Any parent of a child with autism knows that daily life can often be a struggle. Children on the autism spectrum have their good days and their bad ones, and sometimes it can really wear down on a parent. I am not saying that parents are mad about their situation, it just gets difficult trying to figure out the best course of action is when their child is having a rough day.
When you add a second ongoing medical condition to the mix it can make things infinitely more difficult, and that is the reality that Jen Goodland-Wyatt deals with on a daily basis. Her son Oscar is on the autism spectrum but he has also had constant heart issues since he was little, which has meant numerous trips to a cardiologist.
She recently took Oscar to a local TGI Fridays in Binley Woods, England, and that experience has left her feeling great, and has even made her son a bit of a social media star.
After a recent appointment with the cardiologist which resulted in Oscar being told he couldn't do karate anymore, Jen took him to TGI Fridays to eat. Jen told the restaurant staff that Oscar was upset and they let him choose the Star Wars-themed table. Oscar, who considered himself to be a Star Wars-superhero, was still visibly upset, that is until a waitress came up and handed him his menu. “I understand you’re a superhero — here’s your menu.”
