Stacie Lewis’ experience raising hell…
... erm, raising a little girl with severe brain damage. The blog began in 2009 when May was 4 1/2 months old.
Currently, May enjoys bouncing and the dulcet tones of dub step.

I kicked a doctor off May’s team, Part II: The response
Last week, I kicked a doctor off May’s team. I did that. Me.
I’m not, shall we say, subtle with my opinions. If something needs to be said, leave it to the American to say it. But, that doesn’t convert necessarily into full blown complaints, or formal dismissals.
So, it took me a few days to send the email, to the whole of May’s team, requesting that she never work with May again. I haven’t made a request like that before. I didn’t hear from the team for a few days more. Then, the nurse at May’s school wrote me. She’d forwarded my letter to the consultant for May’s school and the lead pediatrician at the specialist centre where May’s team are based, both who oversee the doctor. She also informed her managers.
Clearly, May’s team took me seriously. Could they be as horrified by this doctor as I am? I wonder now if they’ve been waiting, hoping someone wrote down officially, what they have been thinking all this time. After all, I’m concerned about May – but they have a whole school full of children to worry about, all of whom see this doctor.
I felt very grateful and told her as much. I thought it would end there.
On Tuesday, the doctor’s direct supervisor phoned me. She is conducting an investigation into my complaint. She wanted to reassure me that she would inform me of its result.
I feel like I’ve entered the Twilight Zone. What could possibly happen next that is entirely reasonable?
