The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated

After vomiting Monday night, GL missed the first day back to school on Tuesday as a precaution, but he did not throw up again. The rest of us had sore throats, runny noses, and generally felt crummy for a few days, but are pretty much back to normal now. And I am still way behind on reading my blogs. 

GL is doing much better on his new med, not hitting or threatening people. His reports about school are completely unreliable, and the school is not as communicative as we would wish, but the reports we have been getting are all good. He is asking repetitive questions, mainly about his birthday. We have shown him the calendar, and attempted to explain numerous times how many weeks and days until his birthday, but he just doesn't get it. On more than one occasion, he woke his brother up in the middle of the night to ask him when is birthday was.

It is snowing, and some schools have already cancelled for tomorrow. GL is confused and worried about his schedule under the best of circumstances, and asked several times today whether he had school tomorrow. I wish I knew one way or the other.

On the way home from school today, I noticed he was sticking his tongue out. I asked, "Are you catching snowflakes with your tongue?" 

He said he was. I asked, "What do they taste like?"

He said, "They taste like dirt!"

It boggles my mind why schools are hesitant? unwilling? unable to effectively communicate with us parents at our children's day. Aren't they educated people who only too well love to her their own voice? Sending notes home seems to be something that a teacher might get paid for. But, also and duh, it is in their best interest to develop a relationship with us and our kids. Otherwise, we are all in school hell. But they just don't get it.

PS: the meme is scheduled to post this morning. Should be up now.

I totally went on a tangent with that comment. Sorry about that. The blood pressure meds haven't kicked in yet.

We have the beyond imagination perseveration thing going on right now, so I can only wish temporary deafness in you all - only in self-preservation. Out of curiosity, and because I am really at a loss here, how do y guys handle the perseveration? Do you ignore? Answer? What can I try to help end this madness?
