Finally! Friday 14th March 2014

By | March 14, 2014

I’ve been in a bit of a tizz for the past month, ever since D got let down badly by our local GP surgery.

I haven’t blogged about details because a) it felt all a bit too arrrrrrgh! and b) I didn’t want to moan, I wanted and needed to stay positive. To hope that things would work themselves out.

Today, finally, we’ve come a step closer.

Both myself and the school nurse at D’s school have been leaving messages for the consultant at the hospital, trying to update him and agree a way forward. This has been happening for a month, phone calls not returned, messages unanswered and it’s been extremely frustrating.

This afternoon I had a call from a nurse on the department and she has gone beyond expectations. Because we have had GP problems, she is arranging for future injections to be done at D’s school, with school holidays covered by a home visit. Totally above and beyond, I finished the call really feeling like she cared about D.

And….I’d been playing telephone tennis with CAMHS for (blooming) ages and we spoke this afternoon too! A lot to update and we’re speaking again next week, in liaison with input from D’s teacher.

I was able to pick her up knowing that results had been achieved today and that grey cloud of afore-mentioned aaaargh! might be clearing!

As I said to T when I was gently updating him on what’s been going on with D, I will keep on going for them both. Next challenge is his school place appeal. In progress.

Speaking of T, he did me proud today. He complained earlier in the week about a bit of blurred vision but was adamant he did NOT need an eye test: “see that tree? I can see that. The lamppost? Yes. I don’t need an eye test”.

He grumbled and mumbled all the way there this morning but went in, did his best and his eyes are fine, potential for short-sightedness at some point but okay, for the moment.


I’m relieved that we don’t have to factor in glasses and getting used to them as well as secondary school etc and he was absolutely insistent that he wouldn’t be wearing any anyway.

We had our standard “best and worst bits of the week” around the dinner table tonight and D added in another category at her request, that of “funniest bit”. All her “bits” had occurred today, the fab SN soft play evening long forgotten but it’s always good to hear their “bits”.

So, a very positive end to the week, as far as getting stuff achieved has gone, I hope everyone’s day has gone well, comments/RTs/shares as ever welcomed, thanks for reading Jx
