John was invited to speak at a TED conference in California to give a professional development talk on teaching and help develop a short lesson plan for students. He got to avoid the winter storms here and stay at a resort in sunny Palm Springs. I was home playing zone defense with three kids. Mikan came down with some kind of respiratory virus that led to a fever. The doctor said it wasn't the flu, so he is just riding it out. He seems to be doing much better.
I am in the middle of organizing all of Mikan's special education testing for kindergarten. He has to be tested for autism again in order for it to placed on an IEP. Since we are planning on starting him part-time in the fall, all of his testing needs to be done soon. He also has several doctors appointments coming up and a possible surgery to close his g-tube stoma. During his illness, clear fluid began leaking in a steady stream from his stoma (which has never happened since the tube was removed in June). This is a sign that things haven't healed properly and he will probably need to have a surgery to fix it. There also is a chance that the lining of his stomach has been torn and he may need an ultrasound to check the status of that.
