Day 1 Back to Patching: Trials & Tribulations

So, Day 1 didn't go as exactly planned. We had planned on patching the 4 hours after school while I ironed out the details with my daughter's teacher and school nurse. I had to run back over to the doctor to get detailed instructions for the school and "permission to medicate" forms. So, after school it was. Except - after school she had CCD. Immediately my daughter started in on how she didn't want to patch at CCD. I explained that we could just do it after (and not get in the whole 4 hours).. after all, cutting her a bit of a break - its been a while. She ended up deciding to just patch at CCD and get it done with. After we got home from CCD she decided it was time to be finished. I told her, no she had only patched an hour. She went to her room and cryed and screamed. Ugh! Then it was silent. After half an hour she was passed out sound asleep. She slept through the night and woke up this morning at 6am. Understandably, it wore her out. She isn't used to it. It has been a while. It IS tiring and hard work.

Tomorrow is a new day!

  1. Poor thing. Patching is so hard on them. She is a strong little girl having left it on even when she was mad about it and you couldn't see her.
