What a crazy-filled day I had. I usually try not to plan or schedule anything on Mondays, as I need the day to recoup from the weekend. But I had to get up at 6:30 this morning, make myself presentable (which seems to take twice as long as it used to) and drive the kids to school at 7:30. I had an appointment at the school at 7:45 and although it's way too early for me, I was SO glad to be a part of the meeting. I met with the resource teacher and almost all of Josiah's teachers before school to discuss how Josiah learns best. We came up with a plan to alter some of his homework to be more efficient and hopefully remedy some of his test-taking anxiety. Everyone is in agreement that it's most important that Josiah learns the material instead of just doing busy work that takes him 3 times as long to do and doesn't teach him the way he learns best. Hopefully he won't continue to have hours of homework each night. And even better....I won't have so much homework. It's draining on me.
If I haven't said so before, "I LOVE Peoria Christian School." After much prayer and looking around, I know that God had directed us to end up at PCS. I am just floored that his teachers would take 30-45 minutes out of their busy schedule to discuss one single child. It made me realize just how much the teachers want every child to succeed.
After my meeting, I couldn't go home and rest (like I SOO wanted to do) because Dale was bug-bombing our basement. So I popped into Dollar Tree and then grabbed breakfast at Hardees. I had an appointment with my oncologist at 10:45. I arrived at 10:00 and had a nice little nap in the car before heading in.
Because of pain in my jaw and a noticeable bump on the bottom right jawbone, I was told not to get my monthly zometa treatment. Evidently zometa can cause osteonecrosis of the jaw. Also, because of my low red blood cell counts, I'm anemic and so I'm going into the hospital bright and early tomorrow for a blood transfusion that will last about 6-8 hours. Lucky me. Actually, I'm rather looking forward to it. I usually just rest at home all day. But tomorrow I'll have a change of scenery. I'll have my own room, bathroom, adjustable bed, tv and plenty of assistance —not to mention a free meal!
