Crazy Day...

out here.. Lots of stuff happened and is happening.. All centering around education; status of education in the town we live in; current status of Salamander's education; attempting to get a grip on the exact nature of Salamander's LDs and how they affect his education; upcoming annual IEP review, and so on.

Lots to think about, lots to sort out. It just seems that getting a child like Salamander in a place where they can learn, can continue to learn and can become a fully functioning member of society is just a never ending battle.. When you address one thing, then there's the next thing that crops up, and then the next thing, and then the next thing (I can't stress this enough; while biomedical interventions can be a HUGE component of getting your child well, the gaps in your child's development that occurred while they were sick and then healing do NOT just take care of themselves).

I'll post more about the what, when, why and how as my thoughts become more organized. And yes, I am a tad stressed out as I get a better picture of the magnitude of the impact Salamander's challenges have on his learning style (and that we have a lot of work ahead of us to truly get him to 5th grade and then middle school academic level).

And what is not helping my stress levels one bit is the eminent visit of the paternal grandparents. They are flying in tomorrow nite. And by Tuesday morning I'll be ready for that *padded room*. Sigh...
