I emailed Home Owner yesterday. I told her Daughter has an appointment with her primary care doctor Friday, and asked if she would be attending, if she wasn't, I wondered if she had any questions or concerns I should raise. No response. I included the Case Manager on the email, and she asked HO to respond to me. No response.
I will be picking up Daughter this evening, and according to Daughter, staff refused to give her enough test strips to cover her time with me. Last time we ran out, I let Daughter handle it. If we run out again, I will be getting involved.
These issues are wearing me down. It's been a hard winter anyway, and this stuff just makes it harder. I hope that at some point I will receive a response. I continue to struggle with the thought that it might be necessary to move Daughter. There isn't going to be a perfect placement. I know that. I also know that she has to have enough test strips to cover scheduled tests and any lows she might have. I find myself wondering which meal it is she wants me to guess how much insulin to give her. Her prescription gives her over 50 extra test strips a month. I just don't understand why there is this control battle going on over test strips. The last time I attempted to address it, I finally asked HO to offer suggestions. She did not respond, of course. I'm tired.
