School – Continued

I went to wake Jessie up yesterday morning and she said her head hurt.  By the time I was actually able to get her up, she complained of the body aches, headache, etc.  

I spoke with the school and I think we will try to do Spanish 2 and Algebra 2 through the Georgia Virtual School system (a cool thing) and continue with full-time homebound on all of her other subjects.  If everything goes through as planned, it should help out a great deal.  I have to say that the school has been very accommodating so far.  Working with the school in Virginia was like pulling teeth!

The tutor came yesterday and Jes took a lit test.  She will take an Algebra 2 test on Wednesday and another on Thursday.  The girl can self teach, more or less.  I don’t know where this gene came from.  Clearly not from either of her parents! 

I also called the cardiologist to ask exactly what symptoms would be relieved with the Florinef.  I know, duh.  I either didn’t remember this from the visit last week or he didn’t tell me.  In my defense, Jessie has a multitude of symptoms, so I had no idea.  He said the dizziness.  This is going to be difficult to figure out because I think that she had learned to accommodate without even realizing that her symptoms were there, if that makes any sense.  

We have noticed that the color has returned to her face in the past couple of days.  When I say she is pale, I mean PALE, twilight vampire characters pale.  She’s been like that for over 3 years now and no, she’s not a vampire or even a vampire wanna-be.  So we see a difference there.  My very uneducated way of thinking is that if the Florinef is supposed to help her body retain more salt and liquids to increase blood flow and volume, doesn’t it make sense that she would be less pale?  Oh well.  Is it a fluke or related?  Only time will tell, I guess.

Sorry for the rambling and subject changes.  My mind is working that way these days!  Be glad you’re not in my head as it’s a very scary thing.
