pacemaker in public school
I am the mother of a child with a pacemaker. My daughter is totally pacemaker dependent and just entered kindergarden. She had her pacemaker implanted the day she was born--she was born with complete heart block. I am concerned about rought recess play since her pacemaker is in her abdomen and her wires are external to veins at this point.
Anyone have any experience with public schools? Any suggestions for an anxious parent? I have already had a meeting with her teachers, principal, etc. and as of yet they have not been overly helpful.
All suggestions for dealing with this problem are appreciated, send email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I am not planning on letting any of this shorten my life. I am planning on living a long happy battery operated life. You never know maybe it will keep me alive longer. I sure know one thing I would have been dead before starting school without it.
