Hi everyone how are you doing today?
A tough week
This week has been a little tough with Jake being unwell, there would have been am update yesterday but thankfully my phone shut down half way through writing the post. Which was definitely a good thing.
Always better to not post when your really stressed,😅 wouldn’t want anyone to think I am a utter cow.
After alot of commotion in getting Jake to doctor again he was able to communicate what his pain felt like to him the doctor got the info from a&e visit and we quickly ruled out heart being the issues, so what was causing Jake’s pain, muscular that costochondral ligament
Between the ribs and sternum was strained.
Now Jake being autistic means for him he won’t take medicines very easily he has to know what is causing his pain first, this really does come from many hospital and doctor’s visits over the years where we gave him some meds before his appointments,
And having to wait for the appointments ment his pain subsided when we got there, and then the doctors would not understand he was in pain so didn’t offer him any support. This caused his anxiety of not being beileved. Then when we got home and pain meds stopped working and the pain came back he just didn’t understand why doctors didn’t find out what was causing it.
So for Jake this is the INVISIBLE SIDE🙈🙉🙊
You can’t see it or here his perspective and he can’t always say where it really is hurting so it seems that the pains are random and not always in the place he feels them.
Really thankful we found the solution quickly.
He did take a tablet which did ease the pain. For him it has to be a Logical reason.
The doctor used not only words but visual prompts like squeezing his hands to demonstrate the the squeezing feeling.
Jake returned back to school today, still has the pain but 1tablet before he went lasted a couple of hours he managed to hold off when the pain returned till he came home.😀
We are going again this year for Niki’s birthday treat, and it is close to where my oldest son lives so we get to meet up and spend time with him too, a real family affair.
Niki’s Tom will be joining us from Holland, some of us will be in costume some not. But sure is a wonderful event. Hoping to get some AWSOME photo’s when we are there again.
Last year I was Supergirl, my oldest Superman, Niki, Harley Quinn and Jake was Sans

The bubble of excitement building

Give aways 🎁
This is something I hope to have sorted for author event aswell.
Just some thing small because at the moment as i am just starting out on this new self published journey funds are a little limited.
This is definatley going to be one of my busiest couple of months, I am already a little on the tired side 😴.
Wishing you all a beautiful and peaceful Night or day.
All my love Faye xxx
