Ok, my dd was dx Feb 08, she turned 9 2 weeks after dx. I have been on every school field trip since. The school says either it is me or the school nurse. It wasnt a problem last year....... The 5th grade girl does not want me on field trips, does not want to call me from the class room with any questions and definitely wants to be more independent. I want her to be independent. I want her to be happy and be like every other 10 year old 5th grader without their parent on the next field trip. Ok, so do you have the school nurse leave the school of 800 children to go on a field trip with your daughter??? She doesnt want that either. What to do??? I can tell the next few years are going to be lots and lots of fun.
