I was a good girl today. I didn’t overdue it. Promise. My supervisor even told me to tell my hubby that she was sending me off looking pretty good. She cracks me up. She is like my surrogate mother.
Matty did have a sinus infection. He was not happy about the doctor. Surprise, surprise. He is really improving with it though. He did everything that the nurse and doctor until the very end. The doctor wanted to look in his throat and he didn’t want to say “Aaaah.” So Doc H had to grab the tongue depressor.
As the doctor was writing out the prescription, I mentioned that the school was wanting an updated diagnosis on Matty. We always chuckle at that because fragile X isn’t going anywhere. He decided just to write a little statement on a prescription paper and see if that will make the powers that be happy. I got home and read what he wrote and realized my doctor isn’t up on the FXS lingo. He wrote that Matty has “a Fragile X Disorder with autistic features.” Ummm…not a disorder Doc but okay.
I bought Matthew a chicken strips kids meal from Sonic as an incentive to be nice to the doctor. When we got to the van I tried to give it to him. He actually refused it!! He tossed it back at me and told me, “NO!” I asked if he was thirsty. He told me, “huh, uh.” About halfway home he says, “I’m starving. Sonic is good.” I had to chuckle. I told him he had Sonic already but he didn’t want it. A couple of minutes later I looked back and he was chewing on his chicken strip. I asked him if he wanted his root beer and he still denied it. He didn’t drink it until we got home. He was so mad at me. I figured this probably wasn’t the time to tell him that he has a dentist appointment Monday afternoon.
Austin’s doctors appointment went okay too. They are going to work on getting him in for an EEG next week. He still seems to be okay with whatever happens.
I was telling my supervisor today that Lauren is the only “okay” one. So she will drop a bomb like she is knocked up or something. (I know Lauren is a virgin so it was totally a joke. Right Lauren!) Well, nothing that severe happened but she thinks she broke her thumb on the bus today. She had a slow girl get in her bubble and try to touch her feet. Those two things are huge no-no’s with Lauren. Lauren tried to maneuver away from girl by putting her hand out while she moved away and jammed her hand on the bus seat. We have her keeping an eye on it but we may need to take her to urgent care and get it X-rayed tomorrow.
Knock on wood that Rachel is okay. She hasn’t had health issues though. Her issues this week have been behavioral. I had her walk home from school on Monday so she could get ready for soccer. I had to go pick up Austin at school. I left Rachel a note on the kitchen table explaining what I was doing. It also said for her to get her soccer gear on, have a light snack and I should be home by then. I get home and she is nowhere in the house. I’m about to enter total freak out mode when she comes in the front door. It is 10 minutes to soccer practice and she still has her school clothes on. She got home, read the note, threw her stuff on her bed, and went up the cul-de-sac to her friends’ house. She is no longer allowed to walk to or from school for the rest of the year and she was grounded for this week. Her dad just found out so I have no clue what punishment she will have at his house. Then as if that wasn’t enough, I busted her taking peeks at my tv last night. When I called her on it she stamped her foot at me and walked off. She got sent to bed an hour early for being disrespectful and Kevin gave her a little talking to about her behavior.
I am just so ready for the weekend…or a trip to somewhere super warm and sunny.
