Phew! The Party is Over!

Marshall did NOT have fun at his party. He kept having HUGE meltdowns over and over and over again!!!!! It got so bad that I had to remove him from the room and put him in my bedroom with my poor sick hubby. He bit his brother and threw a rock at his friend. Every year I have done a birthday party for him and every year he seems to get more and more angry!!!! So here is my new plan. NO MORE BIRTHDAY PARTIES! Maybe we will have our cousins come over to play but that is it. Why put him through the misery??? He slept really poorly last night so maybe that has something to do with it. I'm not sure. I just know he's been agitated all day. He has been screaming at Nathan over every tiny thing. He's also been crying that his bum hurts. He always says that but lately he's been saying it more and more. I will take him to the doctor next week to see if he can help me figure out why Marshall is hurting. I have no clue. Maybe he's just extremely over sensitive right now. Is it just me, or do his behaviors just scream Autism?

I'm no doctor, but I do see a lot of autism characteristics in what you've described about him. It is interesting that he says his bum hurts. Could he be constipated? Does he have any of those issues?

We think he's constipated but we're not positive. He refuses to go poop. He usually drinks 3+ cans of Pediasure a day but he hasn't been drinking as much lately. I have him on Miralax again and I'll push the Pediasure tomorrow.

I see a lot of Autistic traits in him too. Maybe he's different now than he was in the beginning of the year. The first ADOS was last summer I think.

Happy Birthday... even if it wasn't. I hope he is feeling and doing better!
