Wow. What a week. Max usually is a fairly good natured boy, but he has been displaying more and more "behavior" issues. Nothing too crazy but definitely frustrating. And it scares and worries me much more so than the cognitive delays or medical challenges. Several of his therapists have recently noted his "difficult moods" in their reports.
Then this week we got to see Max's moods on steroids...whoa. Not a pretty sight. He developed a serious case of hives (part of his GI virus) and it truly was taking over every inch of his body. So the doctor added a few medications to our list, including prednisone (steroids). He has been on this drug many, many times before and never had much of a reaction.
But this time he sure did. It was awful, just awful. He was so angry, so moody and sooooo incredibly frustrating! Eeks.
Fortunately he was able to be weaned off this weekend, and today he was much happier. What a relief. Now if only I could figure out the reason for all the other tantrums and mood swings. Hmmm....
