How best to support me

I need to attend all appointments with specialists, doctors, school folks related to Steve and Ben.

  • This helps me stay up on how to provide good support and advocate.
  • If I miss an appointment please share summary information with me.
  • Also, I won’t schedule a full work day if there is an appointment to attend.
  • I use all my vacation time each year at work.
  • Realize time off is very important to my happiness and my health.
  • I appreciate understanding in not expecting me to change my vacation dates to accommodate work.
  • Realize I have been through LOTS of waiting with my past medical history. IF you tell me results will be ready on a certain day, I expect to receive this information.
  • Please give me the best phone numbers to contact someone for information or better yet, contact me directly!
