Annoyed.

So back in July, Faheem was admitted in to the hospital for seizures from a fever we could not break and it turned out he had gastroentinitis (sp?)  We were in Texas when this happened dealing with my mom and grandmother being in the hospital. Fun right?  So upon returning to North Carolina I made a follow up appointment with his pediatrician (whom I love but I'm annoyed with the reason being is coming up). Now she cleared him on the seizures and intestinal issues but warned me to keep up with what they told me about him eating and drinking so that it doesn't happen again. Fine. We're done close that chapter. My baby is fine I can stop worrying. 

So fast forward to March. I'm trying to get them into hourly daycare so when I have appointments and such I don't have to look for a sitter I can just take them to the center and pick them up when I'm done. I get the boys physicals and all that jazz done. So today I took all the info and paperwork back to CYS to get them enrolled. Well I could only enroll Tyaire. Faheem has to get another physical and get a specialist to sign off saying that a daycare environment is medically safe for him to be in. He also has to get a dietary plan drawn up because of his bout with the gastro and allergy to bananas (it's bad enough that he has to have an epi pen). The CYS lady also let me know he'll have to keep regular neuro exam updates for their records for the next FIVE YEARS before he'll be able to go to a regular dietary needs status with them because of his seizures (which he hasn't had since July) and that is still contingnent on if he still passes out because of his heat sensitivity (it will be 70 degrees, he'll be hydrated, and in a car with the air conditioner on high and he'll still be sweating (now that he's started sweating) and will faint). If we are still here when he is old enough he may not be allowed to play sports until he is 7 through that program.

Now I'm not mad at the CYS. I understand their position but I'm annoyed with Faheem's PCM because I asked her specifically for this sort of paperwork and notices and she told be it wouldn't be a problem and I wouldn't need it even if he was in school or daycare. I asked her about it again when she filled out his allergy report for the physical for the CYS people and again she said it wasn't needed. Now I have to go up there and do this all over again. Plus they may have to send for documentation from the hospital in Texas because there is a chance he won't be allowed in the daycare at all. {facepalm} I was depending on this so I would have somewhere to put my kids when my finals came up in July (oh yea HoneyBunches and Graciesoul (sorry is I jackup your SN) convinced me to enroll again) since my bestie will have a 3 month old and I'm not trying to task her with babysitting. I may have to put my school plans on hold again.

You would think since this doctor deals with CYS on a regular basis (military doctor with only military kids as patients) she would be on point with this. I'm just going to hope for the best. But I'm really annoyed.

Don't get annoyed, get something from CYS in writing stating everything you need then go to the doctor's office take up residence and don't leave until you have everything that you need to get him enrolled. If CYS (I actually was offered a job w/one in Hawaii and if my mother hadn't threatened to kidnap my baby we'd be there now!) still gives you grief about accepting him, then research local childcare centers in your areas, even check w/the school and see what they can offer and suggest in the way of childcare.

yea I have all the forms from CYS now outlining what I need. The woman was kind enough to give it to me. Though most of the forms had already outlined what they were asking for. Only one of the new forms is more detailed. I just wish people would just give you what you ask for when you ask the first time. It's not like I asked her for money. And I'm annoyed that she told me my son was cleared when apparently he's not. Plus I'm apprehensive about daycare anyways now I'm honestly rethinking my decision. I need to, I'm not going to lie he needs to get away from me and socialize without being able to run to me and hide. But now thinking about what if....My own dad messed up and gave him a banana juice. SMH. Nope. It's getting done. It has too.

Oh, and I go to school online and the school is in another state so school daycare is out. I might have to look into outside daycares. Hopefully they offer hourly. Last I looked I was looking like this O_o at the cost. LOL

Hopefully with the forms and letter being specific your doctor will get it right. Seems too busy to pay attention. Maybe find another doctor?

Military. I have to fight with Tricare and then that won't help unless there are doctors with open slots. Being that I already went that route trying to the my oldest PCM switched back to this doctor I know that slots are "full".

That sucks. I was never a fan of Tricare. I guess it beats other options.

I pretty much like it. It's just annoying when it comes to the clinic says A. and Tricare says B. or vice versa. But I wish they had more actual civilian doctors on base. I hate when Lt. So and So is made into a pedi and has no clue how to deal with kids and is obviously uncomfortable with them which is why I want the first doctor back for my oldest. She is a civilian, she's great with kids, gives good advice (exception of this one issue) and usually takes the time to really listen to concerns and review options with you (again exception of this one situation). I'm mad someone took it upon themselves to change his PCM without notifying me or my husband and I can't switch it back.

I heard that. When my ex was in the Air Force, one of the doctor's I saw while was was pregnant predicted that I would have both high blood pressure and gestational diabetes, because at the time, I was about 20 pounds over weight. How she arrived at that conclusion, I don't know, because I didn't have a medical history of either condition, and never have.

I used to call TriCare try-and-get-care lol

A active duty guy, went to the doctor because he was always thirsty and his  mouth was always dry. The doctor told him to suck on hard candy to produce saliva ( mind u, increased thirst is a COMMON symptom on diabetes)...few days later, ended up in a CIVILIAN hospital with severe DKA( keytones) he was DEF a diabetic smh, effin military doctors almost killed him. terrible. And education? PSHHH the retired people on tricare that go to the doctors on base think they just need to watch their sugar intake...not their total CARB intake..because their doctors aren't competent! Just killin people.
