After much prayer and anticipation, Elijah's first (half) day back at school was a success! Elijah told us that Ms. W (his special ed case mgr) told him he had a "great" day. We'll take it! He was so excited to show us a picture one of his classmates had drawn for and given to him today. He arrived back home in a great mood! We are hoping for many more of these days. He will do half days for the next four weeks and at that point we will possibly move to full days again (gulp).
I know I've said this before, but we are so grateful for Ms. W. She took time out of her morning to give me a call and let me know everything was going well with E. She told me some specifics, like that he was very quiet and attentive during circle/story time and that his classmates treated him like he was a celebrity when they saw him this morning. :)
Elijah even made it to karate tonight for the first time in almost 2 months. We're getting back into the swing of things! Yay! We are finally beginning to breathe again since surgery. I'm thinking there is a mathematical formula here. For every one day spent in the hospital, a week of recuperation is needed. Write that down! It's science!
Have a great week, no matter how cold! Brrr! Thanks for checking in.
