Max was up a lot last night and needed a lot of comforting. It seemed a little different than usual, but then this morning was a big indicator that something was "off." He was still sleeping at 7am...8am...even 9am. I cancelled our morning therapy, but finally I decided to wake up him for school.
Sure enough he was red hot and had a temperature of 104. Hmmm...he has seemed so healthy the past few days, so this is definitely unexpected. I am waiting to hear back from the doctor's office and keeping my fingers crossed that the Tylenol kicks in quickly.
He is extremely lethargic...again, very unlike my lil' man.
Meanwhile, we need to prepare for our evaluation with the DDD later today. We have our annual assessment for his Medical Waiver. The legislature is expected to make major budget cuts in the disability programs, including funding for waivers...so there is definitely concern. But I remain hopeful that we have a solid team who will go to bat for Max and his needs.
On a personal note...as much as I understand the need for these meetings, I am not looking forward to spending two hours reviewing all of Maxwell's challenges. Just not in the strongest emotional state right now to deal with it all...
