I was worried that after yesterday's protests Little Prince would refuse to take his medication this morning, but apparently he reminded Mr Messy that he had to take it, and took it with no fuss whatsoever :-) Phew :-) Mr Messy talked to his teacher when they got to school and told her Little Prince is now on the medication and asked her to keep a very close eye on Little Prince. When I go and pick him up, I'm going to give the teacher the ADHD leaflet produced for teachers that the Nurse gave me, hopefully that will explain to her what she needs to look out for and how to support Little Prince. I'll read the leaflet before I hand it over, so we'll be able to discuss it if we need to.
Once again me and Princess Lollipop are having a quiet day. I'm too distracted and worried to be much use at anything, so there's no point trying!! I think I'll feel better once I've picked Little Prince up and seen how he is, and talked to his teacher and found out how he got on at school today. I wonder if it would have been better to wait until weekend to start Little Prince on the medication, then I could see for myself how he copes and what (if any) affect it has. However, I also wonder if I put off starting the medication till weekend, if I'd keep finding reasons (excuses!) to delay starting the medication. And with Little Prince being so apprehensive yesterday, putting it off might make it seem an even bigger deal to him! He asked for the medication this morning, so its probably best to take advantage of that decision and start him straight away. I just can't help second guessing myself at the moment!! Urgh! This has been such a hard decision to make, even though I thought I made the decision over a year ago with his previous Paediatrician! I just hope this is the right decision, especially as the Doctor yesterday said he'd be on the medication until he's 18!!
