Today has been a windfall of both the good and not so good. On the good side, Gavin’s first at home IVIG infusion went really well. Also featured on the good side today was Elliott and Emmett both having really good days at school today.
That’s about where the good side ends.
The not so good side brought with it report cards. Emmett did amazing, as did Elliott. Elliott though, did slip in a a couple subjects and we need to figure out why.
Gavin on the other hand is tanking. He’s barely holding on to a D in Math class and his grades have fallen in just about every other subject as well.
We have to schedule a conference with Gavin’s teachers and at least touch base with the Elliott’s and Emmett’s as well. While we want to connect with E’s new teachers, Gavin clearly needs a special conference.
At the rate he’s going, I’m concerned about him even graduating and moving onto high school.
This of course has had me contemplating the real world value in continuing to push for his education anymore. I absolutely believe in education but Gavin is a unique case and for a kid who only last night could figure out how to close the pizza box, we are likely fighting a losing battle.
With Gavin’s continued decline, I just don’t know if school should be a priority anymore.
