On an unrelated note, the evaluation team that was going to meet with us on Monday called. I found out, much to my surprise, that we were to take Tyoma to Manchester for an evaluation and that the whole process could top three hours.
I was astonished. I expected a shorter meeting at our home. In fact, one of the specialists was supposed to pay us a home visit last November (but never did). Sigh. Anyway, out appointment was late enough in the afternoon that I rescheduled for June 12 at 8:30 a.m.
E was in the room with me when I called to reschedule. Wild hand waving commenced to calm me down as I spoke. I can be shrill and unintelligible when rattled. I was pissed that nobody took five minutes to let me know what to expect.
The specialist said she would call me Monday/Tuesday and meet Tyoma and me in person. She had that lazy-bored tone of voice that suggested she won’t follow through unless pestered. Getting caught by surprise is embarrassing, but all of Tyoma’s other evaluations have been here, so I just assumed. Sigh.
