Not a whole lot going on here.....actually I've been very busy getting some things together to try and help the hearing impaired kiddos here in Alabama (all details later, I have many irons in the fire right now).
Gage's surgery is scheduled for October 9 to have the little thing removed from his face. Yay!
Gage's ADHD is beyond manageable anymore. He's went to school several times w/shoes and no socks, even though I hand him his shoes and socks and repeat the instructions several times, he gets distracted and forgets to put the socks on, then we get to school and he's embarrassed w/no socks. Bless his heart and his grades are going down! He's brought home three D's which is so not like him and he can't focus on anything long enough to complete any task. His hyperness is still the same (he has his motor running full speed at all times) but his ability to concentrate or focus is just gone. I'm calling the doctor next week to discuss medications to see if any may work for him.
He does get bored with school work since the first six weeks are all for review. We will take him in the next couple of weeks to meet the doctor who will do his IQ testing to see if he's considered "gifted" or just plain smart. That will help us with school. School can test him but we got insurance approval to do more comprehensive testing so we look forward to that.
His hearing is still great and he didn't even need many adjustments the last mapping session he had. I still have hope that he will be able to go ever three months or so in the future and not go monthly like he had to do with his old ci. He loves country music now but still listed AC/DC as his favorite group on a school worksheet. He loves it when a singer says a bad word like d#m* or a$$. He can hear those little words in the song and giggles like a silly girl when hears them. Boys
Brook goes to the eye doctor on Monday to have her vision screened for the first time. She refuses to sit any farther than 2-3 feet from the tv. I know she sees well close up but I'm not so sure about her distance vision...?
And if you haven't visited Bama Ears in a while, click here....there are several new stories up.
And as far as the October Challenge, still only down a couple of pounds...eight weeks to go, I gotta really work hard(er).
