Today Was A Good Day

Many of you have reached out and asked how Cooper is doing. Thank you!

He is amazing. He is struggling but he’s coming out the other side and that is what matters. He works hard to be in a world that doesn’t always understand him or make sense to him. And that’s amazing.

The last two weeks have been all hands on deck. But the last two days have been happier for him. And that’s what matters.

Today was a good day.

Today he snuggled with his grandma and watched trains.

He played with the hose and sprayed his brothers.

He asked me with his talker when Santa is coming. When I said not until Christmas he persuaded me to put a sooner ‘present day’ on the dry erase calendar. Well played.

He tried a piece of ham for the first time!

He asked with his talker to go to the train museum and when I told him it’s not open until Saturday, he went and put his mask on. Smarty! How’s that for adaptation?!

He sat safely in the driveway.

He didn’t have any skin picking today. (Skin picking is a big concern right now and we are monitoring closely.)

His dad and I would give anything to snap our fingers and help him with his anxiety but life doesn’t work like that. So we just keep trying to help him. We will never give up.

Thank you to each and everyone of you who said a prayer or sent good juju his way. It’s working. He is happy.
