We're Back!

I know, I know...it's been a while. So many things happened in 1 year that I wasn't writing here. We were very busy with a lot of things. 24 hours isn't enough to do everything we needed to do. I promise to write more about them in my next posts. For now, I would like to give you an idea of all the changes eversince.

  • Patricia's Speech Therapy is now twice a week with 2 different Speech Pathologists. 
  • We started homeschooling her this June which is a very big move.
  • We brought her to an OT Professor to have her assessed.
  • We've been doing pressing massage for a month now. It seems to be working fine.

Patricia has improved greatly for the past year. She has more words, she's more relaxed, less fears, no tantrums and she also seems to be healthier. We're still following Dr. Dizon's program and incorporating it to our homeschooling activities. Don't worry because I'll be writing a separate post on that.

The year also proved to be a very trying and challenging year for our family. My mom died 5 months ago. It was a very sudden death that left us shocked and unprepared. She's my strength, my pillar especially during times of difficulties in parenting. Until now, everyone's still adjusting. My brother, Allen left for Singapore late last year, making it even harder for us. =(

We also got extra jobs. Hopefully, everything will be better for us. I wanted Patricia to have more activities, ideally with other kids. A play group or a group therapy session or a play school that she can attend to even for just once a week. Somewhere she can mingle with other kids regularly.

Anyway, that's it for now. I'll be writing about these in more details in the next posts. Cheers!
