Lisa take care of yourself. Psillies having pneumonia is not good.

 

Yes ma'am. Spring break starts today and I have no plans.

 

Oh my goodness, you make my past health issues look like a cakewalk!

 

Girl! There's so much more to the story! I could write a book. The psillies went through it all with me. I even meet my angel Patteigh (who brought me gluten-free food) while in Houston. I still feel bad about that tearful message I left on Soozle's answering machine the day of Brian's accident.

 

 

You take care of YOURSELF (Patteigh, you too) and I'll do the same. Rob's prospects look pretty good! Keep us posted.

 

 

:wub:

 

Love my psillies

P.S. Vincent, LOVE the video and look forward to the celiac disease. Will email you about the Lost Wiki when I can sit at the computer for more than 3 minutes :wacko:

 

Look, I know you have lots of random conditions, but should you really be looking forward to them?

Yeah, to be honest, at first I did not make the connection either, for the same reason :)

11 year-old Son had negative blood panel, but went on gluten-free diet of his own volition to see if his concentration would improve, his temper abate, and his energy level would increase. Miraculous response!

I knew that but didn't make the connection when I read that and I was like... :huh: ...and  I was thinking..... well, that's our Loey! :P 

 

I prefer "that's our loey"   :) to our neighborhood label of "the unemployed-sickly couple." :mellow:

 

I have to attend an IEP meeting for the girl I tutor today and only had 2 days notice to prepare. Selia's mom is a lose cannon so I told her to let me talk. She's got a chip on her shoulder about public schools and has already gotten off to a rocky start with Selia's principal. The meeting is in the Superintendent's Office with an additional 6-7 people. I've attended over 125 IEP meetings and it never involved some of the personnel that will be here today. I know that having 2 children with learning disabilities start a school in March (right before standardized testing) is a teacher and principal's worst nightmare. The school is small and Selia and her brother can definitely impact the overall scores. Average class size is 13 students. When I was teaching I had anywhere from 19-30 (depending on the school). When I did Special Ed it was a smaller ratio. Selia was placed in 5th grade and she's reading on a 2nd grade level (and not fluently). She couldn't read at all when we first started working together. I feel for her teacher and hope the school will let me provide additional support. I would love to be able to volunteer to work with Selia in the school but have to be 100% healthy before committing to anything.

 

I'm approaching it like a practice job interview. My new goal is to get off of disability and get back to teaching in some capacity (like an aide). So, you never know what today could start. I can't believe how nervous I am. I also still have my "ladyparts" issue so that should be interesting. OK, time to read Ct. Core Curriculum Standards for reading. I spent Monday & yesterday looking up the people who will be at the meeting. I find that humanizes them for me. I know how to play nice within the school system but Selia's mother does not! Hopefully I'll be able to do some damage control today.

 

Thanks for letting me ramble. I'm also very excited about the meeting.

 

Sending you all positive energy, healing (((hugs))) and lots of love,

Loey

 

P.S. looks like DH might have a job. It's the one for Medical Monitoring that pays during training and then you owe them a year. It's a more stable and growing field that pays less than a pharmaceutical job but will have more security. I told you all that 2013 is going to be a great year for all of us so HANG IN THERE!!!!

Well I just retuned from the IEP meeting and boy North Stonington is even less welcoming than Westerly! Selia only tested at a D level on the DRA which is early kindergarten (she's 12). I did get to meet with the principal and superintendent before the meeting and evidently Selia's mom, Nikki, never filed the yearly required homeschool paperwork with the state so I totally understand why the district is somewhat freaked out. I was honest with them about her problem possibly being a poor homeschooling curriculum rather than a special ed problem. I didn't have the resources to accurately test her at home. I think homeschooling is awesome with the right parent doing it (like our Vincent). Nikki has learning disabilities and so does her husband. There is no way Selia should have been taught Latin and cursive before she knew sight words, phonics, decoding, etc. They told me to follow her reading homework when I tutor her but my offer to help in school was not met with warmth. I think it will take a few more meetings to break through with them but I know I will. This isn't about a job - it's about helping Selia. Nikki was less combative in the meeting than I expected but I could feel her fuming.

 

AAARGGHH!!! Thanks for letting me vent.

 

Love,

a frustrated Loey

GOOD LUCK, LOWEEE!!!!!!!

 

I know you are going to WOW them with your brilliance! Not saying anything about DH......don't want to jinx it!

 

I'm still waiting for this wonderful year of which you speak. Just got my car towed to the mechanic. It won't start and it's not the battery. We've already indebted ourselves with a rebuilt engine <_<
