Sick SS and I feel powerless
So my SS got an ear infection that probably related to having a sinus infection. Dad got him to the doctor but not without a fight from both of us. Lol SS put up a good fight at first going in to see the doctor but was a brave boy. He was treated and sent home with ABX and ear drops.
The night before dad asked me to take him to the doctor because he was running a job the next day at work. He works 7-330 and I work 230- 11p, so there is plenty of time to take him. It sucks and I felt supper bad when I had to remind him that iIcould not leagelly take SS to the dr. We are not married yet and I am not his parent/ leagl guardian. Calling BM and having her take him was not an option due to her not having a car, money and not to mention that she is court ordered supervised visits. Since it was before dad's pay day, i was covering the bill and medicine with my FSA card ....yeah, NOT having any contact with bm is what's best now.
How can I take him to the doctor for futher appointments because I know it will happen again! A co-worker mentioned something about going to the court house to obtain a common law marriage certificate. Is there any other way? Also I know nothing of his past medical history where can iIget that. Dad takes him to the ER for everything and to his clinic which is an internal medicine physician, so no pediatrician! As soon as i can i will get peds established.
Thank yall for the guidance!
