I had a long chat with the Occupational Therapist yesterday, and she confirmed that they can see Little Prince, but only at the Clinic and not home or school. I explained that we wanted ideas to help keep Little Prince calm without using his medication and she said they would be able to assess what would help with that. She also said that if we apply for charitable funding to help buy the resources, they would be happy to write in support of that. She said that we needed to get our GP to refer us back to them, and that they see the majority of children within 6 weeks of receiving a referral YEAH :-)
I made an appointment to see our GP this morning, I let Little Prince go to school rather than keep him off, as our GP knows exactly what he is like and I didn't think it was worth Little Prince missing school just while we asked for a referral. Our GP was perfectly happy to make the referral I asked him to, and dictated the letter while we were in the consulting room. Princess Lollipop was whispering (loudly) "What de nerf is the Doctor doing?" I hope that doesn't make its way into the letter lol. The GP also said my eyelids looked swollen and puffy, and said it could be something to do with too much protein in my blood! He said this can happen after coughs and colds, and that I've got to drop a water sample off at the surgery to be tested to see what is going on. I've been paranoidly checking my reflection in the mirror all day and I can't see anything different, so hopefully its nothing to worry about.
