2nd day of school

Brayden had his 2nd day of school (remember he only goes Mon, Tues and Thurs).

I must say my heart was beating a little faster today because today was NOT a day that his nurse goes with him to school.

Would he be okay? Will he scream and cry? Will the school remember all of his medical needs and his personality quirks?

As we were loading for the bus in the early morning, he decided to vomit all over the place. Yellowish green stomach bile covering anything around and then a few minutes after that settled down he went into a nice seizure. I was worried the bus driver would not take him but she assured me he was in good hands. They loaded him up and off he went.

The phone did not leave my side from the moment he got on the bus until I saw him this afternoon.

A couple hours into school the phone rings. My heart pounds out of my chest and I am ready to grab my car keys to head to the school.

No problem at school, just that his feeding pump was not turning on. I told them not to worry about it and we would figure it out at home (the battery was low).

Brayden arrived home in different clothes (guessing a bit more vomit). His report was good, only a few moments of crying. He even participated in circle time...his favorite part of the day last school year.

He did great but I do not think I will ever stop being a hyper mom when he is at school. I am keep telling myself not to stop by the school until invited...

I now know that feeling! Today was Layne's very first day at school, and he is only going for an hour so far. I was a nervous wreck and burst into tears when we dropped him off.

I am so glad that you have such a great school to send him to where they clearly love and understand his needs.(even the bus!) Praise the Lord and I am glad that he is responding to circle time. I will let the kids know that he is back in school so they can pray for his safety while he is away from you and that you can enjoy the break without the worry! Love you guys!

Hey Carrie,
Just getting caught up on your blog; so glad that Brayden has his nurse with him - I know that feeling! :) I had to laugh at our parallel lives; we also have a second grader, a kindergartener, and one in special needs preschool! Even though we have never met in person I feel as if I know you - you are in my prayers tonight...One day at a time! :)
