Regression: There and Back Again - Update on Our 2 Year Old

It has been a difficult week and our 2 year old regressed again so that by Thursday we couldn’t understand his words, no more eye contact, very rigid, tantrums over just about everything (not all day, but you just don't know what will set him off). The only thing we had added back in to his diet was eggs/yolks, so we pulled those back out of his diet yesterday and by bedtime, he was making some eye contact and conversing some and was laughing and giggling again. He threw horrific tantrums at bedtime for the past three nights, literally screaming at the top of his lungs.  Tonight, he climbed into bed on his own and went right to sleep after I sang to him, kissed him, and walked away saying "Goodnight."  Apparently, there is some connection between sulfur foods and mercury and autism. All I can say is “Wow!” and it sure is nice to be getting him back again.

I posted all of my research and ponderings in an earlier post.  I just wanted to update that he is doing better already.  We finally scheduled the CATscan that the Neurologist ordered.  It will be next Tuesday, four days from today.
