Since I love my loyal readers, I will spare you all I learned about bladders, kidneys and ureters on our visit to Madeline's urologist yesterday. I'll just leave it at this: Swollen kidneys; agressive, but not to aggressive, dealing with it; Ditropan t.i.d. (bladder relaxant three times a day); cath 4 x day (we were doing three); UTI not gone; new antibiotic t.i.d.
So anyway, I was just writing Maddy's new schedule--here's today's:
9:15 all meds (now 4, plus she has a fever, so Advil too)
9:15 feeding pump (first feed, I mix everything up, get a new bag, etc, so it takes a bit longer).
12:15 feeding pump
3:15 two meds
9:15 all meds
On Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday she has therapies, and I need to incorporate a little therapy every day on my own. We rarely get through a week without at least one doctor appointment. She was just approved to add Speech therapy. We've been approved to feed baby food and drink from a nosey cup. She sometimes is on a breathing treatment schedule.
So this is an SOS to anyone who homeschools and/or has a child with special needs. I need ideas on putting together my days, especially when we start homeschooling in a week or two. I am doing Abeka with Carli, and it shouldn't take all day, but I would like to add some structured/creative activities for Olivia too. I can start Maddy's schedule a little earlier so that I'm not trying to do breakfast, start homeschool and do all the beginning of the day stuff with Maddy.
I'm super excited to get started, but if anybody has any ideas for me to organize my days, including morning routines, I'd appreciate it! I love structure, but this is stretching my brain a bit. I know it's not more than most of you deal with--babies just take work, toddlers need entertained during homeschool. But it's all new to me! Help!
