Thanksgiving update

Our whole house has been sick with a cold for the last week, and poor Nick was just miserable. He missed school all of last week, and missed his Wednesday therapy. We do have some good news to share though. He will be starting speech therapy on the
28th. That will also be on Wednesdays after his UW sessions. We also have a tentative interview/meeting with a therapist who comes to our house set up for Sunday. I have been on the phone with a couple people this week regarding getting this therapy paid for by Uncle Sam. It is through the respite care program and a couple other branches are willing to pay for 40 hours a month. But, the one that I am in will only pay for 20 hours a month, and will only cover up to $10 an hour. So, it will more or less fall on us to cover the majority of the private therapy. I left a message with Nick's doctor on Tuesday, but I have not heard from him yet. No surprise there.

Other than that, nothing new to report. He really has been just battling this darned cold all week. His sleep has been all jacked up, and so has his eating. He is getting back to normal-but it takes him time.
