Well Tyson's second day was not as good as his first. When I picked him up he said he loved school and was better but listen what happened.
Tyson's meds make him get very hot at times. They also make him have to pee very often. These are all things I told his teacher and asked her if she could pass the info along to his other teachers like art, music and gym. Well, I guess Tyson got really hot in art class and asked if he could walk in the hall to cool down but the teacher said no. Tyson also asked if he could go to the bathroom but the teacher also said no cause he already went at the beginning of class. Tyson ended up getting upset and layed on the floor crying. I asked him why he layed on the floor and he said cause the floor was cool I guess he asked again to go pee and when the teacher said no he ran out of the room. hey had to chase him and call his reg. teacher. I guess Tyson was crying and said I want to call my mom (THAT JUST KILLS ME) but they said no. I guess his teacher did not get around to telling the other ones about Tyson yet and all I could think of was what if he had a seizure! Jasmin's friend ran outside and told Jazz and she ran in and made him better. I guess once the art teacher found out it was medication related he felt bad and made Tyson a fan to use and let him be the special helper. I decided to tell them all myself with this letter. Tell me what you all think. Be honest
To Tyson’s Teachers:
I wanted to make everyone aware that Tyson has epilepsy. Due to his condition, Tyson has not been in playgroups or daycares, because we tried wherever possible to lessen the chance of exposure to a virus. This is Tyson’s first time in a controlled atmosphere, interacting with other children.
Tyson is currently on medication, and while it doesn’t entirely eliminate the chance of a seizure, it does considerably lessen the chance. Some of the side effects of Tyson’s medication are severe mood swings, getting over emotional, feeling too hot, and having to go to the bathroom very often.
If you could please take these side effects into consideration, and allow Tyson more bathroom breaks, a chance to cool down if he feels too hot, and a little leniency with the mood swings, I would greatly appreciate it. We have another appointment with Tyson’s doctors next month, where we can see if there are any alternatives to the medication he is currently on. I will keep you all updated. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call us at (262)
I really hope today went better. This is so hard having a stranger care for your child who does not know everything about them. I am glad he was still excited to go back today but so worried that this could happen again I thought about buying those little fans that you wear around your neck or something? Any idea's on what I can do to keep my little man cool?
Also would you be mad or say anything to the art teacher or just let it go? I know he did not know and I told Tyson today if he is hot to say I take medication for seizures and it makes me really hot. We practiced where I played the teacher so I think he has it down. I hope any teacher would take that more serious than just a kid saying they are hot. My poor baby I wish he never had epilepsy.
