Last Friday while I was at TAFE, I received a phone call from the school to say Violet's eye had stated bleeding everywhere again. So, I left TAFE to collect her and on doing so found her with her face still covered in blood, no basic first aid to even clean the area had been performed. As I know this can be done by the school (using gloves obviously) as this is covered in the course I am currently studying, I was not impressed nothing was done at all!

I took her to the GP straight away and he advised me she now had an eye infection. She started AB's that night and by Monday we could see her whole eye again which was great. Not only better for vision but so I could see the full extent of the damage to her eye.

We are off to see the Opthamologist tomorrow to check her eyes anyway and will obviously have her vision and health checked for this eye. She has had huge amounts of pain in that eye since the fall. Have everything crossed all is okay still.

I did bring the issue up with the Principal about the 'zero' basic first aid that was given and he told me they are very restricted in what they can do...well they did nothing...surely they could have cleaned her face at the very least! He even added a note to this weeks newsletter stating that they can only administer basic first aid..."Hey newsflash, you did NOTHING!"

Today, we were back to the hospital for an Orthotist appointment to fix her AFO as it broke near the hinge, so that is all fixed for now and if it breaks again, they will need to mould her for a new AFO.

In other news
She has Botox on 2nd November for her arm/elbow/hand.
