Here I am getting myself all worked up again about Nathan's development. He had his assessment yesterday for Early Intervention, and they did determine that he does need help, as he got 31 out of 76 possible 'points' of development for his age group, so he's 'behind' age wise. So they are going to do another, more thorough assessment sometime within the next month. The actual classes would likely start in the fall, after he turns 3. Now I am thinking that there is a bigger, underlying problem, and that maybe Nathan will never be fully independent because there is a bigger problem we haven't found. Maybe it's just the post partum hormones, but I feel like bursting into tears every time I think about it, and do most of the time. Maybe I am jumping to conclusions on this whole thing and the therapy will work just fine. Did the fluid in his ears have THAT big of an impact to put him so far behind? I don't know what to do, I am so upset again. I know that only time will tell, but I want to know now. I love him so much, I just want him to be a normal boy, doing all the things kids his age are supposed to be doing, including starting potty training. I just want to have a normal boy, and it breaks my heart to think that he may not be.
