Today we went down to our follow-up appointment with Dr. Louis. She is our new doctor in the Special Needs Clinic. As I was told, she is wonderful! I love how she listened to me. We spent a lot of time going over her medical history. We got a million new prescriptions to fill for next month. Bella had a CBG and Chem 7 done. We were there three hours.
But it’s little things like going to the doctor’s that are such big deals. We travel by ambulance. I call and sent up a time for the Ambulance company to come and pick us up, then we spend hours getting all the equipment, meds, papers, and general stuff ready. ( I am assured that it’ll get easier to pack up and go – time is a great teacher. ) It is nice, though. My hour to hour and a half commute to Texas Children’s Hospital is reduced to forty minutes when you are in an ambulance! :) I am surrounded by one EMT, one paramedic, and one RN. This girl is in good hands.
My poor neighbor, though. He was coming down the street and saw the ambulance. He hastily parks his truck, and comes running up our driveway as we are coming down on the gurney. I quickly reassure him – this is how we roll! Poor guy! He thought she had tanked already. No, no. Bella is doing well. Jack, you have a heart of gold!
Bella is doing well. Everyone is hoping….and crossing their fingers…..and knocking on wood….and praying that she stays well. We love ya little one!
Michelle asked about church – she doesn’t go. When she can travel by car and people can be around her without being covered in sanitizer, then we’ll think about it! ;)
