A couple of weeks ago, I clued you all in on the latest "Bonehead Move" HeeHaw had made, read here if you missed it. (You really need to read the back story). And yes, this all ACTUALLY happened. If I'm lyin I'm dyin.......Wait for it.
So let me fill you in on what has happened this week. As of Tuesday, the tooth had not been taken care of. Thursday of LAST week, Doodle was back to intense pain. I immediately called the dentist, asked for a refill on the Penicillin, and had it faxed to the pharmacy.
I had the kiddos all weekend, and I was all over the medication situation. She had a sleepover and we managed to get in all of her doses.
Doodle and Lil C go back to HeeHaw's on Sunday night. HeeHaw has been informed of the situation Friday morning. I in no uncertain terms let him know I would be making an appointment for her with the Endodontist as I was tired of waiting for HeeHaw to take care of this situation, AND having the final say in what was going to happen. Here is the response I get: "I do not agree to you taking her in, and will not be paying. I will take care of taking her in. You make it sound like a life and death situation. The only time her tooth hurts is when she is with you. Which leads me to believe you are feeding her information to scare her into going. I ask her quite often how her tooth is doing, and she says it doesn't hurt".
Are you kidding me? Where does he come up with this shit? And, who is he kidding? You "refuse to pay" and you want "to take care of taking her in"........ right. Like you managed to "take care of it" up until now? Well I made the appointment anyway. Hello, my kid is in pain. We had already waited 6 weeks. More than long enough.
The kiddo's went back to HeeHaw's Sunday night. No word for almost 2 days when Tuesday afternoon rolls in. I get a call from Doodle. She is calling from school and is sobbing. There is about 32 minutes left in her school day. I asked her what was wrong and she said she was in an intense amount of pain. Since it was still HeeHaw's day, I instructed her to call LL and see if she would come get her.
Doodle calls HeeHaw and LL is not able to come get her, and instead of calling me back to come pick her up, Doodle has to wait out the rest of the day. Walk the 2 blocks home, in pain. I call her almost as soon as she gets home.
I want to know why she is in so much pain. Has she been taking her medicine since she left my house? Well, noooo. Miss Doodle decided to "forget" her meds because she didn't like the way they upset her stomach. Really?
I tell Doodle what she can take, and anxiously await to pick her up at 6pm. Since it's a girl scout night I ask her if she wants to go. She does, and makes it through most of the evening. We quickly get her home after the meeting is over and give her the strongest pain meds I can. That takes the edge off but am I glad I made her an appointment for the next day (that I had made 2 days previous) to have her tooth taken care of.
