The Right People

Having worked with Sam and Alex and their different medical issues, I have had to deal with a lot of different medical doctors. During all of these visits and appointments I have had to wait anywhere from a day or two upwards to 6 months or more to get into. Most of the time the doctors that I need to really see take the longest to get into.

::frustrated sigh::

As previously stated it looks like Alex does not have a hernia but is severely constipated in his bowel. This requires the a specialist to help get it all going and stay going over a 4-6 month period of time. Now pediatric gastro-entraologist (yes I know I totally slaughtered the spelling) tend to be those kind of doctors that you have to wait 2-3 months to get into...

...that is unless you happen to have the pediatric surgeon who referred you in the first place call to set up your appointment. LOL Then not only do you NOT have to wait and wait and wait BUT you get a call at 5:30pm on a Friday night saying you have an appointment Monday morning at 11:30am!!!

This is so me doing a happy dance around my living room!

I have decide that I need to have Dr. H on my speed dial as I have several specialist that I have been waiting on for more than a few months to get into yet.It really helps to have people in the right places. But mostly it most definitely helps to have the Lord opening doors so that my son can be all ready to go before we move at the end of next month.

P.S. Okay just realised that today is Thursday, but you get the point. LOL

For Heaven's the time you get to see the "specialist" heck could freeze over by then. That makes me so made that the people that actually know what there doing take so long to get into. I'm glad you were able to get in quick! Poor guy!!
