Actually going to use the blog to journal our DMG trial this week. Dominic's getting 125mg of DMG in the morning.
I'll update this particular post over the week, and we may just do a 1 week trial, we might do 2 weeks:
Behavior: Dominic is much higher energy than usual. He got his DMG dose w/breakfast. By 15 minutes later he could not stand still. D11 school notes do not indicate issues, but Alpine notes showed much higher behaviors than last week, mostly with elopements. Seems jittery. Compliance at home is average.
Verbals: Alpine notes show that Dominic had 160 Free operants today, a huge drop from the first 2 weeks in September, each of which were over 200. but, his therapist today noted that ALL of them were clear words. Just now as I was typing (he's eating dinner), He cried out "dropped it, dropped it, Mommy, Dropped it". He'd dropped his meatball.
Tummy: Very gassy. No evening poop.
appetite: Through the roof. For Dinner he had - 2 large meatballs (ice cream scooper size), 1 1/2 C broccoli, 1 banana, 1 cup applesauce, 2 slices bacon, and 1/2 a bowl of rice chex. And still came running out of the bathroom, naked, yelling "bacon, bacon"
Sleep - he was so high energy that I gave him a double dose of Melatonin. He slept from 7-6, with us getting him up at 10 for the bathroom.
Behavior: Much better than yesterday. Almost no behaviors noted at Alpine. Very Compliant. D11 note indicates excellent focus on task today. Perfectly behaved at HBOT
Verbals: Also much better than yesterday - 250 again at Alpine. Totally chatty with Mr B at HBOT
Tummy: Gave prunes. They worked. Tummy is fine, poop looks normal
Appetite: Still very high, but less than yesterday. Had 3 large meals, 2 snacks, and was asking for more snacks before dinner.
Sleep: 11 hours, no fighting bedtime
Behavior: Good day at alpine during programs, some non compliance during testing.
Verbals: still over 230
Tummy: perfectly normal. had prunes again. they worked again
Sleep: 11 hours... no fighting bedtime.
Behavior: Doing great. Good focus on programs. Minimal compliance issues @Alpine. A bit squirmy in the HBOT tank, but calmed down pretty well. Alpine therapist noted how much better he was doing than when we were in the middle of the gummi bear yeast fest.
Verbals: First day EVER - he's hit over 300 in a 2 session chunk at Alpine. His total Free Operants (verbal attempts, whether word or babble intended as communicative) were 311.
Tummy: Normal poop. No gas
Appetite: Closer to normal. Only had 2 bowls of fruit after a full plate of pasta tonight. We are so screwed when he hits the teenage years.
