Meagan has been doing wonderfully at school. She started to ride the bus a few weeks ago and for the most part she loves it! She does not like the lift to get on to the bus - but I expected this. She doesn't like swings or carousels and things like that - so I anticipated that when her chair was on the lift, she wouldn't like that too much. I was right - she cried, she said "no off!" and was very unhappy. As soon as she was secured on the bus, however, she was ok. When she was securely in her destination, she was at peace and even waved to me out the window. I was so happy to hear this. The bus has also helped transitions at school. When Meagan gets on the bus, she knows she is going to school. She knows she is waiting to get out and see her teachers and friends and get started with her day. So it has helped her to get excited about her destination and have joy upon entering her classroom of familiar faces. This is how I found her on Wednesday when I went to pick her up:
Once we arrived at the ER, we went from check in to being in a room with all scans..etc. done in about less than 15 minutes I would say. It was apparent something was wrong. Even anticipating Meagan having problems arise, I'm always amazed at how fast things can change. I couldn't believe this girl in the ER was the same happy goofy girl I had just seen 48 hours before.
