We continue to bask in the goodness of God and watch my son heal. He had a visit to his neurosurgeon and his pediatric cardiologist recently and both marveled at how good Ethan is healing!
If you see him, you have NO IDEA this boy had brain surgery three weeks ago. We started back homeschooling the week after he came home, but this week has been especially difficult, because he knows all his friends are on spring break. I chose not to take this week because we were out of school for 3 weeks and fell behind and although his school said everything will be ok, I do not and know for sure Ethan will NOT want to have school still going on in August.
He looks out his window and sees the boys across the street playing, talking, and laughing and keeps asking, "aw, come on Mom, just one hour", but I know that hour will turn into ALL AFTERNOON and then we will have nothing to show for the day.
We added to our everyday, normally busy schedule with more therapy. It is something he needs, but we will all have to do some adjusting for the rest of this year. Twice a week we will drive to the hospital for OT/PT therapy and once a week he has speech therapy. I can already see a difference. I know it is going to do nothing but help him.
As the fall schedule approaches, we are going to have to start thinking about school for all of them. Son #2 starts kindergarten and Ethan may possibly start attending a new school. I really would just like to get him in one place so he can "sit down". :) Of course DeClan isn't too happy his brothers may leave him, so he wants to go to school too. If they all end up in school, I am gonna have to think about what happens next for me.
For 7 years my children have needed me flexible and needed me home. If they all start school things will be interesting around here.
But at least for the rest of this week, we gonna press on with school and try to have some fun this weekend. Hopefully, it will be a quiet one.
