  • You sound so very stressed. Relax, hon. Just take it easy. Sit down for a minute with a cup of tea and just unwind. You cannot change a situation by fretting about it. Do what you can for your daughter when you can do it and trust others to do what they can to help. Panicking about it never helps.

    Why does she have to miss school up until this appointment?

  • First take some time to just breath Mom.
    Stressing will make your lovely daughter stress take some time (maybe a hot shower or bath with some candles and unwind).
    I agree with you that they should've informed you WAAAY sooner (the freakin' inconsiderate they would want that done to them!)
    But now after you need to make a list of how to handle the school and maybe talk to the school super intendant??
    Keep records of everything too on how they handle your DD. In case you have a potential for a law suit.
    The having to miss school is due to a "School Liability Issue"....they don't want to be sued if something were to happen to your daughter on "their watch". That's why she can't go back until her seizures are under control.
    (For those who are wondering) :)
    Good Luck Momma!
