difficult child has been on her Prilosec for a week now for her stomach ulcers. So far it hasn't been helping. She has been having intermittent stomach pain and keeps vomiting on and off. Yesterday I got her to come to school but she went in to the nurses office about fifteen minutes into her first class. She threw up in the nurse's office several times so the nurse sent her home. The school nurse says the Prilosec should have stopped the vomiting by now and suggested I place a call back to the doctor to see about a new medication. Also the nausea pill that difficult child was given doesn't seem to help at all either. So I finally got ahold of the gastroenterologist this morning and she is upping her dose of Prilosec. She is also prescribing a different medication called Zofran for her nausea. So I am hoping it works. My mom has once again over stepped her boundaries by contacting the school nurse and asking her not to send difficult child home when she is vomiting at school. The nurse has already tried to work with me regarding difficult child. Yesterday she kept her in her office for about an hour and let her rest. Then she attempted to send her back to class but difficult child felt sick again, so she returned to the nurse's office and threw up several times. The nurse really had no choice but to send her home. My mom thinks difficult child is using her illness as a ploy to get out of school. But like I have told her, I actually witness difficult child throwing up so I know it's real. Today she felt ill but I convinced her to come to school. She is in class right now and so far doing okay. She did come up to me on break time and say she felt nauseaus, but she ate a little something and feels better so far. I am hoping the new medication plus the increase in Prilosec will help. Ex found out that difficult child has been out ill several times since starting the new school and he got really mad at her. I explained to him about her diagnosis. I told him I even have a doctor's note that excused difficult child from missing three days of school last week. But he's not buying it. He had a talk with difficult child last weekend and told her that she will be going to jail and he won't be bailing her out. He also told her that he hates me (he took it back later and said he didn't really mean it) and that he disapproves of my parenting style. She asked me to please explain to him that she is not missing school because she is lazy, which he accused her of, but that she has been really sick with the ulcers. I told her that I already explained to him but he won't listen. So now I'm worried he may try and take custody of her too. So I am crossing fingers this new medication works and difficult child can get some relief. I just don't know what else to do.
