So much for multitasking and achieving — the point of my email was to ask you to bring home the meds and the eye drops.

I feel surprisingly normal after so little sleep.

Thank you Sr. Tech Writer. A very comprehensive report so early in the morning and after a terrible night.

Hello :-)

  • Gave Tau all his meds this a.m. and managed to get to daycare on time with all the right meds and forms — whoa … watch me multi task and achieve!
  • Did not take the corticosteroid into daycare as he only needs that one once a day and I gave it to him this morning.
  • They will give him the Albuterol and the antibiotic at lunch time, and the eye drops both at lunch time and at afternoon snack.
  • The forms I filled out at daycare have all the right dates stating when each medication should stop.
  • J– made photocopies of the side-effect sheets. I will bring the originals home. I think we should start a binder with what he is diagnosed with when and what medication he takes, so that we can refer back to it when we see doctors in future. When I was at the doctor this week with him, I found it hard to remember exactly when he was last on the inhaler, and I think keeping a record of that stuff would help.
  • I also put a sticky on his daily sheet stating when he should get what so the teachers in the room are all aware. We can adjust/replace details on the sticky as each medication finishes.
  • His new blue juice bottle is in my car again so don’t hunt for it when you get home.
