Elliott is off to school while Emmett is home because of a fever flare. I’m really proud of Elliott because he did awesome this morning. Neither one of the boys likes going to school without the other but Elliott has been be very good about it this week.
Emmett is in rough shape but is currently working on his makeup work with Lizze.
I sent the school pictures of his mouth and that helps to document his absence. I’ve been stressed out because of these new truancy laws in Ohio but I’ve recently decided not to give a single shit about them. Here’s the thing – these laws were not written with kids like Emmett in mind. He’s living with medical issues that can often interfere with school attendance.
We’re always in contact with the school because we want everyone to be on the same page.
It’s more important that we put Emmett’s needs before an arbitrary law that is targeting parents that just don’t send their kids to school. There’s zero chance that I would send Emmett to school when he’s in as much pain as he’s in.
If there comes a point in time where we have to answer for these decisions, I’ll be happy to do so. We have documentation a mile long and several medical experts who can verify Emmett’s condition.
Life is hard enough on the good days, I’m going to stress out over things I have no control over.
