Well this week has been interesting to say the least.
First, on Monday I got the OT report showing Lil Man was at about 7 months development (can you say ouch!). Then we sent off all that information to apply for the Birth-Three program, which obviously he qualifies for. Since he receives speech through the hospital we won’t be using them for speech, but he desperately needs OT, so we will start there.
Then I took Lil Miss and got her enrolled in pre-school since we were one of the first to turn the application, so it seems, she should start soon instead of waiting until September. Which is awesome because she has only been asking to go to school for 2 YEARS! (I think she gets that from me :D)
Also Monday I got confirmation my orthopedic surgeon accepts all my insurance, I go this coming Monday to get a referral to see him. I will most likely, almost certainly, will be having another surgery; this one will all likelihood will be far more extensive than the first.
We learned Lil Man had one “blip” on his EEG, and the neurologist (who specializes in kids with autism) said something like 45% of kids with autism have that “blip” but not all those actually have seizures. (Confusing I know) So we will continue to keep an eye on him to see if the staring spells get any worse or anything then go from there.
He also placed a referral to have Del evaluated with for an AAC device, hopefully I will have that appointment made soon.
And finally, today hubby messaged me from work and said that his new manager has asked him to apply for the assistant manager’s positon because she really wants him as her assistant!!! He will be applying, but still has to jump through all the hoops and hope nobody above her wants someone else in that position (all though they have been through 3 manager teams since he has been there about a year)…but it appears he has pretty dang good shot.
Alright, on to eye candy! This weeks picture is awesome, our family is a music family. Lil Man loves listening to music (especially Elton John!) as does Lil Miss (her fave? Adele)–I know I am spoiled with kids who like good musical taste, I blame that on hubby and his family they are HUGE music people. 🙂
