This morning school was two hours late. I left a sobbing difficult child at school at 10:30 and went to work. April 16th is becoming too far away for psychiatrist appointment. so I call his pediatrician to see if he would prescribe something. I got a call back from pediatrician stating I had to talk to therapist who needs to talk to psychiatrist to get medications. But psychiatrist has been out and the offices have been closed because of the flooding! So, I called therapist's office and explained the situation. Their office was opened today (after news said closed through Wednesday) but therapist was not in (good - we had cancelled today's appointment because of the weather - It would have been hard to take knowing I should have gone anyway). The receptionist would give message to both therapist and psychiatrist. I told her we were heading quickly to school refusal. Shortly thereafter, another person called me. He was working on the schedule for the rest of the week and could fit difficult child in on Friday - this Friday. Oh I am so thankful! We are going to see psychiatrist on Friday! This Friday! Woes be to the person who says this is an April Fools Day joke - I am not accepting it! The snow for Thursday and Friday has been taken out of the forecast. Now all I have to do is find a way across the flooded river!
