2nd nappy rash on Thursday in May’13: father visits “T” find her in a panty. Father request the nanny to put her on a nappy because he wants to go to the shop with her. Father sends me a sms stating he is taking her to the hospital because she has diarrhoea and nappy rash. I respond saying that is news and will check this when he returns “T” from the hospital. 10.45pm at night father states that he is not bringing “T” back as she is in a lot of pain and he is going to look for medicine at another pharmacy in Sunninghill because the pharmacy at Olivedale hospital didn’t have the medicine prescribed. He therefore will bring “T” back in the morning. I say no because how can I not be allowed to see my daughter when she is in pain. He refused to bring her back & didn’t want me to meet them at sunninghill pharmacy. I go to the police station and with the help of the officers he brought her back. At the police station I ask for three woman police officers to witness with me if Gosiame have a nappy rash or not. We checked and saw no nappy rash. Father states the doctor confirmed that she does have a nappy rash and she did have diarrhoea since Tuesday. I took “T” to the hospital for vomiting & sore throat that Monday night. Doctor diagnosed tonsillitis and prescribed antibiotics & probiotics. Monday night “T” weighed 16.7kg as per medical note & Thursday she weighed 16.6kg. If she had diarrhoea shouldn’t some weight loss be evident?). I only notice now that the father did get the medicine from Olivedale & he was lying about sourcing medicine somewhere else.
