I spoke to the principal about my concerns about Bradley's attendance. He will be absent for 10 days in order to go to the service dog camp and will probably be absent for medical visits in Cincinnati. She said after 10 days of absences, additional absences would require a doctor's note. This was a big relief.

We hope to return in January although we are due to go back in December. Dr. Wong and Dr. Cripe really wanted to see Bradley in 6 months because of his changes in medications. In her progress note to Bradley primary physician, Dr. Cripe recommended close surveillance of his heart. She added a new diagnosis of cardiomyopathy.

I'm am concerned about getting Bradley to Cincinnati in Dec. or Jan. because Bradley is going to be absent from school for 10 days just to go to Service Dog Training camp. So I'm not sure how much he can more he can miss for doctor appointments. The student handbook did not specify a limit on absences but mentioned something about not approving absenses absences after 10. It was very vague, the way it was stated. It'd be nice to go while he is on Christmas break but I don't think my husband can get off work then.
It is so worth it to go again in 6 months. We may continue the 6 month schedule if Dr. Wong is in agreement. My husband is not easily impressed but he was so impressed, he is willing to go every 6 months. They are great there at CCHMC!!

We drive 8 hours to see Dr. Wong. Dr. Wong and her team are the best! We will be coming back to her in November.
