IEP meeting, and updates.

So, today we had Carly's IEP. Nothing but a BIG waste of time. We have to continue the IEP next week. Not something I'm looking forward to at all. Nothing was accomplished in a 2 hour meeting. The only thing the 'team' wants to do is argue with me. I'm sooo very sick of this.

As for the legal part of it. I did have an attorney present at the meeting. I do feel this will likely go into a hearing. All because the stupid school will not meet Carly's needs.

I do have several other issues with the school that a judge would really frown upon. However, I don't want to get into too much of it right now. Lets just say, this school has stepped WAY over the line on many issues regarding Carly.

We could use a few prayers in the up and coming weeks. Prayers that all goes smoothly and we can avoid any court proceedings. But, like I said, I do feel we are headed to a hearing.


Carly is still home from school. We pulled her out due to the confirmation of Swine flu at her school. She did get the shot on the 24th. However, it takes 14 days to start to do it's job. Hopefully, she will be back to school on the 10th.


Update on Sarah, my aunt's niece. Her whole ordeal started on Oct 15. She is still in ICU. Still on the ventilator. She ran a temp of 104.8 (under arm temp) for one solid week. It is down now to 102.6. Sarah is still very critical. It doesn't look good for her. Please keep Sarah and her family in your prayers. She just turned 30, while in ICU.


Family issues, other than Carly. My mom is having some health issues. It looks as if she is in kidney failure. To what extent? We don't yet know. For what reason? We don't yet know. She has an appt with a specialist and will be having an ultra sound to determine just how much failure she has. Also, to see if it's one or both kidneys. Last week she met with the same specialist and went over some test results that were done previously. He did confirm all of the tests point to kidney failure.


My nerves are frazzled right now. Let's see, I have the school issues going on. I have my mother's health issues to worry about. Oh, and Carly has up and coming Cardiology and Oncology appt's on Nov 12. She will be having an Echo and the whole work up. I hate those
Echo's. They scare the crap out of me. I'm always such a wreck and just know they are going to tell me bad news. Then of course, there's Oncology. 'Nuff said!

Guess that's about it, plus my battery on my laptop is dying.
