My inlaws don't believe there is anything "off" about Conner. He has mild-moderate hypotonic cerebral palsy, according to his neuro and the physical med./rehabilitation motor delays clinic. He aspirates liquids. He wears glasses and leg braces (we might be switching from AFO to SMO, though, WOOT for small victories!). His hypotonia affects his involuntary as well as voluntary muscles, so his digestive system is really slow and he gets constipated easily, and the sphincter at the top of his stomach doesn't work properly; he's still refluxing at 18 months old.
My mother-in-law believes that I just want Conner to be sick so I can control my husband. She refuses to make him wear his glasses/braces, and she refuses to thicken his liquids. She'd probably call CPS on me if she knew I pushed for him to be placed on reflux meds, then on miralax so he could poop regularly without pain.
Is it just me? Am I doing something wrong? I just can't stand them anymore...
On the bright side, here's a pic of my lil man!
