From Kim's and my perspective it looks like withdrawal from one of the opiates he has had in his system for months. The last two mornings It has taken until mid morning before Jordan has felt well enough to attend school. Yesterday, he needed to come home before the last class since he just ran out of energy.
I so respect Jordan's willingness to keep trying...to push past his fear...to overcome the frustration of feeling behind. I don't think I'd be going out in public if i was unsure of if I'd need a bucket or not. Unless his body starts consistently cooperating - as it did a few weeks ago, he may be looking for another schooling alternative. We so hope not since we see him enjoy being with other people, feeling aspects of normalcy and just getting out of the house for a purposeful day. But one day at a time.
As I reread friend Chris' email last night, I was reminded from Deuteronomy 30:19-20 to choose life as I cling to Him who is Life. The last few days I had been feeling like I was simply holding my breath and was hostage to circumstances. Amazing again to me of what perspective can bring. It is a privilege to care for my son and to be able to pick him up at a moment's notice when he is "done in" - to watch him overcome obstacle after obstacle time and again.
