Jacob and Elijah Shaddox are brothers. They live with their mom, Mary, who is the writer of this blog. Jacob is 19 and is now four inches taller than his mom! He also has ADHD and gorgeous red hair. He is a freshman at a technical college studying computer maintenance. Elijah is 15! He is in 9th grade and he is not in ROTC at his high school. He also had red hair, but it is lighter and not as thick as his brother's hair. He is hearing impaired(auditory neuropathy) and wears two cochlear implants. He also has tourette syndrome, ADHD, OCD and anxiety! Mary just started her 25th year as a teacher of the deaf. She is also in her last semester of graduate school to be a diagnostician!

Doctor's appointments

As I sit here at the pulmaologist's office going on two and a half hours, I have to remind myself how much I like this doctor. He ans his associates are great doctors who always take the exta time with their patients. They will squeeze in a sick kid and one of mine has been that sick kid. Most visits are not like this and we are not here this long or we are here but have been seen. Jacob is also very congested and needs to be seen. We had no big plans for today and I am so glad my kitchen is clean.

I am trying to see the bright side but it is hard. Elijah ha been so good but even he is getting moody and I don't blame him. We see so many doctors and the wait is the hardest part. Ugh!
