The kids have all started back to school. Tyler is in 7th grade, Samantha is in 4th grade, and Luke started kindergarten.
Tyler has his first test tomorrow. He is still doing well in school but will need to spend much more time at homework and learning this year. Tyler's AID has not been showing up and I believe is sickly. This has not helped Tyler and Michelle is working to try and get this issue taken care of. The school recieves money for the Aids and the position has not been properly filled yet. Tyler was invited to study in Australia on some kind of presidential scholarship. It is a great opportunity but poses other risks and obsticales because of the Dystonia. Any easy solution will be to have me go with him.
Samantha has had some emotional issues with all of the pain and dealing with the Dystonia. She sarted seeing a Phsycologist last week and she seems to like it. She is being fitted for an AFO which is a fancy accronim for something that means a brace. The brace will hopefully straighten her foot. She was very excited to walk a short distance last night after having her foot stretched. She was showing off. It really was awesome to see her so excited so my new goal is to get her walking some even if it is short distances. WE hope the brace will help. Samantha's Aid is good.
