A quiet Christmas

We have enjoyed a quiet Christmas at the farm. With lots of fun games, plenty to eat and fresh country air. It does make you sleepy though. Thankfully there is time for everyone to have a day rest.

Before we leave for home there was some work to be done, and we are all to happy to help out in the cattle yards.

We are not far away from our next appointment at the ABR clinic in Sydney. So we are getting ready for that next.

Busy Busy Busy

The Holidays have only started a week ago, but we have been busy busy busy. Christmas carols, putting up decorations, tidying up around the house, Christmas shopping and catching up with relatives and friends. Harri seems to be just as tired as when he was at school. We are looking forward to a slow couple of days over Christmas and boxing day.

Harri's trial on the medicine is progressing well. We are seeing definite signs of more activeness and alertness, as well as being generally more relaxed and sleeping better. We are hopeful that as his body adjusts to the level he is on, it will enable him to form his words better. This won't come quickly as Harri has not spoken since 2001, so even if the ability to speak starts to return, Harri will have to go through learning to form his sounds again.

School year comes to a close

Well !  The school year has come to a close and Harri is worn out from a big term. Christmas and new year just around the corner, the early in the new year a trip to the next ABR clinic in Sydney. I thought at the close of this year to share some photos of Harri's awards and certificates. First the school awards.

Then the 10 Pin Bowling awards. The team, 
Harri's individual awards.

Last week of school

This is the last week of school for QLD students. Harri has had meetings with the administration at both Corinda State High and Nursery Road, he will attend both campus's next year. 3 Days Corinda, 2 days Nursery Road.

So new school uniforms required for high school.

The new medicine trial continues for Harrison, they doses are getting up close to therapeutic levels. We are waiting very patiently for the break through that may give Harri back his ability to speak. Some good news in the last week, is that we have found out about a young adult with a similar diagnoses to Harri, is having good success with the new medicine.
