Im so nervous right now, my stomach is in knots. At Frankie's last ISFP meeting, Early Intervention agreed to change his OT services. He was getting 1 hour of OT 2x a month. This was just crazy! He wasn't retaining anything, what 2 year old would? Also Frankie was getting very frustrated with having to sit for an hour at a time (the frustration comes from his trouble processing) so they changed it to 1x a week for 1/2 hour, GREAT!! Great except for some reason, his therapist, the one who pushed for this, decided she could no longer service him. So today, a brand new OT therapist is coming to work with him. Im so nervous, so many thoughts are running through my mind. Will she be nice? Will Frankie like her? Will he sit and work nicely with her? Will she be patient with him? Will she be patient with me? I feel like a little kid on the first day of school waiting to meet a new teacher. This is someone who will have an important part of my child's life I need to know they will click.
Family and friends always tell me how strong I am, how they don't know how I always have a smile on my face considering the constant curves in the road my family keeps facing, My little guy has had more to face in his short 2 years then some kids face in a lifetime. Yes they are not life threatening and could be way worse, but my heart breaks for him, and I have my moments, usually with only my husband and my mom, when I break down and cry and cry that its just NOT fair!! A premature birth, a birth defect, a vascular birthmark, and a developmental delay!!!(surgeries!) Its NOT fair!! ok so now I shared it with you, and it felt good to let it out, so now I can go my day continuing to be that strong momma with a smile on my face. Thank you my faithful followers for letting me vent this out here, wish us luck today!
Also wish us luck that Miss Ava behaves and doesn't throw a fit that she cant be in on the OT action!!
