Brain Dump

  • Izzy's neurology appointment was postponed due to a medical emergency for the doctor.  I hope whatever the emergency was, all is well.  So we go back in two weeks to see how she's doing.  I had planned on seeing neurology before she ran out of meds so I hadn't refilled it in case he wants to change what she's on but she is running out so S and I ran over to the children's hospital pharmacy today while we were up there for his podiatry appointment and got her new bottle. 
  • S was referred to podiatry a while back because I was concerned about how his feet roll inwards--he wears out one side of his shoes completely while the other side looks barely used.  It took a long time to get an appointment but we got one about six weeks ago and the podiatrist wants S to wear custom inserts.  We went in today to get them and when the tech pulled them out of the package, they were so small :p  Somewhere along the way the shoe size was mixed up.  So they took a new set of casts and are sending the too-small inserts back and getting the correct size made.  We go back in a month to get the (hopefully) correct pair. 
  • Izzy is still on the wait list for preschool.  We've been planning on her doing the weekly playgroup if she doesn't get in to continue getting support and working on social skills but we met with her EI worker earlier this week and they keep changing the program around and changing the criteria to qualify for group.  She is pretty sure Iz will still be able to get in but we won't know for sure until next month or maybe the month after.  Oy.
  • We moved!  We are technically farther away from the hospital but its a straight shot up the highway so its actually quicker than before.  Plus I don't have to drive an extra almost two hours every appointment running kids in the wrong direction for babysitting.  Logistically, this will make things much easier for me :p  And with three kids needing shuttling to specialists and therapies nearly an hour away, two school aged kids with homework, my own homework, and all the other things that go with just normal life, anything that makes things easier is a very good thing ;)
  • My cat has become even more protective of the kids lately.  He has taken to sleeping outside the boys' bedroom door and guarding it.
  • I hate humidity.  Please go away
  • Have a fantastic weekend, everyone!

Yearly cardio visit!

Izzy had her yearly cardio visit last week. There were some very heavy rains the night before so there was a lot of flooding and getting to the hospital was a bit of an adventure!  When we finally got there, parts of the hospital, including the parking garage, had been flooded and were being cleaned up and dried out.  We were sent up the road a bit to park and then shuttled to and from the hospital--I'm pretty sure the shuttling was Izzy's favorite part :)

Izzy went silent during the appointment and spent most of the time either staring at the floor or hiding her eyes. However, she was mostly cooperative and did respond with head shakes and nods and didn't hide under any chairs or tables ;-)  She didn't completely shut down so it's an improvement!

Her echo looks great so we have clearance for another year.
