Just a quick update. Yesterday was busy with appointments. Matthew had speech in the morning and saw the urologist for his surgical follow up yesterday afternoon. Everything seems to be working well so Matthew doesn't need to be seen again by the urologist unless there are concerns.
We had a meeting at the school to discuss Maia's evaluation and goals. As always, I am so thankful for the staff. Their commitment to her is evident. The speech therapist is working to help Maia use some buttons to help her verbalize. There is one that will say her name when she pushes it. Another and will allow her to make yes/no choices. Both Speech and OT are working with Maia on feeding. Little stinker... It appears she's able to do a bit more than she let's on at home. ;-) PT wasn't there, but have some goals for balance and mobility. Although she will not be seen by PT and OT every week, they will make suggestions to be implemented into her daily classroom routine.
It was a kind of brutal day at work and long past the kids' bedtime when I got home. But, I was off today instead so I did get to spend a bit of time with them before leaving this evening for a conference in the cities. mark is holding down the fort at home. He and the kids will join me on Friday and we will spend one night at the water park hotel again as a special treat.
Feels a bit weird to be have peace and quiet in my hotel room. Yes, I am absolutely enjoying these moments and taking advantage of a little prayer time as well. The morning schedule starts early so I will sign off for the night.
