Follow-up

I GOT!!!!!  I REALLY GOT IT!!!!!!  I GOT THE REFERRAL!!!!!  I did exactly what I had planned: called Dr. Shimamoto's office and had Spencer's records faxed to us.  Called our pediatrician and made an appointment for first thing on Tuesday!!!  At the appointment, the doctor was very sympathetic and said enough is enough.  He was wonderful.  Little did he know that this was make or break time.  If he was even slightly hesitiant, I would have fired him.  That's right....Doctors work for me.  I am the boss!!!!!

I think it really helped giving him another copy of his AZ medical records.  He saw that he was on antibiotics for 3 weeks at at time trying to clear up his sinuses.  The great thing is that I have an appointment with Dr. Kelly (isn't that funny) on the 14!  Spencer's birthday.  I hope this is the best gift I can give him.  It will be interesting to see what the ENT says.  I may even get a second opinion and go to Dr. Muntz who is the head Pediatric ENT for Primary Children's Hospital. I have friends that have seen Dr. Kelly or Dr. Muntz and they really like each one.  Thanks for the support, neighbor referrals, and I will let you know how the appointment goes on Wednesday!!

You go girl! Hi-- hope you don't mind that I hopped on over here from Barnes blog. Your family picture is completely SPECTACULAR! Breathtaking! And that is totally & completely my feeling about doctors. You've got to take charge. It's a tough world out there and mom's need to speak up. You know what's going on. Miss you guys! It's fun to catch up on your life. aimee

I'm so glad! Now hopefully you can get him back healthy. Don't feel at all bad about having to get tough with the doctors. I had to do it with Emi and Ada and getting their tonsils out. Good luck next week!

Oh my gosh I SO feel for you. Medical issues are the worst and I can't stand the going around in circles trying to figure it all out. I should have gone to medical school. Poor little Spencer. I never even knew about this darn cough thing. I'm so glad that things are looking up...hope the ENT has some answers! Love, Shawni
