Back to school !?!

Josh went back to school Wednesday. Half-day. Bonnie dropped him at 8:15 and he stayed through lunch. I guess he did a show and tell. I’d have liked to be a fly on the wall. He’s got a lot to show and tell. It was exciting, delighting, dramatic, ecstatic. Funny and happy and …

It kicked his butt. I think he got through it on adrenaline and then the adrenaline let-down just left him wiped out that night and most of Thursday. His spirit is oh, so willing; but the flesh--hasn’t developed the stamina yet. I think the half-day is a good start, but only on an every other day basis as he just needs a day to recover right now. As it is, he’s got an appointment for a follow-up at the eye clinic today and the onco clinic on Monday, so it will be Tuesday before he goes back again.

He did get up about 11 a.m. yesterday and go to physical therapy and then rested again in the afternoon. He did some homework in the afternoon and was feeling a little better by the evening. He’s getting there.
