Anesthesia Twice in Two Weeks?

Kendall recovered from the traumatic experience.  And the same procedure under anesthesia is scheduled for this Thursday.  I'm actually sick about it.  We have to do it the facility where the Dr.'s office is.  He doesn't apparently have any privileges at any of the children's hospitals.  Imagine that.  Our ophthalmologist's office even got involved trying to schedule with them so she would only have to go under anesthesia once.  He wasn't having it.  I'm not surprised that he doesn't play well with others...

I'm going to put her in God's hands and go with the flow.  But it sure does make me nervous not to have a pre-op or pediatric anesthesiologist.  They have no idea what they're in for. 

I may sound slightly calloused, but really what the hell am I supposed to do?  This is our only option.  Everyone I have talked to says the same thing.  This guy is the worst with kids and parents, but world renowned.  Whatever.  I just can't wait for him to try and make my 6'5" husband upset.  Justin's very slow to anger....but the one time I did see him angry, it was because somebody messed with his little girl.

In other news, Kendall has a video EEG scheduled next week, and an examination under anesthesia for her eyes the week after that. 

And believe it or not, she's been sleeping with that darn wedge every night for at least six hours.  Baby steps. 

Kamden may or may not be testing for his black belt this weekend.  He's worked his little butt off, but we won't know for sure until Friday night.  He has to break boards in class on Thursday.  I'm full of anxiety about all that too!

I can't wait for this week to be OVER.

Please keep us in your prayers.

I haven't followed your family's posts in a long time, but I was showing my husband some of the latest and he suggested you contact one or both of these Chiropractic Neurologists, supposed to be the best around: Dr. David Clark Dallas or Dr. Joel Brandon Brock of Rockwall Pediatrics. I know you see doctors all the time, so I have no idea what your opinion is but I just wanted to pass that along. Kendall is growing up so fast and those curls have stuck! And I love your frazzle level! It is what has gotten Kendall all this way! Ginger

I believe you!

The board-breaking is tough to anticipate but amazing to watch. He's already done it, right?

Lord, please bless this family and carry them through each trial this week. Amen.

I hope everything went okay for the urodynamic study...I feel your frazzle level as my bear mason had to do it awake too..they don't tell you what it's like until you're in there and then you want to pretty much die rather than see them go through that .... don't know how anyone finds it easy to stay conscious, moms included!! anyway...your children are beautiful and thank you for sharing your story.
