After two years of fighting and trying to navigate the new governmental health care system, We are finally back on track. The lack of compassion that we have experienced has been astronomical. No one was willing to take a step back from their own misery to actually look at the people in front of them. That seems to be the problem with the world now. Everyone is so focused on themselves, that they forget that they could be the one that makes someone else's day better. The entire pay it forward idea seems to be lost forever. OK, negative done! On to the positive!
Anthony has been very wonderful in trying to succeed with his implant even without the ability to have the mapping done. When he started in his new school he was able to spontaneously say 4 words, now with the help of his education team, he is up to 104. You can not ask for better. Considering the lack of help up to this point, he is doing amazing.
The moral of the story is this: You can not give up. You are your child's only advocate. You are the one who knows what is best for your child and you can never let anyone tell you different. You fight for yourself in work, in personal matters and in financial matters. You can go far if you just apply the same thought process to your children and never give up! Have a wonderful day!
