My son has MMR, ODD, Anxiety, and doesn't deal with change well...Question
My son is 7, he was born two months early with seizures. He would seize and almost die on a dialy basis for the first two years of his life. He has Mild Mental Retardation,Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Anxiety, and Does NOT react well to Changes. He had to deal with a divorce at a young age, he was 3. But his biological father walked out of his life January 2010.He has a wonderful step father who he loves and who loves him and treats him wonderful. His biological tries coming around on Christmas and on his birthday in April, but It just sends him into a "relapse" or a long period of...horrid misbehavior. By relapse I mean it triggers (as does Big changes) a Relapse of knowlage. Such as He forgets his colors or numbers, or how to brush hair or teeth, or use the bathroom or hold his bladder at night. That being said, Nothing has changed for a while in our home, and Bio hasn't been around for a while again, and Now all the sudden my son says he cannot hold his bladder at night any more. He is peeing his bed every night while he sleeps. With nothing being different and nothing changing, I'm concerned why this is happening. He doesn't get to drink anything a few hours before bedtime except a sip to take his meds. I'm not sure if I should take him to the University to have them check his brain or just let this ride itself out and get him some pull ups? He didn't have a problem night training when he was 3. He hasn't had any problems until now. I'm just not sure why. He has been seizure free (that we know of) since July of 2009. But the University said that when a "Relapse" happens I should call and take him in for them to moniter his brain activity for a few hours to see if he is having seizures or if there is unusual activity. I'm just not sure what to do and how to help my little boy. :( Any one have any suggestions??
