365~004 Happy baby


Well, at least the baby is happy.
I spent most of the day trying to figure out why I dragged all 5 of my girls out of the house at 830AM into 26 degree weather just to find out that the receptionist scheduled us for a pediatric doctor appointment when in fact we were to be seeing a pediatric gastrologist. Which turns out not to really be a pediatric GI doctor, but will see pediatric patients. Once we found the right spot to be in after 30 minutes of waiting in the waiting room, the GI doctors receptionist asked if I wanted to wait longer in there waiting room for him to arrive for work. Ummm, NO!!! I can think of better ways to spend my time. So, the girls and I headed home, and no sooner than we walked into the door did the phone ring. The caller id said it was the doctors office. When I picked up the phone the receptionist asked what my daughter needed to be seen for. I once again explained to her that she was born with duodenal atresia and that she had it repaired on her third day of her life by doctors at the Naval Medical Center and we were told to follow up at 4mo, 8mo, 12mo, and every year thereafter. The receptionist told me that she had never heard of deuodenal atresia and that the doctor wondered why they sent us to him. WHAT!?! Excuse me, did I just hear you right???? I was in complete shock at this point. I got off the phone and called our insurance company up and we are now waiting for ANOTHER referral to either the Naval Medical Center or the local Children's hospital, where they have pediatric specialists. Sheesh!!!!

  3. You poor thing. How frustrating! I hope you get in to a different doctor because I sure wouldn't want to go back there after the receptionist told you she had never heard of it!

  5. She is SUCH a cutie!!! And good grief - some doctors just shouldn't be doctors. I hope your next referral is a competent one.
