I'm a single black mother that is raising a wonderful lil boy!!!
Hello blog family. I am so happy it's the weekend. This has been a rough week for me with this freaking tendanitis!!!! The work comp Dr. suggested that I don't use my right hand at work. So guess what that means....I have to freaking type with my left hand only!!! This was hard as hell. Then the pain still didn't subside so he suggest I stop going to therapy and go to the work comp hand specialist. So I see him yesterday and he diagnosed with my the "special named" tendanitis. Then he's like I'm going to give you a shot of coritzone and you can go home for the rest of the day. I'm like huh? He's like yeah cuz you might feel numbness and pain in your hand. So I'm like ok. Well he gives me the shot almost near my wrist and I heard this big pop and then he's like yeah that's a good thing. Then my freaking hand went numb. So then as I was going to get up the nurse told me to sit down cuz I didn't look right. So I sat there and I'm like man I live a block away, I'm going home. The nurse called my supervisor and told her what happened and that I won't be back to work.
I went home and did something I haven't done in a long time....TAKE A NAP!!! Man my son never lets me take a lil snooze. He's always coming up to me and waking me up. That was great. Then when I got up, I felt some REAL ASS PAIN!!! I get up and pick my son up from school and stopped and got us some dinner. It was sooooo bad that I had to put ice on it to relieve some of that pain. When I went to bed, I ended up doubling my dose of pain medication!!! Man did I sleep GOOOOOOOODDDDDD!!!!
But what's good is he gave me the permission to use my right hand again, I just can't lift no more than 5 pounds with the right hand. I'm glad cuz I feel like a freaking handicap only depending on my left. But my supervisor told me not to start until mid next week cuz the coritizone contains numbing medicine and I might over do it. So she told me to take it easy over the weekend and for a couple of more days at work, then start typing and keying again.
So this week is the week that my son was to start with the speech therapist and the other teacher. I really wasn't sure what day he was supposed to start but the director's secretary told me it would be Wednesday but she wasn't sure cuz she needed to confirm it with the bus company. Once she did that, she was to call me back. So I'm talking to my son's teacher at the Head Start and I'm telling her what I know, which wasn't much. So she suggested that I feed my son some breakfast just in case they come on Wednesday. So I drop him off at about 7:15 that morning and head off to work. About 8:30am I called the Head Start to see if anyone picked him up. NOPE!!!! Ok so maybe today wasn't the day. I took my break and had to go home to get something I left behind. I get home and look at my caller id and it's the bus company calling. They didn't leave a message and so I call the number back. Here's how the conversation went.
Me: Were you guys supposed to pick my son up today?
Bus service: Yes but he wasn't there.
Me: Excuse me, yes he was, he's been there since 7:15AM!!! How come you didn't call the school and tell them you were there and that you were there to pick him up?
Bus service: We only had your home phone number.
Me: I gave the school my cell number, my home phone, my work phone, and the school. How come you only have the home?
Bus service: Well can I get your cell and then I can put it on file.
Me: Fine my cell phone number is blah blah blah.
So when I get back to work, I'm on fire!!! I call the director and left her a nice message and I called the director's secretary and left pretty much the same message of how they're failing to communicate with me and his Head Start school teachers and how the bus company only had my freaking home phone number when I gave all of my phone numbers out.
So then the secretary calls me back and is apologizing about the bus company and kept asking the company how come they just didn't go in the school to see if my son was there. They just stopped in front of the school and then left when they didn't see a kid.
So then on Thursday, I get my son there at like 8am. He's all set to go and I go to work. Around 8:30am I call the Head Start and see if this time they got it right and he's still there. YOU GOTTA BE SHITTING ME!!! Yep he's still here. So I get on the phone with the bus company and she's like we went to such and such school on such and such street and they never heard of your son. I'm like 1st of all, that's not even the right school. And again if you couldn't find him, why didn't I nor the school get a call? By this time she's stuttering for words and I'm like he's at this school and such and such is the address. So they sent a 2nd bus to come back and get him. He got there but he was a lil late.
Today it all went smoothly....FINALLY!!! But this has to be the DUMBEST bus service I've ever seen in my life. My goodness, how come you can't pick up a phone andcall when you can't find the school?
So anyways.....his teacher at the 2nd school gave me a copy of the handbook and I found her email address in there and emailed her. She responded this morning telling me how she sees some of things we discussed in his evaluation. It sounded like she was a lil stressed but up for the challenge. So I'm glad to see her giving him the help he needs. Hopefully I will be speaking to the speech therapist soon. I will keep you all posted on his progress.
Well I have to go get a shower and get into bed. I have to wake up at 4am to go get my hair done.
