In Sickness And In Cold

A quick check in since I haven’t posted for quite a while. Charlie’s third birthday in May is slowly approaching. I’m starting to wrap up things up and prepare for Charlie’s transition out of Early Intervention. Additionally, I’ve written my final post for Preemie Babies 101.

Earlier this week, Charlie and I spoke to a Social Policy class at my alma mater. Other than having to get up before dawn to do so, I enjoy the opportunity to speak with college classes. I find the students to be inspiring and I leave feeling optimistic about society’s future.  Hopefully, they’ve learned something from me. As always, Charlie was the star.

The temperature this week has been frigid. I don’t know if it was due to the dry air or just from being out, but Charlie has her first cold. Despite the runny nose and associated discomfort, she’s doing well and her lungs sound great.

Feeding, on the other hand, is another issue. Later this spring, Charlie will attend an intensive feeding program. I plan to post updates more during the program.

With Charlie being sick and the snow cancellations, it has been a rather laid back and quiet week here. I have no complaints.

    I’m so glad you got to talk to the college class! (Missed last November’s post about this). I’ve talked to early childhood educators about Jonathan. (He is also, always the star) and it is SOOO good. The feedback I get is terrific, and his story helps students understand. Glad you’re serving this way, too! Well done.
