I wonder how many blog posts are titled "sleep issues." Seems to be a recurring theme. :)
Max continues to have mixed results with his sleep medications. I was so *hoping* this was going to be the answer and perhaps it still will be. We just need to keep experimenting with the dosage, but he already has surpassed the initial three levels.
It certainly isn't good for his health (and development) and continues to really interfere with our schedule. We have had to cancel numerous therapy sessions and school days, and that inconveniences so many others too. How many times can I call his therapist/s and say "yep, he still is sleeping" or "he is extremely grumpy because he didn't sleep again"??? I know they are getting frustrated too.
Last night we were eating dinner and he was quite tired. He signed "all done" and wanted to watch a video. Ok, I wasn't going to fight it. Two minutes later I look over, and he is fast asleep...with a full mouth of food. That sure was fun trying to empty his mouth without waking him up. Sorry Max!
I know in the big scheme of things this sleep issue isn't a huge deal, and we will conquer it. Just hoping it is sooner than later. :)
