Mom Sides:

“I’ve been worried about Maria. She has been complaining about stomach aches several times s each week for the last few weeks. Sometimes it is after breakfast, sometimes after dinner, and sometimes I have to pick her up at school. . At first I gave her some tums and hot tea but this didn’t seem to be help her. At times I’ve given her some Tylenol which seems to help a little but this keeps happening and I’m getting worried she may have something serious.
The school nurse has been calling me about three times each week. I usually pick her up from school and she comes home and rests. That seems to help but my boss is giving me a hard time about leaving work so frequently. Her father travels for business a lot so he hasn’t been around much so I’m the one who has to pick her up and deal with this. I don’t know how much longer I can do this”
