Our Little Hero






These pictures are from the Selah Days Parade in the middle of May.  It was an idea I had for several months, but when it came down to it, I wasn't sure we'd pull it off.  We have been so busy and exhausted, but thanks to the help of our family it all worked out and Mitchell had a blast!  It was so fun to see him so excited, especially since we hadn't seen that in ages.  

Last update I mentioned we began a medication in hopes of diminishing Mitchell's aggressive behaviors.  We've been on it at least a month and unfortunately it has provided absolutely NO benefits and all the bad side effects.  His aggression has actually been worse and has turned into self-inflicting harm, which to me is very scary.  It's physically exhausting to keep him from his brother and sister so he cannot hurt them, but it's impossible to watch him all day so he doesn't seriously hurt himself.  I just have no clue what we should be doing.  We're trying to get into a psychiatrist here in town.  

Our next MRI is Fri, June 22.  I don't think we're nervous, because we are completely accepting of the Lord's will either way.  It has just been so difficult because Mitchell has not been himself for a long time.  He is so miserable and tortured and it is so heartbreaking.  We love out little boy so incredibly much and just pray that what is best for him will happen.
