I'm feeling overwhelmed with specialists this month. I guess it is to be expected since we are seeing a bunch of specialists this month...
On top of the specialist we expected to see, Mary is having an issue with her heart, so we have to see a cardiologist.
Summer programming ended and Mary is trying to decide which color DynaVox VMax to order. Go here to vote on the color Mary should get. I'm really looking forward to the day we can take her DynaVox to the doctor's office and she can participate actively (as much as a 4 (almost 5) year old can) in the conversation. Today she used a voice-output switch and her pediatrician seemed impressed.
Next we see a special orthopedist, then a dentist, then ENT, then GI and opthamologist. And in there somewhere we have to get into cardiology. We should probably get checked out in Urology, as well, but that hasn't been thoroughly discussed. Mary has to have blood drawn for a 3rd time in 2 weeks and I am not looking forward to that. She is an awful stick! Slow blood and weak veins that no one can find... terrible time. It is so sad to watch. :(
Right now I am watching Mary play on the living room floor. She is scooting around on her belly and I don't know why, but she is making a beeline for the dining room. Overall, she is a happy and playful kid. We have good nurses working with her now. What a relief that is!!! We are patiently waiting for the Pre-K notification that says if she is in the morning or afternoon class. School starts Sept. 8 and Mary is going to be in regular ed. at the disctrict!
