 All of yesterday was a C'MON NOW!! Clinic full ALLL DAY LONG then my phone and computer go down for the entire afternoon and part of this morning. I had to borrow a laptop from the counselor to do an online CPS report and of course the site kept saying my password incorrect and after going a few rounds, I try to change my password and it said "cannot use same password."  Today not as busy with students but now far behind from charting and answering tons of e-mails.

Today was a C'Mon. First yesterday I had a kid had a seizure and thankfully he's alright. But I was frozen because my AP took over what was going on because she was first on the scene and there was nothing I could do. He is okay, but I'm upset on myself because I was useless during the situation.

My AP came in today and we basically made a plan to make all our staff more aware of seizures and be more educated how to deal with them. I even made a first aid kid, if for some reason we have another emergency and I can just run with my kit over there. 

Then we were informed a child was diagnosed with the flu. So I had to go report it and do all sort of emails and such.

Thankfully it was a half day today, but I'm so drained right now.

I'm not a school nurse, but this is right up there with my MIL calling me and  putting the phone to her chest after asking, "Does this sound like angina to you?" Why yes, your crappy landline doth transmit perfectly the auscultatory notes of angina to mine nursing ears. 

MIL didn't have angina, by the way. I was treated to a long fart while the phone was on her chest followed by a hasty, "Oh my! It was just gas! I feel better now! Thanks nurse!"

That absolutely fractured me. The way that this was phrased just brought it to life.

Kid came in "I had a tick crawling on my arm, and I flicked it off. My teacher said to come up here."

Me: ... *big blinking happening* ... Oookkaay, well, there is 100% absolutely nothing I can do for you. Back to class.

Just had my 8th graders come with most fantastical story of brothers in arms and why his side hurts. His friend scarified himself to save him!

Basically, he tripped on a friend during basketball, he fell under basketball net, ball came down, friend jumped to save his friend, pushed him to the wall hard.

He's giggling with the ice pack and all I can do is facepalm all the time. At least his mother has a good sense of humor and told me "it's okay, my son is an idiot sometimes". xD

Mom: Why did you not call me to tell me my daughter has a fever?

ME: Because she didn't. It was 98.5. 

Mom: Well, that is a fever for her as she is usually 96.5. (when I asked student if mom took her temp this morning - she told me they don't have one)

ME: I have nothing on file from her physician stating that a temp in the 98's is a fever for her. 

MOM: (a moment of silence) - well, she has been texting me from class and I, ugh well......... Isn't school almost out???

ME: Yep, final bell rings in 14 minutes. And, she is not supposed to be utilizing her phone in class. 

MOM: I will just let her ride the bus home.

ME: OK, sounds good (but inside I am C'MON NOW!!!!!)

I am so tired of parents trying to check in unlabeled inhalers with 4 puffs left that expired 2 years ago for their kid who I have no documentation that they even has asthma!!!! Of course they are only bringing because their kid texted them. They would not have brought if I would have asked. 

C'MON NOW!

Y'all. I have to share this non-nursing related c'mon now. And its completely ridiculous.

Just some reference: our campus has grades K-12.

Our MS teachers have opted to do their V-Day party on Friday. No one really knows why and teachers don't really seem to know either. It's "just what we've decided to do". In the grand scheme of things, its honestly NOT that big of a deal. BUT (and there's a big but!), parents are frustrated and have started calling our admin assistant wanting to know why. Many of them have multiple students in multiple grades and now they cannot come to one or the other party, which ends up not being fair for their kiddos. This makes sense for them to be concerned about this.  Admin assistant then tries to ask why they've chosen to do the party on Friday (mind you, she is a MS parent as well) and one of the teachers told her "well, I don't have to tell them anything". Admin assistant tries to explain, from the parents' perspective, why an answer would be appreciated. Teacher refuses. Admin assistant eventually flips. Goes on to tell the teacher "actually, you do owe the parents an explanation because they're the ones providing your party with supplies. They're spending their money on this so yes, they do deserve an answer!". Teacher disagrees. This convo goes back and forth for a bit until the teacher just walks out muttering "this is what I get for being nice". 

Meanwhile I just sat there pretending to read some emails on my phone because it would have been more awkward to walk away.

How's y'all's Wednesday going?
