Good morning Ladies,
As you can see there is no card today, I am truly sorry for not posting a card. My day kind of went down hill yesterday.
As most of you are aware one of my youngest daughters Lucy had repeat surgery on her eye last year.
Well the results were ok but not perfect and the appointments dragged on and on, anyway back in November they signed her off from the hospital saying that her sight should improve with the exercises she was given, we then had a further opticians appointment saying similar apart from that she may need glasses for long sight, but that would not happen until she had fully strengthened her muscle in her eye after her operation (as glasses would make the muscle weaker) so once again we were told to continue the various exercises that were given and Lucy would be seen at her 6 month scheduled check up!
Well, Lucy went back to school and she has some exams coming up that count towards her final GCSE exams, from here I am at a loss as far as knowing what happened at school, but I am guessing Lucy must have told them that she is still struggling to see ( which we weren't aware of at home).
I have received two phone calls in the last two days, one from our Opticians who said that they would try and contact Lucy's own Optometrist as requested but make take a few days and then I get a phone call from the John Ratcliffe Hospital stating that they had made Lucy an emergency Orthoptic appointment as requested to assess the level of her problems. Now I am sat thinking WHAT,!!?..
Who has made these appointments and what is going on, just bear in mind ladies that I am here in this house for my children to talk yo 24/7, they aren't 'latch key' kids who never see their parents, this has been the ONE benefit of being disabled, I am always here!
Anyway to cut to the point, the School Nurse and SEN were so concerned that MY daughters sight problems weren't being addresses proactively enough that they decided to take the matter on themselves, ringing the hospital to discuss Lucy's case with her consultant, after the optician gave them the name and contact details off Lucy's consultant! How can they be allowed to do that without
my permission ? I just don't get it, they clearly as Lucy informed me last night , think that I am not 'bothered' that she is struggling! Can you actually believe this? I am absolutely devastated I can tell you. Both Paul and I live for our children, we give them everything we can afford to give them!
Please tell me that you would feel the same, I can honestly say that I knew nothing about the fact that she needed this much intervention, she manages to sit and look at her little Ipod for hours at a time and sit on the computer, but it was her ICT teacher that was one of those concerned, Lucy must gave forgotten to tell them she spent 3/4 hours on the lap top some days over Christmas playing games!
So sorry ladies for the rant and lack of card, we came back from hospital at about 6.30 last night and I had to one straight to bed. By the way, the hospital found nothing new and told her as before to continue with her excersises, funny that, just as I thought!
Please comment as usual, I need your wonderful comments to make me smile more than ever today,
