My son has completed his therapy, except for the Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy. That will continue once per week and late in the day so that he can go back to work full time.
But there is a catch (not a complete Catch-22, however) regarding his return to work. Due to his disability and the school fearing liability if he falls, the school will not allow him to teach unless he is in a wheelchair. I bought the wheelchair, so that is not the problem, but the school wants the clinic, or some medical professional, to sign the papers allowing him to go back to work with the accommodation of a wheelchair.
The clinic required our son to sit in a wheelchair during therapy sessions, due to the possibility of falling. Our son is ambulatory, but he can lose his balance and fall. Yet, the clinic refuses to sign the paperwork for him to have the same accommodation at work. This would be a pure form of the Catch-22 except that the school could care less who signs the papers.
So, our son is waiting for the family doctor to return on Tuesday to sign the paperwork. Of course, our son will have to bring him up-to-date and if he cannot convince his doctor to sign, our son will have to roam from one doctor to another until he gets the paperwork signed. He is hoping by the end of the day Tuesday to have everything approved.
It will be odd. Our son will walk to the car, drive himself to work, pull out the wheelchair and then sit in it all day, then put the wheelchair back in the car and drive home.
But as of this moment, we praise God for the end of the bulk, and expensive part, of the therapy. We praise God that after a bit of administrative paperwork, our son will return to work. And we ask God to work through the EMDR to completely cure our son or get him to the point of needing no accommodations and little medication.
Soli Deo Gloria. Only to God be the Glory.
