One of Jacob’s teachers, Mrs. Renfro, has been absolutely amazing. She is his Math/Science teacher, so not even his homeroom teacher, but she calls/texts a few times a day and has since his the day of his surgery. He LOVES her and it cheers him up when she calls him. Today she asked if he wanted to FaceTime with his math “small group” so he wouldn’t miss the lesson they were doing today and get him back in the swing of things. It was great...the kids loved seeing him and she would call on him just like regular class. She also “prepped” the kids about his having a walker and told them to get all their “old person stories” out today so they wouldn’t relate it to him tomorrow. And...she had a talk with them about the difference between helping and smothering. She told them his legs aren’t working right, but his hands and brain are just fine, so he is perfectly capable of drinking out of his water bottle and eating by himself. Haha. I am binging a pillow for him to sit on so he doesn’t have to bend down to sit, and he will have another chair to keep his feet up on. I think we got this!!
Please say a prayer for a good day tomorrow. It will be exhausting for him. Also, kids can be mean, so I am praying he doesn’t get made fun of. ☹️
Love to all,
