Dylan’s new Superman Helmet!

By Jeff KingSuperman 3Superman 4Superman 5Superman1Superman2

This is Dylan’s new Helmet that was specially designed for him by some college Engineer students. I entered a contest and my essay was chosen we were asked what we needed for Dylan and we told them a new helmet. They asked us if there were anything we wanted special and we told them we call him Superman and this is the design they came up with. I Love the D inside the shield instead of the S

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving day Dylan sat patiently waiting to eat his turkey dinner. He was so happy because he was doing one of his favorite things.(eating) Sorry, it’s been so long since I’ve posted, but I have been busy finishing up my classes. The best part about Thanksgiving was that we had a new stove to cook the turkey in.

 

Question

This is to do with my son Dylan who has epilepsy. The school wants to put him in a wheelchair just to transport him back and forth to school. I’m the one who has to put him on the bus in the morning and it is not an easy task. The thing is he can walk and I’m not allowing it to happen. They claim it is for safety concerns but we all know they don’t want to deal with Dylan because he can be difficult sometimes but is expected from a fourteen-year boy. I have never been told he needs to be in a wheelchair by any of the doctors he has been to. So my question to you is do you think he should be put in a wheelchair?

Bus training!

The bus is coming to the house tomorrow to train me on how to put Dylan on the bus. I don’t think I have a problem putting him on the bus. I have a problem with the bus aids who just stand there and do nothing. They should already be trained to handle special needs children since they are working on a bus that transports special needs children.

I.E.P Meeting

Yesterday was Dylan’s IEP meeting and it was no fun for either of us. The meeting was supposed to start at 2 but, that didn’t happen because we had to wait for some of the attendees to show up. First of all, we didn’t even begin the IEP meeting, because they are still stuck on the fact that they think it would be best for Dylan to ride the bus in a wheelchair for his safety. My thoughts on that are NO WAY he is not riding the bus in a wheelchair because he is mobile. Dylan is not in a wheelchair at home so why would I want him transported to school in a wheelchair. They are claiming it is for safety measures for him and myself. I fell that they just don’t want to deal with Dylan because he can be a bit difficult at times. We can’t forget that Dylan is a fourteen-year-old boy going through puberty. So with that being said, In my opinion, he his just being a typical teenager. The one good thing that came out of the meeting was that Dylan will be reevaluated before the IEP meeting.

Bath time with Dylan/ being sick!

The bath part is easy with him, it’s afterwards that is the problem.  When his bath is over he just wants to lay in the tub and do nothing. So, I have to struggle to get him out. Then we go in the room to get him dressed and thats when the fun begins. He does not like to cooperate with you at all. By the time I’m done getting him dressed I’m soaking wet with sweat. Not mention he has been home sick all week, with this cold that has been going around. So, I’m one tired mommy this week. I told him he has to go back tomorrow and I don’t think he liked the idea to much. I have to catch up on my school work too. I love you Dylan my Superman!❤

Aggravation!

This guy right here is hitting puberty and becoming a typical teenage boy by not wanting to do anything. The school is after me again to put him in a wheelchair because he will not walk off the bus. I told the lady on the phone that he was walking on the bus because, I will put him on the bus and they can use a wheelchair to get him off but, that is not good enough for them, they want to come out Monday to watch him get on the bus. I am sticking to what I said because I believe if he gets in a wheelchair he won’t want to do anything again. He needs to get up and move around so the wheelchair is a no go.
