It's ME! Imagine that! LOL
Things are humming along at our house. Humming... well, that's because we've all been taking turns with larangitous (SP?). LOL We caught a darn virus on our trip to Oregon. It's one of those nasty ones that you think you are getting over the sore throat, then half a day later you are having the sinus garbage, then you feel like you're getting over that, then half a day later you have ear aches... Well, you get the picture.
I was in the ER four nights ago with my asthma. They sent me home pretty quickly with oral steroids. That worked for me. The doc didn't understand why I was so sleepy and out of it. I had just taken my Seroquel and Lamicatal, both of which put me out, about an hour and a half before we left for the hospital. LOL
Other than that, well... I am going to share that in another post here tonight.
"In the first place, God made idiots. That was for practice. Then he made school boards."
AGHHHH! Steph, so sorry to hear you've been under the weather...that's nasty stuff, we've all had it here too and it sounds like it's making the rounds across the states.
Hello!! Hmm, an update you haven't already heard? Oh, I got a few. Sammy did good on her spelling test, and her handwriting was really good. The teacher even circled the part that said "good handwriting" instead of the part that said "keep working" WooHoo
Ruby was climbing on the snow banks yesterday when her boot got stuck. While I was going over to help her, she starts pouring snow in it! Then pulls off her sock and sticks her bare foot in the snowbank!!! Her logic is the snowbank would keep her foot warm, boy was she surprised when it didn't, LOL.
I haven't been posting but I do come by still and lurk :)
We are home again, which is wonderful.
it's great to see you again and thanks for sharing a little bit about all the
I suppose I shouldn't post and run so I will post a roll call to. I have 4 kids and have been hanging around various ivillage special needs haunts for a while. My 2 oldest are Aspergers/HFA types and my youngest is ADHD with a possible side of mild PDD-NOS. (Was diagnosed but that seems to be slipping away :-))
My oldest is in middle school and it has been a rough year. Between puberty and school stress, she is having quite the time of it. THey have been on vacation and go back to school today. I am sad because I had the old,sweet Cait back for 3 weeks and worry that once school stress hits again it will go south again.
My 2nd, Mike, is in a special day class in 4th grade. He is quite a bright little monkey but can't handle mainstream classes so there ya have it. They are actually able to mainstream him about an hour a day (sometimes 2) depending on his mood. He has a fabulous teacher and has been doing great in school this year.
My 3rd is in 2nd grade. Had some reading troubles previously but with some vision work she is doing great. She is getting a new teacher starting today because her old teacher moved to be a assist. principal at another school. We are very sad to see her go, but we know the new teaching team (it is 2 women who split the week) and they are wonderful. One I have known for years from church. She was the last sunday school teacher that Mike was successful with in 1st grade.
The youngest is in kindie and doing great with a great teacher. I figure he will lose his IEP by the end of the year and after a full year of doing well I think I am ok with that.
I am looking at going back to work and got an offer a little out of my field last night. I used to do home based ABA and it was an OT friend of mine offering me part time and to train me as a COTA. I can't go back full time work due to child #2. So this may work out.
That was a long update, lol
Renee, sure glad you dropped by.
Hi, this is my first time visiting this board. My name is Megan and I live outside of Philadelphia.
My dd Abigail was born 9-14-05 and has Down Syndrome as well as some other medical issues. She was in the NICU of one of the local Childrens Hospitals for the first six weeks of her life. She is doing a lot better, but is still learning how to eat from a bottle. She has an ng tube in for most of her nourishment. We are also being followed by an oncologist, and have another appt with them on Wednesday.
I hope to find some other moms with similar circumstances to share our experiences.
Hi Megan and welcome!
