When we had gotten home from our trip I had a letter waiting for me from GIANT Steps. It was Savannah's diagnoses. She had scored a 13 and is diagnosed with Autistic Disorder with obsessive compulsive features. I know that it isn't true autism because it's part of her syndrome. I wasn't surprised at all. I think it's kinda funny though because anyone who knows Savannah the obsessive compulsiveness is one of Savannah's cute little quirks. I've been trying to get a hold of the lady who did the test, to have a consolation with her, but we keep missing each other. Now, I hope that I can just find some help on how to help Savannah and how to deal with her tantrums and everything. She's been doing better since she's started school! I went to parent teacher conference and her teacher said that she always has to have the same yellow chair and sit on the same yellow circle. Savannah's favorite color is yellow. I love Savannah's teacher. She is so nice! Last week we had appointments each day. Xander had appointments with the Cardiologist. His heart sounds the same. We went to the Pediatric Surgeon and we have to keep doing the same thing for his anal stanossis but with a bigger stretcher, and then go back in a couple weeks, and he'll look at it and see if it's in the right place, and then probably do the biopsy for hurshprungs then. Savannah had a weigh in check up, and she has lost half a pound! I have no idea how. I was so afraid that she would gain weight. We have to bring her in once a month when ever I want to bring her in. She also saw the ear, nose, and throat doctor for her tubes and they look fine. I also had a dentist appointment. This week I'm looking forward to no appointments! I'm glad because I have a lot of fun stuff to plan and do for young women s!
