Nathan Brindle's post re real sickness reminds me of the Scout who complained
most of the week about stoumach pains but whose SM brushed it off as
homesickness. His parents visited Thursday night and also brushed it off.
Saturday he was operated on with a burst appendix -- he came out fine but
it was a bit of a shock to the leader and parents. The camp nurse had
suggested a trip to the local hospital just to check it out but the parents
and leader didn't think it necessary. Fortunately, we had recorded it in
the bound health record, including the fact that the parents had overruled
the hospital check. The threatened suit was dropped immediately.
