Drum roll please.......
The doc okayed him to go to school. Woot.
Okay, but that's just the beginning. There is so much that needs to be done between now and then. And SO much that Ben and I have to feel comfortable with and give a green light to.
For starters he needs to qualify for the program (which he clearly does but he has a ton of assessments to go through before they can technically accept him). Then it's meeting after meeting of making his own personal education plan and getting all the doctors information to make sure they can meet all of his health needs and blah blah blah blah blah. And then after all that, we (Ben and I) still have to decide if this is the best route for him. If anything makes us change our minds then it's over.
So I'm suddenly feeling a lot of stress over whether I'm going to like the teachers or the nurses or anything at all since I'm essentially handing him over for the day.
So now, moving on so that I don't have a panic attack......
We met Theodore's new cardiologist yesterday, and I like him. He said his heart is far from perfect (obviously) but there was nothing alarming. Mild leakage out of both valves, stenosis (narrowing) in both valves, enlarged left ventricle, and enlarged aorta. BUT he feels completely comfortable seeing him only once a year. Woohoo!
Pretty much good news all around. Makes for a happy (albeit slightly stressed) mom.
