The long year has come to an end....

so we saw the doctor today. I expressed my concern that Noah is not showing improvement. He said 4-6 weeks to get fully into the system and start changing things around in his head.

Not working.

We upped the dose to 50mg...and he told me that he feels that at this point, it is safe to give him the asperger diagnosis too.

they said from the beginning that if the meds took away the symptoms, it wasn't aspergers too. If the symptoms stayed, it was both the stroke and the aspergers.

He thinks that it will be beneficial to Noah to have it officially diagnosed now where he is going back to school this fall....to get the door open for more therapies, etc.

I just never wanted this day to come.

My heart is aching for you but I'm glad you have some answers.

You're very strong and VERY loved. Wish there was more I could say or do.

Thank you Tara....your words mean a lot. This has been so hard and now discouraging. I pray that one day, he will be better.
