The weekend involved a solid flurry of emails cc'd to many parties and then I wrote one more on Monday in regard to the sleepy Wednesday and tough Thursday and Friday Charlie had and there was a meeting with school district officials on Tuesday at 9.30 inbetween which Jim sent out a lyrical email narrating Charlie's challenges and lag with processing language and ---
I'm certain (by the evidence of my own week-long queasiness) that Charlie caught a stomach thing (new environment, new germs are inevitable) which has been addling his insides, very likely since last week --

There is a full-time behaviorist at his new school, they swam on Monday (and will do so weekly at the neighboring YMCA) , they go on what seem to be frequent outings (Wednesday, to a park in Benicia).
