Choking is not a game….

Various pills

Our son has been a handful lately.  I confronted him about it yesterday.

I have had very little sleep for the last 2 days.  He hasn’t either.  His body seems to thrive on 4 hours of sleep.

Turns out that when I give him his medicine, he has been spitting them out.

So we started massaging his chin and throat.  Well, that makes sure he swallows them, but then he goes into the bathroom and makes himself throw up the pills.   He is 10.  My heart  breaks to think that he is starting this.  He says that he wants some free time to himself.

So the next business day, I am going to be in touch with his doctor.  I am afraid for his life.

Now, I know that at least the superintendent of our school district is reading this.  I don’t much care.  This blog isn’t about you.  This blog is about a little boy who deserves life.  By not allowing him into your schools, nee, our schools, you are robbing him of part of his life.

Am I blind enough to believe that letting him into school will magically correct his many blessings?  No.  Not by a long shot.  But doesn’t he deserve the opportunity to try?  Hasn’t he earned that much in his young life?

I don’t know what to do about his meds.  I do know that we can’t continue on like this.  It isn’t healthy for him, me or anyone else in the family.  Wish us luck.
