No abuse

The concern I had for the bruising on Tesla’s arms was genuine.  I asked her father what the bruises were from and he never answered.  That made me even more concerned.

I took the advice of a friend and went to Tesla’s school.  The nurse made a few notes and the following day (today) Child Services called and said they were going to talk to Tesla at school.

They called me back today to assure me that they don’t believe Tesla is being abused and Tesla said that her daddy took her to the doctor yesterday afternoon to have her arms checked and they were fine.

WTF!?  I ask and ask about Tesla’s bruises but get no answer.  Suddenly the school agrees there coud be some abuse going on and John rockets Tesla to the doctor’s office (without informing me as the custody order states) to “prove” Tesla is not being abused.

I should have known he would only be out to cover his ass.  I wasn’t looking to prove that “anyone” was abusing Tesla, I just wanted answers. 

The race to have a doctor declare Tesla’s bruised arms as a case of a rough-house girl makes me suspicious.  Her doctor said I am welcome to call and talk to him anytime about Tesla’s appointments, whether John informed me of the appointment or not.

Doc says at this point he doesn’t believe anyone is grabbing up Tesla, and that is a relief.

I just hope they are all correct. 


Grab Marks

Example of bruising from being “grabbed up”

I went online to search for images of bruising from being grabbed up by the arm.  This is a picture from the Maine educational site for detecting and preventing child abuse.

These pictures are my daughters arms.



The last I saw Tesla was Mother’s Day Sunday.  On the 15th (Tuesday) I began asking to see Tesla and take her to the May Fair on Saturday.  I didn’t see Tesla for a week and finally on Sunday John said I could have her in the afternoon.  I did not expect to see her arms all bruised up and when I call or text John, he ignores me.  I believe someone is grabbing up my child and if John isn’t concerned, maybe there is a reason.
