The fork in the road

Holly D Gray5 Comments
In the process of deciding just what to do about Caleigh's schooling; Eric and I were talking about the inevitable fork in the road. I feel very Robert Frostish lately.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Now I just need to find out which one is the less traveled and which one will make all the difference for our girl.
Caleigh didn't go to school yesterday. Today we have a GI appointment, OT and a meeting with our MDCP lady. It's a busy day.

Caleigh's pain has increased since we finished the antibiotic last Wednesday. Her tummy is big. She is stooling at least 4 times a day. She tells me 5+ times a day "I feel sick" "My tummy hurts." Before going off the antibiotic she mostly said she was happy or sleepy. When she isn't being fed she tends to not notice as much. It's the feeds that seem to be bothering her. Sunday morning I woke up to the smell of Elecare. The tube had come open and the pump was feeding the bed for who knows how long. Caleigh seemed a little more upbeat that day not getting all of her feed. I'm very interested to see what the GI has to say about everything.

We have a neuro ophthalmologist appointment lined up. We also have a meeting with a child psychologist. We will be talking CVI with the neuro opthalmologist. We will be talking to the child psychologist about counseling techniques, and possible testing for school including the idea that Caleigh might be what is known as twice exceptional. We are hoping to get some more direction on Caleigh's education and vision. We are hoping to learn a lot from our upcoming appointments.

Until then, I will play the two scenarios in my head. A life in the public school system or a life of home and community education. They are two completely different paths. Equally just the same. Which one makes all the difference?
