To the Neurologist after all
Life is always unpredictable, I think if it ever became too precitable it would be cause for concern. This morning we all packed into the car to drive to Children's Hospital of Wisconsin for our Neurology appointment. Yup, that's right. Monday the office called to cancel our appointment. Tuesday, while I was at work the called to ask if we still come for our appointment today as the doctor will be able to see patients now. Frustrated! I didn't know if I wanted to be upset at all the back and forth with the neurology office about this appointment or be happy that we could finally get in. I figure at least Norah's getting in to be seen, that's what is most important.
Jason and I often refer to Norah's neurologist as Dr. Doom-n-Gloom. We first saw her when I was 26 weeks pregnant. Despite Jason and I sharing that ending my pregnancy would never be an option, she talked about termination of my pregnancy and everything our baby would never be. She nicely told us it was her job to make sure we know. Thank you, but God has a plan for our baby girl and we couldn't wait to begin our journey of being Norah's parents.
Norah is in the business of proving that she is all of those things she was supposed to never be. Today I saw Norah's neurologist smile for the first time. Just by the expressions on her face alone you could tell how amazed she was with Norah. She thought Norah would be further behind in her motor skills. She was pleased to see how well Norah interacts with others. Even tough I know Norah is doing great, it was nice to hear her say it.
I'm still upset about the inconsistancy with Norah's appointments and feel like I should be leaving with more information from these appointment. I may need to start researching to find a new doctor, we'll see.
