Doing Nothing is Exhausting!

Tuesday, June 25, 2019

The day began with a sick dog and thankfully he has been okay all day, but I'm going to keep an eye on my sweet boy tonight and tomorrow. Ellsworth is going on 10 years old and is definitely beginning to show his age.

Next it was time to get on the road to Boise for Maegann's neuro-psych evaluation. The initial interview with the psychologist lasted about 90 minutes and then we were given a lunch break. That worked well as I could take her to Chipotle as the extra fats help her brain fatigue for some reason. Once we got back the guy doing the testing came to the lobby for her and told me it could take 2-4+ hours and off they went. With that type of information I knew it was just best to hang out even if it wasn't that comfy of a waiting area. It was right by the elevators, the chairs weren't made for comfort and was off and on busy/noisy as people came and went for their OT/PT/ST appointments. We finally got home about 6:30 this evening so almost a full 12 hour activity. Amazing how tired doing nothing can make a person! We go back on July 8 to get the results.

Now I'm just hanging out with Auggie in the living room while Maegann is in the shower. He hid out in Maegann's room most of the day. I'm glad Isaac was gone from 1-4 with Meg just so he wasn't home all day and the dogs could get a break. He tends to make them anxious with his quick movements and intimidating manners. It makes him angry that the dogs are afraid of him, but he doesn't seem to listen when I offer the "here's what you need to do" advice. Hopefully he figures it out one of these days, but it has been a forever thing so far.

Tomorrow Isaac will be with Destinie from 9-10:30 so I'll get busy on the paid work that was non-stop today in my email. Ugh! I do have a 90-minute massage at 2:30-4 so something to look forward to for myself. I need it as the usual spots are tight....neck, shoulders and back.

Received an email that the new puzzle will arrive Friday and here's a little fact for you--this gem of a jigsaw puzzle is approximately 20" x 30" in size. Yikes! Isaac's comment was, "Which window you going to try and find first?" Onry much....yep.

Tonight I will start the research about the counselor or social worker who Isaac told us about yesterday. I do know that he could have misinterpreted the intent so I always take that into account, but knowing there is truth in there too still makes it an incorrect thing to do/say. Those kids are protected from revealing medical history to anyone without parental/guardian permission, which they did not have and then to even offer the thought that they could not be good enough academically/vocationally is just wrong. We'll see what I find out! I did hear from the virtual school this morning and they are processing his enrollment.

    Understand exactly what you mean on many levels. Waiting around with nada to do is indeed exhausting. My #3 son stirred up the animals, he just seems (yes still does) to enjoy getting them going.waiting for results is stressful. Enjoy today's treat!

    I do hope that you get some answers about that counselor. I know that Isaac reads things differently, but I agree that there had to be something there in what was said. I hope that the results from all of Maegann's testing come back great! Enjoy your massage today!

    I suspect that there is more truth in what Isaac felt the counselor said than not it does not seem to be the kind of thing he would have come up with on his own.

    Doing nothing drains a person! But then, you are almost always doing something! You are amazing! Have a great and uneventful week! emoticon

    Glad you're keeping up the problem with your DS's counselor. Hoping for your DD's results to come out well and treatable. Have a soothing night rest.

    Hope you get some good answers for Megan from today's tests. My youngest tends to scare and worry our animals too. He is just too active. It's gotten better since he has gotten older.

    I really hope that you are able to get to the bottom of the issue with Isaac's counselor. What was the end result of all the testing for Meagann? Our do you have to wait for the results? Prayers for you and your family.
