My son Lucas has always been a very loving, overly energetic, happy and crazy little boy. He enjoyed playing with his sisters ( which he called sissys) and loved giving ma and da da a hug when they came home from work. He was an easy baby and definitely had Tobey craving for a fourth! He showed all the signs of a healthy and proactive child and connected with everyone.
Unfortunately, around 18 months, our sweet little boy woke up a different child. He slowly started to lose his affection, there was no more playing with his sisters, but instead going off and keeping to himself, no more hugs for ma and da da. There was no more eye contact, or phsyical/emotional connection and the worst for us was that he no longer spoke. Lucas's vocabulary went from about 10 words (ma, da da, nana, sissy, dog, cat, show, ipad, mom mom) to nothing... We were frantic and had no idea what was happening. Within the last few months he stopped socializing and looking at people. We weren't sure of the cause and he hasn't been diagnosed with anything yet, but we know our son was developing fine and all of the sudden he wasn't and that just isn't normal. We took him to see any and every specialist with little to no answers, only farfetched ideas, of he may just be delayed, or all kids go through this.....
Today, we still have not gotten a definite answer, but we have found different social media groups, and other parents going through some of the same obstacles with their children. We have linked up with many different doctors (inside and out of insurances) which have done test after test to determine some sort of set path to recovery. Lucas has been started on many different types of therapies, detoxes, and medical treatments as we try to throw everything we possibly can at this nightmare that stares at us each and every day just looking as though he's there but can't communicate the way he used to.
Through all of the different medications and therapy including: Chiropractic Adjustments, Hyperbaric Oxygen Treaments, Daily Vitamin Supplements, B12 shots, Nutritional Dieting, Chelation Detox and Behavioral/Speech sessions we have seen some great results with increased eye-contact, more babbling and an increase in affection towards immediate family.
What I am asking for is any donation that you can make towards helping us fight what is going on within my son. Any donations towards this cause would be greatly appreciated and Absolutely 100% of these funds will be going towards current and future medical bills and therapy for Lucas. If you are unable to donate financially, Prayer is even stronger. The only thing my family and I WANT is our son Lucas back.
