I just got a phone call a little while ago from our absentee Service Coordinator. She said that she received the second report from the therapist we saw again a couple weeks ago (last week??) through our insurance company for feeding evaluation. She said that Finn has now been approved for one hour a week of OT - woot! She told me that she's really been struggling with the powers-that-be to get him approved for this additional therapy and she's glad that it finally paid off. I just wanted to laugh - I think she's full of crap. Or maybe she really has been pushing to get this approved for him, but she sure hasn't communicated with me about it AT ALL. Whatever . . . now he's been approved, and I guess that's what matters.
She told me that the Occupational Therapist - a he, apparently - should be contacting me by next week to get started. Michael is scheduled for surgery next Tuesday, so I'm not sure next week will be a good time to start this, we'll have to see.
Is it weird that the OT is a he? I mean, not weird, but I just wasn't expecting that. I guess I just expect therapists who work with babies and toddlers to be women - like, what man would even want to? Michael says I'm being being biased and buying into gender stereotypes. He also said, "You're being very narrow minded. Typical for a woman."
Adieu - After more than two years and 555 posts (556 counting this one!), I'm saying goodbye to Adventures in Motherhood. I'm ready for a change, and I've started ...
