Random Tid Bits

  1. I wish I could share good news about my nephew Emerson. He's been in the hospital for seizures. They've tried different meds. Nothing so far has helped. In fact things have just gotten worse for him. His 2 minute seizures are now 15 minutes! All these meds have side effects.

    Little Emerson has needed extra O2, a catheter had to be put in because he couldn't pee - they don't scan his bladder right because it is shaped funny, he was blocked with stool, he's sleepy but can't sleep well, he his thyroid was on the low side, he had a fever, he got a huge rash from one med that they have had to stop. Some doctors are all about helping Emerson, while others won't even show up. My heart melts for their family.

    I'm taking in Emerson's 3 brothers this Friday for the Isaak's school Fall Festival.

  2. Isaak keeps getting papers like this sent home: 

  3. To me it's crazy to grade 4/4, but whatever he's doing well.

  4. Isaak got into Show Choir. I'm so glad he's taking his own path, and not following in his brother's footsteps. Mica did great! Isaak is Isaak. They are two different people with two different personalities. 

  5. Mica to is doing well. He got a postcard in the mail from his math teacher saying how he's doing so great in class. Mica seemed proud! That was good.

    It inspired me to talk with my good students, and tell them how proud I am of how hard they work. I don't think it's going to go to their heads. They worked for it, and deserve it.

  6. I'd say I'm ready for a relaxing weekend, but it will be a busy one: The boy's school Fall Festival with 3 cousins tagging along, an overnight with cousins, flu shots on Saturday morning, basket ball game Sat. morning, a friend get together somewhere in there (she's visiting), the boy's Leadership Camp Sat. night, and maybe Sun. will be a clean-up craft day.

    What do you have planned for the weekend?

15 minute seizures? My gosh, poor thing!

At least there's good news for Isaak and Mica. They seems to be trucking along quite well with their studies!

I send postcards to my students' homes when they are consistently doing great as well. It does help. I also make phone calls if one student has gotten a test score far higher than anyone else in the grade (which has happened twice this year), or they do something really above and beyond. It helps break up the disciplinary actions I'm forever having to do, and it gives me relief too!

I'm sorry to hear about Emerson. That's a long time to have to go through a surgery. And did you say the dr's sometimes do not show up?!?!?! That's just awful!!!! Hugs to him and all of you. I hope something gives for him soon.

Rosey, Yep sometimes the doctor's are supposed to show up to see Emerson, and they don't come. It sets things back, and shows that they aren't on his side. Sad, and annoying. He hasn't had surgery this time around. Just sitting in the hospital, waiting on different meds to work.

It's always nice to receive well-deserved praise. It lets people know what they are doing is right. I always make sure to give an overabundance of praise to the kids I watch when they do something out of the norm that I want them to do. I'm trying to encourage them to keep it up. :)

Sorry, Emerson is going through so much right now. He and his family are in my thoughts. <3.
