My eight year old son cannot speak or communicate at all, he has daily meltdowns, and cannot stand on his own. He is like a baby that never hit any milestones. He's never crawled or pulled to stand, 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.
