Wednesday's Activities Include: T's half day, gymnastics, clinic, eye appointment, dinner

Today was T.'s half day. Since A. was sent home with a fever yesterday, and the school has a 24 hour policy, R. came home to hang out with her while I took T. to gymnastics. Then we went back to his school for a clinic. Then off to Burlington where we arrived way too early for an eye appointment (note to self: it's a really short run from Littleton to Burlington). The appointment itself was 2 hours long. Yikes! T., like at least one aunt and at least 2 cousins, is far sighted, so he'll be getting glasses to see if that helps with eye fatigue. We had dinner at On [Edited to correct name] the Border. I also learned about saccadic eye movement dysfunction by seeing the diagnostic code on the paper (T. was melting down so I didn't get the full scoop from the doc, but we're due back in a couple months and I'm betting he'll be getting some eye training for this). This is apparently quite common with autism.

I'm now very tired. A. may or may not go to school tomorrow. R. may or may not go to work. I am desperate for some alone time, and I'm betting I'm gonna have to leave the house tomorrow morning to get it. I foresee a long walk in my future.
