A couple a week’s ago Dylan feel and busted his chin open. We spent the morning at the hospital and all they did was glue it.
Dylan received a letter from Santa Saturday. Thanks so much Santa. I was a really good boy this year.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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!❤
