Today we went to see the endo that ultimately diagnosed my daughter with T1D, and HE was the one who told us not to go back to school until he got back from his vaca. So, that we did. When he came to the room, he didn't even remember that he told us not to send her back until he saw her. He sat down, looked at her log book, didn't ask any questions about it, asked vaguely how things were. I asked him about a carb range that she should be in, and he said (again) not to worry about the diet, basically we were to let her eat whatever and then correct with rapid acting insulin. Then I asked about what she would need for a sick day plan, and any paperwork that she would need to have in her files for days where she may not be able to attend, and all we got was "Call my office and we can discuss her illness issues then.... the school note will be after the fact". What does that mean? Nothing to put in a 504 plan.... nothing period. He wants the school to use the scale that he gave us in order to correct her levels at school. I had to ask him to give us a letter stating SOMETHING that they need to go by for checks and to release her to go to school tomorrow. He even told me that if the school/ nurse needed any information they could call him at his office. WTH?!!! They aren't paying him for his knowledge.. I am. Why shouldn't they call me, or better yet.... why doesn't he give me the info that I need so we don't have to call him unless it is an emergency? I am so pissed off, and I can't believe that his office was full of people... grant it they are adults, but how in the h*@$ does anyone even consider staying with him? Then, I had to hang out there to get a letter releasing her and the general info that he never gave to the nurse..... and I had to give a basic description to the woman that was typing it up for us so the school knew what to do, and then she didn't even use correct grammar. I am so mad I could spit!
