Better late than never I suppose

The boys and I had a pretty decent day yesterday. There were ups and downs but all things considered, I’m tossing it into the win column. I meant to update everyone last night but I was exhausted and didn’t get around to it.

My main focus for today is to get Gavin’s labs done and his Clozapine refilled. It’s been a nightmare trying to get his Clozapine refilled over the last few months. The lab never faxes the results like they are supposed to and the pharmacy doesn’t seek then out until I call about his script. It’s not their fault. They’re at the mercy of the lab. It’s just incredibly frustrating.

Aside from his labs that need done, he will also need his IVIG Infusion done today as well. He seems to be doing a little better than that lately.

I’m stressed out about this week because the kids go back to school and I still have all of our back to school shopping to do. I’m also unsure of how lunches are going to work this year. In the past, it’s been Little Ceasars pizza but I’ve no clue what they will tolerate in their lunch this year.

I’ve got a tremendous amount in my plate right now and I’m feeling overwhelmed. That being said, there’s no room for failure and I refuse to fail.

    Maybe involve the boys in preparing their lunches and what they would like to take. Maybe Elliott could spearhead this as he is wanting more independence and responsibility. I can’t imagine sending Little Caesers pizza every day is easy on the food budget and them having to eat it cold to boot.

    1. Weirdly enough, they prefer the pizza and eating it cold. I think we’re going to look into baking our own pepperoni rolls. They seem excited about that and it’s healthier and they can be a part of it..

    What have the boys been eating during the summer lunches?

    1. It’s not the same thing. I can cook for them at home. Whatever I pack for them has to be able to stored in a lunch box and many of the things we eat at home are incompatible with that.

        I gotcha, I didn’t know, most schools now have microwaves kids can use for things like that

        1. Unfortunately, we don’t have access to one at school.
