It happened....

After Abs got sick Monday night, I managed to make it through TAKS testing on Wednesday, and race home to get sick. It was awful. Two things that were confirmed: 1. I am a horrible sick person and 2. My husband loves me unconditionally.

Thank goodness for #2, and that he was home to help! The only one who hasn't gotten sick was Junior, so maybe he was really throwing up in the tent last Friday and was producing nothing to go with it? Let's hope that this family is on the mend.

I am trying to put together the most ridiculous project while I am laid up in bed. I have to create a math exploration topic with all these different requirements. She provided a great example for a 6th grade class, but for second graders we have a whole other things going on. I have to design activities to go along with it, and while 6th graders could probably deal with dried beans, I imagine my second graders eating them, sucking on them, or sticking them up their nose. I'll just hope for the best.

I do have to drag myself out of bed today to go to a SNAP meeting for Abs. This is where they want to remove her from daycare permanently and send her somewhere else. I have HUGE issues with this for many reasons.

1. FCC--while this is a great option for some people, it is not for me. I had a friend whose daughter was hurt by none of the people that the daycare people investigated, but by the boyfriend the wife had while her husband was deployed. You just never know, and I would never be able to be at ease with that situation.

2. Their second option is they send Abs to a home daycare that is run by staff that also works in the centers. She tried to sell me on this by telling me how Abs can watch tv all day if she wants, and it's a home environment. I don't want Abs watching tv all day, which she will do if given the opportunity. I asked if these places go on field trips like the SAS summer camp does and she said no. So you will take a child with ADHD, coop her up in the house all summer, let her watch tv, and then expect her to behave. Not going to happen.

3. If they tell me that these are my only two options, I am moving to plan B. I had a friend that put her daughter in a great summer daycamp in Salado. It cost big bucks, but was wonderful, and I will go with that option. The thought of driving to Salado every day is less than inviting, but will happen if that is the choice I am faced with....

......Took a nap and forgot to finish up. I went to the meeting, and they do not find me funny. Imagine that. Anway, Abs can go to the regular summer camp, and the community health nurse said that Abs should have bitten that kid if he was holding her down. We HAVE to enroll her in EFMP this time, and Junior too with his egg allergy. I still don't agree with that, but.....

The big news????? We don't have orders yet, because they are handing them out on their first day back to work, but we do have a reporting date of July 10th.

Let the PCS stories begin.....

1) I hope that you are feeling better. That everyone in the family is over it now, but if you need something I will bring it to you.

2) EFMP isn't too bad. Landry is in it, and they dont' bother us. WHy didn't they find you funny?? I do! lol

3) Can't believe that you are really leaving me!!! 2 months and change isn't enough time for you to leave me. Change the orders. I know that you are excited to leave and that it is good for your family but think of me!!! lol.

We fly under the efmp radar with -1up here since its an army run hospital and we arent army. (one would think they wuold care about the well being of the child but i guess their laziness is kinda our gain.) I keep challenging the people in efmp that the one thing I want they dont offer... to see the same doctor as much as possible without jumping thru flaming hoops. i mean with all -1's reflux, asthma, and allergy issues i hate to repeat the whole long story time and time again.

Oh man! I'm sorry to hear that you got so sick! I'm glad you weren't at home alone though and had someone else to help take care of things.

Hope you get the daycare situation taken care of!

Hope that family of yours is on the mend. Getting sick SUCKS!

And I am cracking up at second graders sticking beans up their noses. I work for a pediatrician and I can not handle it when kids have to come in with objects in their noses. I literally have to leave the room!

Ok, I missed what happened - Why did they want to remove Abs from the regular daycare? I'm glad that they reconsidered so she'll be able to go to the regular camp at this point.

And wth, Gunner has a report date with no orders? Is it safe to assume you're coming to the mountains?! I hope so!!
