Our Ripple Effect...


"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change the way you think about it." ~Mary Engelbreight

Well, as I mentioned a few weeks ago, we find ourselves in the throws of second opinions. Our new Pediatric Ophthamologist said Children's in Dallas has a great Neurology Dept. Our wonderful nurse at our pediatrician's office got all our info over to them so quickly, we were able to score an appointment tomorrow at 11:30. I almost canceled it today after Dr. Marks called back and said he'd viewed the video and thinks we need to schedule another EEG. Since now I feel like they are giving Kendall a bit more attention. I don't know what I expect to hear. I'm almost afraid to hear anything else, though I suspect it will be something similar to what Dr. Marks has told us. Our pediatrician's nurse put it to me this way. "If you get a second opinion, you most likely won't regret it...but if you don't you'll always wonder." So, I guess that is one of the reasons to go. What's one more appointment in our long list of current appointments? We canceled our PT yesterday because of the weather, and were unable to go today either, but Nonna came over and gave Kendall a pretty good workout. She hasn't had a bowel movement since Friday (TMI...I'm sure) but we think it is because of the medicine. One more thing that makes me hate that darn Klonnopin. OOOOOHHHHH! Wait a minute! just as I was typing that Justin started screaming from the living room. It seems the pear juice, prunes, Miralax, and massage must have worked! Thank God!!! Wish us luck tomorrow. We'll keep you posted as always!
