Time Marches On

Well, it's been just over a week since our visit to KKI. Since then, I've had a little bit of time to collect myself. We've been doing a lot of things around here, but that's activities -- not receiving buckets of information (directly). I think I really just needed this time to just digest everything that had happened in the previous 2 weeks.

We still have far more questions than answers. But life continues on. This week, Simon has gone back to school. He was dropped off on Tuesday and, despite crying while being led into the classroom, went in and did well for the day. And since his school is so close by, we actually walked back home. Getting used to taking him at 8:30 rather than 11 is going to take some getting used to, but we know we'll manage it.

Rachel's ABA sessions are also continuing on. She is starting to show a little bit of resistance, and I think much of it is towards a particular tech. She definitely seems to have her favorites among the techs working with her and she isn't afraid to show me that. But she has become a "snuggle bunny" and really seems to like cuddling with me. This is a change that doesn't bother me in the slightest. She also is more interested in playing (but having opportunities to be destructive will take precedence).

Daniel will be starting his school next week. After that happens, we should be fully in the throws of our schedule for the next few months. 3 different schedules for 3 different kids. This is what I've been worried about in the past, but now that it's here, I realize it's not going to be so bad. Crazy, yes. Exhausting, most definitely. But doable. Everyone (well, almost) has been really accommodating and helpful trying to make sure that everything that needs to happen can happen.

So, next major event -- getting blood tests to see if there is a genetic link here.....stay tuned.....(note that will likely take 6-8 weeks before we get any results -- just the action of getting the blood work done is our focus right about now)
