Emily and Jude

Emily went to school today.......she wasn't to happy about it, but she went. She is still coughing a lot, but my biggest concern with her is her lack of appetite. She is just not eating which concerns me and now has Mike upset. This morning she probably had three bites of cereal. She has never been a big eater, but nothing like this. I am concerned about her body shutting down from lack of nutrition. Last night we did get two fajitas in her which made me happy. It was my grandmother's 80th birthday party and Emily felt up to going for awhile. I am glad we went because she ate the food well. I put a call into her school nurse to take a look at her today and let us know what she thinks. I am also stopping on the way home to pick up items that I know Emily really likes. Mike says I am catering to her, but at this point I don't care what she eats as long as she gets food in her body. She won't even drink the shakes now.

Jude was so good at the birthday party last night. He was quiet and just looked around everyone. It was so great to see family and friends. Once we got home I was playing peek a boo, itsy bitsy spider, and patty cake. He loved it and was laughing hysterically. 

Well the school just called..........Mike is on his way to get Emily.

I just wanted to let you know, Em would probably qualify for a temporary 504 plan with the school district if she is not feeling up to going to school. Sort of a temporary IEP or FMLA plan for school.

Mono sucks, but pushing to go back to your regular schedule too soon and cause some serious liver damage. :(

Hope she is feeling better soon! and you won't need a 504 plan, but just something to keep in the back of your mind. :)

Jude looks great!!!
