Just Another Day

Today was spent taking both the baby and K to their doctor for appointments.  Luckily they were able to squeeze them in at the same time.  K needed shots which we only found out about after having assured her she wasn't getting shots today.  Oops!  Sometimes that's how it goes.  She took them like a champ, though.

We had to talk to her primary care physician about getting a referral letter to Pittsburgh.  She thought it might be better coming from her Endocrinologist, but since she has only seen her Endo once, we thought the primary care physician was the way to go.  That should be ready for us in a few days.  She also got an EKG while there today, and we will get the results of that once I do a records request from the Everett Clinic.  Add that to my list of stuff to do tomorrow...

  1. Go to the school district to get psychology and evaluation records, plus copy of current IEP.
  2. Call UW Clinic again and leave message (AGAIN) for appointment down there with their PWS specialists.
  3. Print out and send in records request from UW Medicine.
  4. Fill out and drop off request from the Everett Clinic.
Every time it feels like I'm making strides more and more pops up to do.  At least it's not a neverending list of to-dos.  At some point it will be done and we will just wait and see what happens.  Sometimes I wonder if this is the best plan.  Couldn't we do this stuff here?  But then I think about how important this all is and I think it will be worth it in the long run.  For now we just have to stay the course and jump through all the hoops they need us to jump through.

Every day is one step closer to help.
