Hi, I am shifting from my normal posting today. My son, Dylan, needs prayer.
He's 8 and has been labeled with ADHD, ODD, anxiety, possible Bipolar and who knows what else. He has been on medicine for those conditions since he was about 3 or 4. His behaviors have been a constant issue since he was little. Year by year, they add another diagnosis and another medicine and another program to his life.
He's a great kid who loves Jesus so much. He snuggles with Jesus at bedtime and is learning to trust verses being afraid. His life ambition is to grow up and give money to the poor.
The school and I finally have a good working relationship after a couple years, yet they are still seeing some behavior issues despite the added medicine for anxiety. Recently, they noticed a pattern in these behaviors. Between 9:30-10 a.m., they can expect a "hard time" because he "crashes", so they automatically make a shift in his learning from schoolwork to a time of relaxation and exercise.
After putting some pieces together, I have an appointment this morning to get his blood sugars checked. He'll drink 3-4 water bottles a night, plus another one in the middle of the night, & he's going to the bathroom constantly. His ADHD medicine makes it so he's not hungry throughout the day, so at 6 or 7 p.m., he's extremely hungry and eats me out of house and home. Other than that, he'll eat breakfast and that's it.
I really need prayer for the wisdom of the doctors and nurses today. We go in a 11:30 this morning (WI time). It would be a relief if this is a key to all the behavior stuff. He is on more meds than most adults, and it would be amazing if all of this was just a "dietary thing". If his blood sugars are out of "wack", then that would mean he could possibly get off some of his medicines. Please pray that if this is the problem, that it would show up. (You know how you have a problem and go to the Dr. and suddenly you're fine? That's the way it usually works with us:)
I am tired of the enemy stealing from my baby. His destiny is amazing and God has wonderful plans for his life. As long as he is medicated like he is, so much of that potential is "numbed" and "stuck".
Thank you in advance for your prayers! Sorry this isn't my "normal" kind of post.
