Carpal Tunnel Surgery, Vaccines and School
With school getting ready to start I have been gearing up to get things taken care of here. I was just contacted for the first time last week on Wednesday by the home intervention teacher from the CCSD. In my conversation I found out I have to re-enroll my children with the school. I asked what I needed and I was told the children's current shot record and birth certificates. I am SO confused on WHY I have to re-enroll them since none of their or my information has changed. Since I have lost the children's pediatrician and moved to another doctor I have to find something to do concerning the children's shot records since I am not going to get them vaccinated immediately so they can attend school. I was able to find the religious exemption form for vaccinations in Nevada. I have to get these printed off and filled out. The biggest pain in the ass is the part where I have to get these notarized. I think I can get this done at my local bank. I hope...lol.
Today will be a fun filled day. I have to go and see the doctor about how my right hand has been healing from carpal tunnel surgery. It has not healed right. I still have a nasty scar on my palm. It is a red slice. One part the skin knitted together but the way that happened it make the skin pull so that is bothersome. Also I am still having pain shoot down my thumb occasionally, there is weakness in my hand if I try and turn things (like opening a jar) and it feels like there is a knot under the skin where it is healing and it makes the scar VERY sensitive (often painful) if it is touched. So I have a lot of questions on what is going on.
Then I have to take Joseph to the pediatrician. I need to rewrite a letter that states the children's diagnoses and get it up to date. The doctor will then look at what I wrote and use it for the basis of his letter. I want to see about getting a handicap plate. That will make taking Joseph around a lot easier. I have to talk to the doctor about getting a wheelchair for Joseph. Though Joseph is starting to walk now (just recently started) he falls a lot (2 busted lips in ONE day) and he is SLOW at walking. He needs a wheelchair so I can get him around in a safe and timely manner. I am sure there are other things I need to talk to the doctor about. Hopefully, I will be able to remember before the appointment.
