A Diving We Will Go!

I haven't posted lately because for the last 3 weeks, I have been taking my oldest son to daily (M-F) hyperbaric oxygen dives. As of today we have completed 15 dives and have 5 more to do. It has been tiring as we have had to take the younger two to be with grandpa each morning and make sure we leave the house by 7:30 am to wind our way through traffic.

For those not in the "know", HBOT (hyperbaric oxygen therapy) has been used in the past couple of years in increasing amounts to assist children with autism on their road to recovery. My oldest was diagnosed almost 5 years ago with PDD-NOS (or autism spectrum disorder). It has been a long path full of trials, tribulations and trial and error. But for all of our efforts and by God's grace, he is doing wonderfully and I dare say, moving ever closer to recovery.

More will be coming as we complete our dives and get back to normal. As for now, blessings on this wonderful Spring Friday!! May God richly bless you today!!
