Jordan finally started the CLIMB program @ Cardinal Hill today! CLIMB is a rehab program @ CH that helps people get back into school/work force successfully! This will be 3 days a week from 8-3 and she will get physical, occupational, & speech therapy on those days. They also do outings so the patient is in a "real"life setting. This helps the therapist & the patient see what really needs to be focused on. Jordan is VERY excited and had a great first day today! This morning for me it was like taking her to school for the first day with her lunch box in tow! I must say taking her to her first day of school was much easier than leaving her today by herself! At least her first day of school Taylor was with her!
Yesterday we saw the Neuro Opthamologist and it didn't go as well as we expected. Let's just say that we can't wait to see the behavioral opthamologist in late August! As I have mentioned before Jordan is still battling the nausea on a daily basis:( So, she is getting ready to have a ultrasound to check out her gallbladder & if that is OK, we will add a gasto MD to the mix of physician's we see! Poor kid just can't seem to catch a break :(
As a Mom right now it is so hard for me. Taylor, Cory (Jordan's boyfriend), & all of her friends are getting ready to head back to college and Jordan still hasn't made the decision to go or to sit out a semester. Mentally there isn't a question! Physically I just don't think it is safe for her. Does she know all of that, yes! Does it make it easier for her? HELL NO! This is one of those rare times that she is pissed off about her medical issues. Can you blame her? NO Does it break my heart? HELL YES! I wished she could be a normal 19 year old, getting ready to go back to school, hanging out with friends @ the pool or just doing whatever! So the big decision of school still looms over us almost like a dark cloud! Life should NOT be this way for her & I am being selfish when I say it is very unfair. I keep telling her & myself that GOD has a plan!
