guys, go to the dentist. also, brush and floss. not just because i want my brother-in-law to get more business, but because if you put things off, they just get worse. a stitch in time saves nine. don’t throw stones in glass houses. wait, that doesn’t make any sense.
amina just got a tooth extracted today because the cavity was too deep. sure, maybe we suck at parenting, but the other two kids don’t have cavities like her. i think its because she doesn’t brush as hard as the boys do. so we will be doing the brushing and flossing for her.
oh, i haven’t told you guys the coolest thing – Amina should be starting school within the next two weeks inshallah. we finished the IEP (individualized education plan) with chicago public schools a week and a half ago. then they have 10 calendar days to place her. she’ll have a shared aide to help her around the school and also to act as a scribe when she gets tired of writing. she hasn’t been to school since june and i think she’s tired of being at home.
work this week isn’t so bad. i’ve averaged about 5-6 patients. i did have a patient that drove me nuts yesterday, demanding to stay in the hospital. whatever happened to doctor knows best? i’m really thinking of opening my own clinic. but i keep thinking of all the paperwork i’d have to do and ditch the idea.
