Triumphs and Sadness

Today I heard that the trial period for Nathan’s Dynavox has been extended to 3 months. This is a great triumph because it will give us the extra time he needs for us to teach him how to use it so proficiently that the funding will not be denied. This has been a long hard battle and I am glad to say that we are one step closer.

On the heel of this triumph came the terrible news that Nathan’s Mary Poppins resigned. I can’t even begin to describe how devastated I am.

I linked to a post that Kate wrote a few days ago but not knowing what it’s like to have a child like Nathan. Well, it’s even worse when someone knows what it’s like and chooses to leave.

I’ve decided not to hire anyone and just do the best I can with him. Many things may not get done, I may not have the time to do all the paperwork and research that I’m accustomed to…but I just can’t handle training someone else and then having them leave. So Nathan will have to settle for the best I can offer him with what I have.

Onwards and upwards.
