Know When To Fold Them
Well, after talking to everyone in authority under the sun, I have decided to give up the good fight and give in. The law is the law.....statewide, and there is nothing we can do about it. The head nurse of our county called me and explained that we are not the first people this has happened to and we won't be the last. I told her the hard part was the "eight weeks". Imagine if it was eight days, was her reply. That has happened before. Something else to thank our legislators for. They voted it into effect. I made an appointment for Monday at 9, which the doctor promptly cancelled today when I took G in for his ear infection and 104.2 temperature. She said there was no way he would pass a hearing test right now. She rescheduled everything for the 25th, so she could recheck his ear the same day. The principle said they could stay in school as long as an appointment was made, even if it was after the cut-off date.
