    Hello @gambitsbit and a warm welcome to the community. Good to have you with us.
    Any thoughts on ways that we might be able to support you in what is obviously a tough situation?
    For what it is worth, Cerebral Palsy, GDD and epilepsy were among the conditions my late daughter had and my then wife also had severe mental issues. May be that we share some common ground.
    Respects and warmest best wishes to you,
    @JennysDad
