Day 10

New school orientation

Finally the day had arrived where I was scheduled to go for new school orientation with my parents. I had been waiting for this day forever and was so excited. We went to the school and there he was, my new principal and vice principal waiting for me as my mom had already spoken to them regarding me. They took us straight to the school nurse to discuss my year in this school. My nurse was initially hesitant to talk in front of me but when my mom said that I am very well aware of what is going on with me, the nurse felt comfortable discussing the details.

Everyone was so nice and accommodating in the school and my nurse told me that I am a very special child and she will take good care of me. I could see the relief in my mom’s eyes. They talked about getting me a turtle pass so that I do not bump into kids in the hallway, assigning me a buddy who would help me throughout the year as needed like carrying my things if I am not able to do so. Kinda scary to think about that. I think I will be fine but it’s nice to have a buddy. My nurse also told me that I was the only child in the school at this time with this problem but she has taken care of 5 students in the past and they all are doing well. PHeew!! That was a relief to hear that she knows what she is doing!

It was fun to take a tour, practice opening the locker which took me sometime to figure out. I did go to the store to buy some supplies but it got very tiring after 3 hours of moving around so I asked my dad to take me home so that I can rest. Man! It is going to be little rough sitting on those tiny chairs for full day of school. But I think I can handle it because I LOVE SCHOOL!

It was quite a busy day which I could feel at night time when all the muscles above the pelvis started to hurt. I took my Tylenol and went to sleep and forgot about my blog. This is why I am a day late.
