Well we survived the weekend.
Saturday included a trip to Urgent Care as recommended by the CPS investigator.
Homeboy (my hubby came up with that one...) is not too healthy. A lot of his problems have to do with an unclean living environment. So we are currently treating his ENTIRE body for ringworm. Oh joy! And he also had lice. He got a haircut -- medically necessary -- and we doused him yesterday and today with all the lice stuff the dr. gave us... not to mention the shampoo and stuff I bought at Target. And just to be on the safe side we are treating everyone in the family. With all this contagious buggy stuff floating around my skin is crawling! I am a total wimp!
So me and my medical administration sheets and locked closet are becoming acquainted again. I really hate keeping track of all this stuff! I don't have near the amount of "rules" that other foster moms out there have -- but sometimes I just can't help but think some stuff isn't normal for the kiddos or me the foster mama!
He did take two naps today and played well with my boys. (Yes, I am worried about them getting the ring worm too. I recommend buying stock in Lysol's parent company... cause we now own a BUNCH of the product!) He doesn't seemed to be missing his family much. Which is worrisome folks.
I already have a
long list of concerns to share with his case manager, developmental specialist, pediatrician and whoever else will listen.
Oh, and I think his hearing is not up to par. Like really -- I am worried. Poor little guy.
Every child deserves love. I can't imagine how things escalate to the point where children are neglected to an extreme like this. So, so sad.
