WOW...I'm sold
.

I just keep kicking myself because the thought to go to Hopkins just never really occurred to me. I did think it for a moment while I was still in the hospital from giving birth but at that time I had no real choices...I guess I just need to look forward and no longer back...should of, could of, would of...SO WHAT, I am there now, right? :)

Tomorrow we are going to Hopkins to see another Pediatric Ophthalmologist. The Crazy thing is all the eye doctors we have seen have been wonderful and other then the location of where they operate perfect fits. We are seeing Dr.Parsa since he is already at Hopkins and actually recommended. Chris and I along with Dr. Brenner have made the decision to have all of Tatum's care handled there, this is going to make everything easier for all involved. Hopefully my insurance is not going to have a problem with my latest slew of doctors... At least now I know the eyes are going to be fixed when she is ready and everyone is comfortable with it. Dr. Brenner is having a MRI scheduled for her and we can move on from that point.

Crazy 4 heart docs saw her and only 1 cleared her for surgery...Would you send your child to CCA...I know, I know, rehashing, but... I am most likely going to take any stab at Dr. Lindsay I can, so bashing her to anyone that well listen or read is something that may happen time to time...and when I say bashing all I mean is telling the truth...She is very nice but I think that her decisions speak for themselves...
Really the only 1 out of 4 no wonder she did not want me there anymore...crazy little lady!!! Good thing I do not hold grudges LOL... Don't worry I am really in the process of letting it go just a tiny bit frustrated at times...

Wish me luck tomorrow, Tatum and I are hitting this apt alone (due to the short notice) I am sure we'll have no problem driving around Baltimore. Actually I am not that bad with directions so going alone this time forces me to learn the way.

With the exception the our pediatrician, ALL of our docs are at Children's... SO much easier, plus we can pop in wherever if need be. We do that with Nutrition sometimes.

Good luck, call me tomorrow with GOOD news that you like your doc! :)

Good luck Lisa. I hope you like your new doctor. Please, vent away! So frustrating that there isn't more you can do . Then the nerve of them to tell YOU not to come back, UGH!! Okay, I will move on with you. LOL. Have a safe trip.

If you ever need anything while in town or want to have lunch, we are so close!

Good luck today ladies! I can tell you from experience with my Mom, JHU is WORLD CLASS! Those doctors can work MIRACLES!
On a seperate note, Nancy seems to miss having Emma at school. She was saying something about Emma yesterday...I'm not sure what she was talking about because by the time I realised who she was talking about she's moved on, but I thought it was cute anyway...
