I am very happy to report things are going very well for us right now. Some times when things go good for us I wonder when the other shoe will drop? You only get so much good luck in life? Ha! I guess that is kinda negative thinking but it helps me stay positive when things get tough. It helps me to be prepared for it when things don’t go well. It’s weird but it does help.
Anyways, the good news is my husband got a new job! He had probably close to 20 interviews over the past month or two but it paid off. His current job actually finally came through with the raise they promised. So in the mean time while we wait for him to start his new job he will make more there. The new job pays more than his current job with the new salary and it will offer more of a chance to move up. He a canceled the job interview was supposed to have next week but they really wanted him to stay in the running. He didn’t take it though. I suppose that says a lot about him. People want him to work for them. He is a hard worker and he really knows his stuff in his field. I am so proud of him! This will help us so much! I am so very thankful to God for seeing we are struggling and helping us work our way up to something better. Perseverance pays off!
This changes his hours so I won’t be able to get my younger son to TK (transitional kindergarten). They don’t provide transportation for any age at that school. So I’m homeschooling both my boys in the fall. It’s going to be a big adjustment and it will also change our plans but I’m so excited and it’s going to be better for or family in the long run. We won’t be loaded with money but we will be able to live inside our means now. I am happy and content with that. My husband informed them that he will probably have to come in late or leave early sometimes since our son has dr appointments and they said that would be fine. That is a huge relief!
My oldest child is doing pretty good. He has actually improved a lot since being out of school. I think since the pressure has been off, he has room to find his own footing. He still has his quirks but I can see him starting to come into his own. I think part of it is he just needed to time to grow a little. He used to be so sensitive to sounds and textures but its doesn’t seem to bother him much anymore. We went to see fire works for the 4th, he didn’t even need ear plugs. I was sooo proud of him! That is a HUGE DEAL! He didn’t panic. He seemed completely chill. He still has dr appts coming up. He has an MRI later this months. And they want him to go to OT because he has balance issues. He is doing well though.
So things are going well. There is an epilepsy event coming up soon at the end of the year. I am really hoping we can go. With my hubby having a new job there is actually a chance. We will have to save up but I think it would be fantastic. There are support groups and treatment discussions, safety tips and stuff. It would be really amazing. I really hope we can! This is a cause that means a lot to me. I want to raise awareness. I wish I would have know about it before my son’s first seizure. I wish I knew what to do so I could have better helped him! My hope and prayer is that they find a cure for it!
Thanks for the home school support I’ve been getting. And thank you everyone for following me! You guys have been great!
Until next time, Sage.
