I immediately e-mailed the Girl's school nurse, but of course she was still out for the summer. I called the Girl's allergist's office and explained and they gave me updated copies of what they had, but they don't have the school district's forms.
Yesterday, after my staff development was over, I finally got an e-mail from the school nurse that yes - I would need all new forms which she had ready for us. Would need them before school starts Monday.
Sometimes, policies just make it too hard to be a parent trying to hold down a job, you know? As fortunate as I am, in family health and employment, things like this can make a mama feel just defeated about trying to keep everything together.
Even though her work day was over and she was ready to leave, the school nurse agreed to wait for me while I zoomed across town to the high school and got the forms (the allergist's office wasn't accepting faxes from them because, obviously, their fax machine had been completely overwhelmed that day). It was a stroke of huge luck that this happened on a Wednesday when the allergist's office is open until 6:30 for injections. I rushed over there and explained to the office manager who was the epitome of kind about it. I sat in the office and filled out the six pages of forms and left them there. The office manager says that the doctor will sign them and they will fax them back to the high school today.
Meanwhile, I am still trying to distract myself from the icky adrenaline-spike after-effect feelings.
