The Doodle is in a cast.........................again..............................a table top fell on the top of his foot. Not sure how long he has to wear the cast but it's definitely slowed him down a bit. We spent the better part of last Friday in doctors offices, radiology and then finished up with a 3 hour stint in the ER. Tomorrow we have our follow up with an Orthapedic specialist. A couple of years ago he fractured his shin bone and was in a cast for 3 weeks. You would need to see the Doodle in his true doodle-form to truly appreciate his activity level and to understand how this injury impacts this little guy with autism. He's taking it like a trooper but I wonder if he really understands what is happening or why he is in this cast.

Welcome to Adventures in Autism & Epilepsy
This site is created in part to lesson my billable hours of Therapy. I was told I should journal my thoughts in order to better cope with my stress. So here I am. Journaling about the things that stress me and the things I love more than anything in this world. Here those two things come together.

New to blogging, I have created Doodle Bug Chronicles to engage those interested in learning more about the mysterious, amazing and scary world of autism and epilepsy and what it might be like to raise a child with special needs. Sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking and mostly sarcastic this is my journey learning to cope with what is now my normal. I live in the wine country with my handsome and hardworking husband and two adorable boys, Doodle and Jimmy. Oh, and one crazy cat. Thanks for joining us.
