This doctor was very nice, confirmed that we handled everything right,that he wasn't at risk for concussion, and it didn't sound like he needed stitches.
Then....she said the only thing she would be concerned about was him getting tetanus. Say what? Then, said we *did* have him updated on his vaxes? Being on the phone, I should have said,yeah! But, noooo. I say our dc have an exemption and are not vaxed.
No more nice doctor. And...no more nice mommy.: This doctor proceeded to ask me if I was aware of the dangers of not vaxing,and that here in our city, have been breakouts of measles,whooping cough, and once ya get tetanus,ya can't take it back.
Sorry, doc picked the wrong day to lecture this momma. With a very deep breath, I informed her that most people who choose not to vax, do not make the decision lightly, and are well informed about the diseases the vaxes are made to prevent,and informed on how tocare for our dc,should they become sick with a vpd. I told her I always tell docs,so if my dc IS sick with a "vpd", the docs don't miss it. And, once you get a vax, you can't take that back,either!
I informed her that my ds's doctor w/i the practice,has been very supportive of having us in the practice. But this conversation was leaving a very bad impression.And I hung up.
I am soooo looking for a new doc. Just sick of this type of harrassment.
Maybe I will try to find an older DO.
I guess I posted this, as I woke up with huge personal issues going on,and didn't feel like I had a lot of confidence today. Ha! I found my voice when I was about to get the lecture on vaxes.Do *not* tell *me* bs about vaxes.
We have voices mommas,and they come out-for me, my mamabear comes out-and I quickly find my voice. I do pick my battles, but I don't take bs from a gp on call. No way. Never.
Way to stay strong, mama. It's about time these bullies learned that they work for you, you know?

When a stupid man is doing something he is ashamed of, he always declares that it is his duty. --George Bernard Shaw
that also goes to show you this doc is a total moron that knows nothing about Tetnus and how one gets it!!
