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.

    Some people see something that's bigger and more important than our weight... our true selves. Maybe when she saw you she recognized the friend she knew in college and the 70lbs didn't register! One day more people will be like her and love us for who we are rather than judge us for what they see.

    I hope you get the answers you need to help Dd. Have you looked online for people who have had similar problems? It may be rare, but there are others out there!

    Best wishes to you and your Dd!
