Do you have a set schedule?

All of the above-chart, schedule and daily routine. Otherwise I would lose my mind. lol
I'm fairly flexible if my routine gets suddenly changed but I do like to try to get back on track quickly.

I'm single, so there's more room to change and to do things on a whim. My nephew is also older, and he's no longer studying on a regular basis with me unless he has to prepare for an exam though we have to see what happens in the coming school year.

A lot of times work and fun are combined. One of my business partners is a good friend. I've worked with or assisted other friends. So we transition from work to fun to work then back to fun all of the time.

I'm thinking about developing a chart for us since I started back to work.

That sounds so nice being able to transition back and forth so easily.

Thanks Karen and oh boy is she a handful. She is very, very fussy. It may have to do with her intestine issues. She doesn't sleep well and we are all taking turns staying with her a bit just so mom and dad can get things done and rest a little.
Oh and she had her first First Steps Eval yesterday. Not sure yet what they are going to recommend.

In our case they gave us exactly what we had in the NICU plus speech when she got older.

Yeah, we aren't sure what all is going to happen yet. She still has to be monitored by the eye doc weekly and ped every other week until she gets a little bigger.

Did she have the ROP laser surgery?

She hasn't had the laser surgery and we are hoping she doesn't have to. Her one eye has gotten worse this week but the other has stayed the same. They said she have to monitored until it clears up or gets worse and she has the surgery.

How long did it take for Emily to get down to just a few times a year?
