seeing us through this all, and I'm amazed at how good He is to us. I will never forget the kindness of friends and strangers who have helped my son be able to go on this Journey of Hope :) ..... I can't wait to tell you about more progress every day!

    Much Love,

    The GURU :)


    I have been sick this past week so I haven't been able to blog as I had planned on. Lots will be taking place this week as my Handsome starts his first round of Chelation, glutithione and Vitamin C on Monday. I am cautiously excited about it... now when I say cautiously, its not because I am scared of the procedure, its because I don't want to get my hopes up and be to excited about the possibilities of more progress being made. So instead I opt for realisim, which is much more like me...

    Because I was sick this week, I was not able to go to one of my dearest and best friends birthday parties, who I will refer to as 'R' last night :( I was completely bummed out about it. Seeing as I rarely ever get a chance to go out let alone, go to an 'Adult' outing :)lol..... I was looking forward to seeing others I had not seen in awhile and also to meeting a few, I have only ever met over the phone or through FB (Facebook). But my beautiful sister 'D' was able to attend, so I heard about the party and how great it was and all the people who came. She also got to meet the one person I had looked forward to meeting, as she is a Mommy just like me :) an Autism Momma..

    I was honored to get to talk with her over the phone after her child was first diagnosed. I got to do what I do best, pass on information that was given to me... I really love to be able to pass on what I know and what I have gone through, I suppose that is why I am going into Social Work so that I can work with families of children with autism :).

    Anyway, my sister got to talk with her and she said she was looking forward to meeting, the "Autism Goddess Guru" lol isn't that the coolest title :) lol... Now mind you I don't look at myself like that at all, but lately I have been given a few titles, one I will not mention as its not a very nice name, then I was called the "Autism nazi" hmmm i wasn't so sure about that one.... could be good, could be bad... and now " Autism Goddes Guru" I think I will keep that title :) I like it!

    Thanks 'T' Your to kind!

    Since the day my Handsome was diagnosed with autism, my life has been quickly and profoundly changed forever. Because of these changes our lives will never be the same again, which I am eternally grateful for. Not because I want my child to have autism, but because it has taught me so much along the way on this Journey of autism. I want to help others walk through what I have gone through and I hope I am alittle bit of help to others.

    Well I have alot to do today and not alot of time to do it in.

    Much Love from

    the 'Autism Goddess Guru' lol
