Well, on the third day of school she refused to get out of bed. I tried to be reasonable - and then got cranky I'm afraid(!) - but fortunately Mr JudyA was home and he spoke to her about the need to push through at this stage, and that we were like her coaches there to encourage, support and help her manage and gradually improve. She did end up going to school, and made it through the week which was quite an achievement. And she went again this morning.
Part of the issue is that she needs to start taking responsibility again for self-care, ie. if you're over at your friend's place and you're knackered, don't just sit there and get even more exhausted - ring
us to come and pick you up. She did text me yesterday from her friend's house to come and get her but for some reason I didn't get the text for nearly 90 minutes. And the silly thing is, she didn't think to ring me, or Mr JudyA, or call home. She just sat there feeling tired
But it'll get better. There's a lot for her to remember and relearn so we just need to be patient. Also, the ENT specialist who took her tonsils out told me last Thursday that he hasn't seen tonsils that bad for years. They were filled with pus, and some of it had been there so long it had solidified
.... poor kid!!! Just imagine having all that toxic ick coursing through your system! I am so grateful they are no longer there! And knowing how bad it was helps us to be more confident that her body will now have a fighting chance without them.
Thanks for your thoughts and prayers
