Yesterday was a particularly trying day for all sorts of reasons. I wasn’t in the best of health as I have had a constant headache for the last week and no amount of tablets are shifting the pain. I haven’t been coping with the kids the slightest meltdown is getting to me.
I am weathering my own personal storm. I am feeling very down and despondent at the moment. I am still having my mini strokes and currently awaiting a heart operation. I am stuck in the dark depths of the valley, where I seem to spending more and more time there.
Anyway kids say things when you least expect them to. Zak is no exception. These last few weeks have been amazing with Zak he has had such a development spurt. His talking has gone from parrot fashion that is quite common in children with autism, to him using his own words.
We were just settling down to go to sleep when Zak said on his own accord, not parrot fashion
love you muma
OMG those words were just absolute words of joy. He said he loves me on his own. There are no feelings that can describe how those words made me feel.
