Living a Life Less Ordinary
Hi my name is Natalie and I would like to welcome you to my site.
I am a work-at-home-mom, and I am very grateful to be at home with my two boys’ who have special needs.
It took me the better part of 15 years living with Special needs children to be able to talk about what was wrong with them, and not cry!
For me that was a major breakthrough, accepting that I cannot fix what’s wrong and make it better for them, is something that I think I will never get right!
The boys both a recessive genetic disorder called Andermann’s Syndrome.
This syndrome is a disorder that damages the nerves used for muscle movement and sensation (gross motor, fine motor and sensory neuropathy).
Neither of the boys have ant reflexes at all, and they both have severe low muscle tone (Hypotonia).
Luckily, and I use that term very broadly, only Tegan has the tremors and the seizures associated with Andermann’s.
Some of the other known features of Andermann’s syndrome:
For me this has been a blessing, because not knowing what’s going to happen next or what’s going to go wrong, is sometimes a blessing. I am a worrier by nature and was after having gone through a scoliosis correction with Darian, I was expecting to go through one with Tegan at roughly the same age… I was panicking!!!
But Tegan’s scoliosis is progressing much slower and his last set of X-rays show no noticeable development in the last year, so for now we have a breather.
Having children with special needs is the most difficult, heartbreaking thing I have ever had to do in my life!
I struggle to upbeat all the time, to be patient, to consider myself blessed, to get up in the morning, to put a smile on my face everyday and
pretend that I’m the worlds best mommy like everyone makes me out to be!
Does that make me a bad mom?
No it makes me human…
Through all the battles we fight everyday, and the uncertainties in our life, there is only one thing I know for sure and hold onto with both hands, it is my life line…I love my boys with all my heart, and they love me back, unconditionally! When those not so little arms come around my neck and lots of slobbery kisses are handed out…
All is right with my world!
