Life is calm and the waters are still

The waters are still. It's a good feeling when you aren't in the midst of a storm. We started our son on Haloperidol Decanoate Injections on Feb. 8th. Three days after the injection, he started having muscle spasms that made normal activities difficult. His answer was to remain completely still and ended up sleeping for almost 3 days. The doctor recommended benodryl and said the spasms were the result of the injection being administered into muscle not a reaction to the medication. We will see what happens after the next injection (next month).

He has returned to school for half days and we hope to increase the time at school in the next week. Life is calm. He is functioning well at home, school and church. I like to see my babies okay.

  1. I am reading this thinking wow, it has been a few months and no one has posted to see how your son is doing, and though I just read this blog today, I wanted to ask how he is actually doing. I pray he is doing better and yes, the waters are still throughout every moment in life for with God all things are possible and He is our refuge and strength!
