The Pediatric Neurologist
Friday, November 16, 2012
We're done with the neurologist appointment. We left at 9:15 and got home around 1:30ish. The appointment was ok. She wanted to talk about headaches the whole time and told me "I don't know the answer to that" on every single question I had regarding the tumor. She did tell me that I should schedule Dd with the normal pediatrician for a basic check-up and then told me to ask all specific questions re. the tumor to the retinal specialist. Since the retinal specialist told me all that he knows about the tumor already (and that wasn't too much because it is rare) I think we'll just wait until our appointment in January. She did a neuro exam on Dd (all good) and showed us pictures of Dd's brain (it's there!) Afterwards, Dd and I went out for lunch. On our way to lunch, someone was yelling my maiden name and when I looked around, it was a "girl" I went to college with 30 years ago! She recognized me and said that I hadn't changed. (She conveniently overlooked the 70 pounds I've gained.) I wouldn't have recognized her at all which is probably due more to my faulty memory than anything else. It was nice to see her though. We exchanged e-mail and phone numbers.
