  • IEP, the ER, and ABCs

    I meant to update the other day with the results of Namine’s first IEP – not to be confused with a preliminary IEP – but we had to bring her into the ER. Things have calmed down a bit now, though, and I can finally catch you up.

  • IEP today

    This time it’s for real. Namine has had all the one on one meetings the school wants her to have had, I think, so now it’s time for everyone to gather around and discuss what’s best for her. That’s all well and good for them, but we’ll see how on the mark they really are.

  • Ear surgery recovery

    On Friday Namine had her ear surgery, where they replaced her ear tubes. They had originally thought to remove the tubes and leave her ears tube-free, but it made more sense to replace them. The new tubes will only last about a year or so, and they’ll re-evaluate Namine’s ears again when those come out.…

  • Ear surgery tomorrow

    Tomorrow we have to be at Children’s Hospital at 9:30 for surgery.

  • I’m all alone

    The fourth of July weekend is over for me. I’m back at work today, but when I go home tonight, I won’t see my wife or daughter.

  • One crazy day

    Today started, well, not like any other day, maybe, but more or less how we expected. Namine had another visit from someone from the school – this time, a psychologist – and from there she had a couple therapy sessions to attend. We also had a scare today, but everything is okay now.
