We spent the day down in Minneapolis today, another appointment. Toma does need glasses. Now picture this people....Toma in glasses....HE ONLY HAS ONE EAR!...
So we are off to find 'specialty' glasses that will some how fit him. I assume a band of some sort is a definite, and boy is he going to hate it! I really can NOT see him keeping them on.
In the morning we have to leave early for more appointments in St. Paul and then over to Minneapolis for more there too. I don't like it, and will be SO glad when the majority of them are all done. He totally hates going, and cries and cries when we turn into the parking ramp. The entire time he cries and gets so hot and sweaty. On top of it he has a cold right now and feels lousy, so being that he has no palate, the 'ooz' just comes out everywhere, his nose, his mouth, mixed with tears....yes, a mess I tell you.
Today was opthomology, tomorrow is Ear, Nose and Thr0at, and gastroentrology. Thursday is pediatrician to get ready for sedated MRI and ultrasound on Friday, with additional checks from the Opthomologist and Audio people.
I just like staying home....did I mention that?! My son Shane has to take off work and bring us to these because I cannot drive in the city! I have to bring Toma's baby cereal because he still won't eat regular food. Or drink. Anything. So he doesn't feel so good by the time we get home.
It's also difficult to communicate because he doesn't speak at all, and I don't know what if anything he understands. I sure felt sorry for him today. And I imagine tomorrow will be more of the same. And the next day. And the day after that.
Then we have a bit of a break and they start up again in July.
So there's my whining for the day. I'm tired and just want to go to bed. I have no news to report about the little boy we want to bring home other than he was transferred to an institution and is probably scared and confused.....and we still can't come up with the money. The good news is that I'm told he CAN still be adopted from this institution.
Why does life seem so complicated?
I'm off to give the kiddo's a bath and hopefully get some reading in tonight :)
