A funny day!!

My baby has a space at school every day now, so I have 5 days of peace and quiet each week! She is getting to be a handful on the days she is home...really needs to run around with her friends and burn off some energy!! I will of course have to re-do my planner, but that's a minor thing! I need to work on it, anyway, as she's started to wake earlier in the mornings which has taken some of my exercise time.
Bob and I went to look at a training centre for people with disabilities to learn a new skill yesterday. They had the perfect course for him and is a wonderful place, but it is a residential centre, so he doesn't want to go....shame, though, as I am sure it would do him wonders if he went, but if he doesn't want to, he doesn't want to!!
He has had a strange motivation since we went, though. We had a huge row when we came home about how he was reacting to the place...he felt I was trying to force him to go, when I was simply trrying to show hom the positives, but since the argument, he has been getting about the house and doing things...maybe seeing how the people at the centre coped has helped him in some way, who knows!
I went for an eye test today. I wasn't due yet, but I've had a "splodge" in my field of vision for the best part of 18months which I really felt should be checked out...I've been ignoring it so long hoping it would just disappear, but it hasn't!
He brought up another problem in my notes, which I have noticed was getting worse and his checks confirmed that...so he flung the name of a syndrome at me, started writing my notes in red pen and told me I'd hear from my GP within a week!
I have to wait now for an appointment for confirmation of his diagnosis and I'm trying not to get too worried about it, but that isn't always easy, is it!
I haven't told my parents about it...I usually tell them everything, but Dad is one of those people who has to research everything, and I know he'll look straight to the end of the list of causes where the cancers and tumours are...there are plenty of other possibilities first, so I'll wait until I know more!
At first I felt glad that there was a named syndrome, as I thought at least there would be an op or medication or something to cure it, but it's one of those things that because the syndrome itself is a symptom of something else, it depends on the cause as to whether it will get better or not.
I guess I just need to stop thinking too much and wait until I have more info before I try to second-guess the outcome!
Anyhoo....that's me for now, I need to sleep now!
