Autism recovered?

Medical experts say it's not possible to recover autism. We have living proof in the form of three children, that it IS possible. In my blog you will find recovery stories, along with information regarding health that I have learned over the years. And sometimes just snippets of life to give hope that yes, life can be normal after the hard work is done.

Sit back, enjoy, and be hopeful! RECOVERY HAPPENS!

The Official Retirement

 Here he is, about to go in to China Buffet, where his work buddies had planned his last meal (lol) as an Air Force dude.  He and I were both giddy by this point b/c this was THE last thing he had to do.  We had spent the morning doing his final out processing stuff so this was the END.  :)

This nice officer gave Daddyman his medals, coins and other assorted farewell goodies.   I forgot to take pictures of everyone else but there were some really great people there. 

One of his co-workers giving him the ole' caulk.  This is a replica of the caulks that go under the jet wheels.  Tradition dictates that when they are "read into" the maintenance squadron, the new person has to wrestle the caulk from the other; and the same happens when they are "read out".  This guy was too nice and just gave Daddyman the caulk.  lol

 Well we didn't realize we had to go back to the base so there could be a flag near him when he was read out by the officer.  It was quick and painless though.   It took the wind out of our sails for a bit to hear the words read.  The really exciting part was I got a few certificates myself, all pretty in the official AF folders and everything.  Daddyman said he requested they give me those.  They made me stand up front while they read them to everyone in the room; that part was embarrassing.  Basically they thanked me for supporting Daddyman in his career.  That was pretty awesome of him to so publicly recognize our families sacrifice.

 Goodbye Air Force!
