My eight year old son cannot communicate at all, has daily meltdowns, and cannot stand on his own. He is like a baby that never hit any milestones. He's never pulled to stand, never out of diapers, never fed himself or walked unassisted and loud or sudden noises make him cry. He is missing a piece of DNA (chromosome 9q22.2) but we are unsure if it made him disabled. He has a diagnosis of partial agenesis of the corpus callosum, microcephaly, and infantile Autism.
I scheduled several concerts this summer as a way to take a break from the stresses of parenting. I got to go to see Kid Rock in concert at DTE. He put on a great two-hour show, and Foreigner played before him for an hour. I had a lot of fun with friends and family. I also had a respite worker with Andy the next day to help work with him as I had gotten very little sleep. My husband stayed with Andy while I was at the concert. Kid Rock did not disappoint, and he brought it night after night. I would recommend that anyone see him if they haven't before. People that have seen him in the past make sure to make it back again and again. I was able to get good pictures with my camera.
