This week is a merry-go-round of medical appointments, visits, hospitals, and hand sanitizer.
I spent two hours yesterday and today visiting my friend in the ICU. He is doing much better today. He is much more awake and responsive. Today he told the doctors and nurses that they were all very attractive people, every last one of them. He is right most of the people who work in Hanneman ICU look like they stepped off the set of Grey’s Anatomy. He then tried to convince the doctors after the surgery on his foot he should go home two days after that. I think he is still in denial how serious his condition was, he should be moving off the ICU floor soon. They said, ummm yeah, no you will be here for a while. I can’t believe the improvement in one day. It was nice to sit and chat with him, instead of hold his hand as he slept.
This afternoon I ran around paper work for Ryan’s TSS request. I had to fill out papers, pick up more papers at the school and drop them all off at the agency. TSS was SUPPOSED to start the first day of school. I am not hopeful we will see one till after Oct. What a pain in the ass. I hate waiting for the services. Drives me crazy.
Then the boys both had their well kid visit. Together. Oh my. Both are in excellent shape for the shape they are in. We have a very thorough pediatrician and we were in there for an hour and a half, poking and prodding the boys and answering questions. Ryan may need glasses and needs to see the Otolaryngologist for a very enlarged tonsil, that has been that way for six months. Onwards.
Tomorrow morning we have a rescheduled Autism diagnosis, you know the appointment where we sat there for two hours on a Thursday and I never got to have a nap, then worked till 3am. Again going into it I feel nothing much. I know they won’t tell me anything until the follow up a few weeks from now. If Ryan is on the autism spectrum he is. If he is not, he is not. In reality I cried over this when we started pursuing a diagnosis a YEAR ago.
As you see I have been spending way too much time in and around doctors and hospitals. So glad I rode my bike the fifteen mile trip to the hospital and back yesterday and today because I would have missed some glorious weather.
