Have you set up a 504 plan for her? if you're in the US, and she has a qualifying medical condition, you can speak with the district resources people and get a 504. It takes over when the allowed medical absence limit is reached.

i am going to talk to a lawyer and i think i will home school her of course the school dont like it but i dont care all they care about is the grant money they get for each child and also people are telling her that her being home school will mess her up on going to college and that because she will be home schooled she wont have the chance to make something with her life some people can be cruel i told her she can do what she waanted to with her life and she is smart and i have the love and confidence that she will do it she is a great girl all she talks about is going to college .she doesnt do drugs smoke or any thing like some of her freinds and im proud of her for that this is what makes me so upset and breaks my heart thank you all for your advice and listeing

If you haven't filled them in on a chronic medical condition, and you are not providing Dr's notes for each absence, yeah, they will get on you.
Get them in the loop with her condition, and every time that she misses, send her with a doctor's note.

Have you given them a doctor's note explaining the situation? If they are still harassing you even though they are aware it's a medical situation and she's still doing all her work... I'd either talk to a lawyer about my options... or home school.

school is complaning because she is sick and missing so much which cant be helped i dont ssee when she is sick and vomiting alot at school how they think she can concentrate. they tell me to force her to go to school when she is sickk that is not right to me we are so stressed out haveing to deal with the sickness itself then we have the school on our backs complaing even though she makes up any work she has missed while being sick they still jump on us she has chronic irritable bowle syndrome which is harder on a child than a adult lost and dont know what to do anymore
