It will be good for my kids I've felt like the last 5 months have been a time of upheavel for them. They have handled it well and never have complained but it will be good to get back to a schedule and a somewhat more normal life. We should get the boys books next week to start homeschooling....LOL me homeschooling....God help them:) Steve has to take two years of a foreign language and he has chosen Russian! I'm excited for him and he is very interested in it. Living for a few weeks in another country does expand your horizons for sure:)
Selah had a great day. She was very attentive to us it seemed every time I talked to her she looked straight at me and even followed me some with her eyes. We had our weekly team meeting and we asked for her to continue on Ritalin. We aren't having huge changes but there are some small consistent changes we are seeing. She is on a very low dose of Valium so we are allowing them to double the dose for night time to see if that will affect her tone and make her looser (even doubled it's only one fifth of the dose that can be given! very low) It might affect her tone (for the good during the day and make her more comfortable)
Tomorrow we are taking the kids to St Augustine. It's about 15 miles from where we are staying. We've always wanted to take them to the oldest city in America but never had. I kid around and say we have taken them all over the world but never made it to St Augustine:) It should be fun and a reward for them. The have been patient and so helpful during this time. On Friday, Jon is doing his "rooming in with Selah" where he will do everything and I will do it on Monday.
Today I changed her trach again and this time I did not close my eyes!
