We've been getting quite a few calls from difficult child lately while he is at school. He is calling from the nurse's office that he doesn't feel well, can we come get him? Then we talk to the nurse. He usually is tired and has a headache. We know he has been sleeping in class some. Yesterday afternoon husband did go and pick him up. husband said when he got there difficult child was sleeping and he slept much of the way home. A little while later, he was feeling fine. Yesterday his math teacher was trying desperately trying to get in touch with us. She left a message on my cell, on husband's cell, and reached me at home(then when I got to school this morning I found that she tried reaching me there as well). She said that difficult child is not trying hard in math class right now. This teacher is the same one that grabbed difficult child by the shirt that one day. She is someone who should truly not be teaching anymore. Still, we expect him to work hard and try his best. She said he is falling asleep and saying he has headaches almost every day. She is trying to teach him multiplying fractions. I know my difficult child well and there is no way he is understanding the concept. He is using a caluclator but I wish he was learning some of his basic facts. Today we received another call that he wasn't feeling well and wanted me to come get him. Thankfully the nurse agreed he didn't really need to go home. After school he did fall asleep on the way home but was then fine. Really, I'm not sure what is going on. And, now on top of all of this I was in line at the grocery store and difficult child's principal called me on my cell. I was next up to have my groceries checked so she just said difficult child had a rough day and she would call me tonight. It's almost 8:00 now and she hasn't called yet! I'm trying to figure out if he is experiencing anxiety about math and thus the headaches, is he faking it? Is he getting recurring migraines? He used to get stomach migraines about the same time every day (a few years ago) where he would vomit every night at the same time-maybe this is like this only with headaches. Then again, there is the sleeping thing and he can't fake that. Keep your fingers crossed we can figure out what is going on with difficult child at school. It's been such a good school year and don't want things to start going bad.
