Its like the floodgates have opened. I spent so long trying to get referrals, trying to find places that could give us some answers, trying to find out the reasons behind why I had this feeling things were "off". And since we switched to this new pediatrician, things have slowly trickled in. We got therapy started for Iz and S for their anxiety, S has been getting special ed services at school to help him with his problem areas, S went to cardiology (where we found out those symptoms chalked up to "FTM worry" all those years ago were actual due to a CHD), we got a referral to genetics for all three kids, a referral to neurology for Iz, we started the evaluation process for B (and kept hitting roadblocks *sigh*). Seems like a lot, eh?
But now? All of that stuff up there was over the course of almost a year. But now we have Iz getting a full genetic workup and the geneticist is referring her to neuropsych to get some evaluations. We discovered a problem neurologically so she's got that 24 hour EEG coming up plus her MRI found that cyst in her brain so she has a pediatrician appointment soon to follow-up on that and decide whether we are going to test her pituitary function. Her Early Intervention coordinator and EI playgroup teacher are moving forward with repeating her evaluations to see if she qualifies for special ed services next year to keep her in the program because of her speech/social/anxiety issues. And she has her ophthalmologist appointment coming up as well. B had his intake appointment with neuropsych and is scheduled for a full evaluation. S is scheduled for an intake appointment with the same neuropsych. I finally found a dentist willing to see all three kids (as soon as they hear heart kid, ADHD/SPD, and autism-like behaviors, the dentist offices are "full" or "not equipped") so those appointments are coming up, too. Plus all of our normal appointments :p The next month is busy busy busy busy busy :p
