It's been a year since I've updated my journal.
I didn't deactivate as I intended to but I put everything in storage.
I found out my external hard disk is corrupted and lost EVERY.PHOTOS. I've taken before 2014. Even my oldest son's personnal photo sessions
you have no idea how I'm feeling about this. I'm looking for someone who can try and retract the files from the hard drive. Everything is in there, but I can't access it because of partition loss.
I'm rebuilding my photography portfolio so I can take a contract here and there.
My FB followers know that my oldest, Raphael, is turning 4 and has been undergoing many medical follows since july 2014.
He is so far receiving hypothesises of Severe global dysphasia (language disorder) , verbal dyspraxia and ADHD. We're also on the lookout so we can remove a possible ASD (Autism spectrum disorder) from the list (we don't see him fit the spectrum but his atypical behaviors are present. atypical behaviors that are present in the other 2 neurological disorders I listed)
In any case, he's now considered handicapped until he can function correctly with the dysphasia (imagine verbal dyslexia? dyslexia of speech and comprehension)
but he's made enormous progress in 1 year. Barely verbal, he is now expressing his needs with small built sentences. They're not "natural" but he can express himself
it's a win!
He's starting pre-k for handicapped children in september 5 half days a week. It should help him get the proper help for kindergarten next year and also to have other specialists opinion regarding ASD (3 say no, 2 say possibility)
turns out I was admitted to the hospital on Halloween night 2014 after I broke my water while cleaning up after trick or treating. I was 33 weeks point. I was hospitalized 2 weeks before I was induced and had a successfull VBAC. Miguel weighted 4lbs14oz for 16.9inches at birth. Apgar 10-10-10, no distress!! we couldn't be any happier. He's a wonderful smiling boy. Totally different from his brother but just as happy-go-lucky. He has joined the 50th percentile in height by 8 months and a bit above 15th in weight. He follows his real age development and so we don't consider him premature (neither do the doctors and nurses)
ever since it's been CHAOS in the house. I'm getting used to everything and enjoying summer before going back to work in september.
With gouvernmental cuts in health, I still don't know if I am secure in my position. I'm trying to rush my last 3-4 classes so I can have a back up plan that pays as much (medical secretary diploma)
that said, in health wise, I gained all my lost weight back. thanks to undiagnosed hypothyroidism. I've been suffering from it for 13 years, but I had no idea it wasn't fine after the birth. Still adjusting it. I also received my official ADHD impulsivity and possible TOP diagnosis. medicated, but not adjusted....
I'm waiting for my coworker to get in contact with our institution's neuropsychiatrist to see if they can confirm my diagnosis so my doctor stops thinking I'm just looking for drugs.
so.... I'm keeping my photography page now, and it's online with a bit of material.
