My youngest son, who is 15, has been having stomach issues for the past few months. He was diagnosed last week, after having an endoscopy done, with gastroparesis. This is a condition where this stomach muscles do not work correctly. They do not contract and push the food down through the digestive tract. Because of this he deals with nausea a lot.
We withdrew him from the last month of school in May because he had missed so much school from being sick. He has been doing summer school online, which for the most part has worked pretty well.
If this doesn't get worked out soon, I'm not sure he'll be able to go to school when it starts up again. I have thought of homeschooling, but I do work fulltime- 40 hours per week. And honestly, right now, I know I can't afford to quit, or really even go parttime.
Any suggestions? Is is possible to homeschool and work fulltime?
